But worry not. It'll throw one helluva a beautiful picture, likely better than you've ever seen before.
you can still get an appreciation of HDR, I have been on my jvc for couple of years at least
tone mapping just helps get signal remapped for capabilities of the display. if you can run a decent enough step up in output from over what ever output you are using or SDR then will get some gains with HDR. eg in my case i have SDR running at around 14 FL and HDR at 30FL does indeed give a decent enough gain with HDR
certainly not even OLED are truly HDR capable for the output LCD can achieve but OLED gets better blacks LCD can only sorta manage with trickery. projectors can get good blacks but lack the top end. but still tone mapping helps hear.
no display OLED / LCD or projectors even can manage the 10000 nits or so some source material is mastered at
none even manage the 4000 nits some titles are at.
check out the target luminance kris quoted for the ub9000 player for its tone mapping....
- OLED :1,000nit
- High Luminance Projector :500nit
- Basic Luminance Projector :350nit
- Super High Luminance LCD :1,500nit
- Middle or High Luminance LCD :1,000nit
- Basic Luminance LCD :500nit
