DV vs HDR10- What's up with this?
I conducted an interesting experiment. I noticed that the HDR10 presentation of Bosch on my Sony 940c looked like many HDR10 presentations. That is highlights were over the top. However watching the DV version of Bosch on my B6 presented a very different image. Although highlights were far better and far more convincing as compared to 'real life', low lit scenes were too saturated and too grainy. These scenes looked like they came from a bad cable program.
I compared these identical low light scenes with Bosch on the Sony and the B6, and they were better on the Sony's HDR10 version. I wanted to rule out the display factor vs the DV/HDR10 factor. Which was to blame? So rather than using the LG Amazon's DV app, I used the Amazon app on my Samsung UHD BluRay player that's connected to my B6 to watch the same scenes. Since the Samsung doesn't have DV and only HDR10, this would make the source material apples to apples in terms of the Sony vs the B6. Both would now be HDR10 presentations. Watching the HDR10 low light scenes on the B6, color and noise were essentially identical to what I was seeing on the Sony.
So the culprit seems to be the DV presentation, at least as it relates to Bosch.
Has anyone seen this kind of issue? I was really surprised by it, given how good highlights looked in the Bosch DV presentation.
