There is certainly some potential here, for the Dynamic Range Slider to help optimize HDR performance on the JVC's.
If Frame-by-Frame Dynamic Tone Mapping were completely straightforward, and uncomplicated, then we wouldn't be needing any options for it: Auto, Low, Medium, High. So things are more complex than we would otherwise like to think.
Kris Deering's comments on the Dynamic Range Slider, if I'm understanding them correctly, suggest that the Slider allows the output from the Panasonic to be modified for the available brightness and dynamic range available on our Projectors. And as I indicated, the default setting is providing a particular value for this, which may or may not be suitable for any given projector or room.
So it seems that if we adjust the DRS to more suitably match our projector's brightness and dynamic range, it might allow for better performance of the JVC's DTM.
So this is what I've been thinking about, from a purely conceptual basis. How this ends up being translated into real-world performance, I don't know. But I think it is potentially a worthwhile avenue to explore.
