The catalyst for this whole thing is I said you should remove your avatar since you throw caution to the wind and follow your heart, its contradictory. Never did I say your credentials should be revoked. Dont put words in my mouth. I did suggest you should get up to date on your certification though... I did say that.
Its amazing you have an ISF Certified logo as your avatar, you should remove it since you dont actually adhere to any standards at all. Throw caution to the wind!!
Lets look at the very quote from you before I said that, and which brought about me having to defend myself, see if this reads as nice things to say? You said I shot first? I dont think so Dave, not from over here.
Does this not read as quite arrogant to you? Anyone? You put words in inverted commas and italicise them, it comes off very arrogant, sorry. Where I come from that is MOCKING someone clear as day. You continue to do so in the posts above. Its a dummy spit from where I am sitting. Harsh truth I know. I deleted yet another comment this afternoon because its just getting silly now. You expect me to sit idle while you take more jabs at me passive aggressively.
Why 120 nits? You even say “in my opinion”. So what makes that the way it is “supposed to look”? What if, as in my case with the LK990, I can hit 200+ nits?
In my opinion, the only way to truly tell what it’s supposed to look like is to present it on a display that has the full dynamic range and color gamut and reaches the target nits of the mastered source so there is no tone mapping whatsoever, no?
Whose ”reference” though? Your opinion’s? Because that’s what you seemed to have given here, not SMPTE specs or whatever. Unless I missed something?
Maybe someone that’s seen or works on those modular giant flat panel theaters in Taiwan or China can chime in since I am guessing maybe those may not look like the images you posted. Or maybe a DolbyVision certified theater with a super high brightness DLP?
How do we know they’re “out of whack” if none of us has 1,000, 4,000 or 10,000 nit projectors? There are absolutely no real specs for tone mapping yet, so who’s to say what is “right”?
I wonder why I said what I did then... Only one sentence in my reply was in bad taste in which I deleted, and if you read it without that sentence its completely down to earth and an actual structured reply, but you had an epic dummy spit and spewed a ton of insult my way, and here we are. Not only was your entire post incorrect, you were flat wrong (accusing me of the above), I WAS following a standard, and rightly pointed it out, you still have not acknowledged it.
Lets put it all to bed eh?
And dont reply mocking me for being the bigger man like you have already done a few posts back.
