You should check with sonoftumble. He claimed insider information on SL-HDRn.

I might type 2K for 1080p.

Mura correction / Factory calibration

Good news: In order to achieve a consistent uniformity across the entire surface of the screen, Panasonic performs a Mura correction / Factory calibration of each flagship GZ2000 panel.

https://www.radiantvisionsystems.eu/...-Demura_EN.pdf
https://www.cybernet.co.jp/fpis/products/demura.html







"The de-mura system includes a signal generation unit, an image pickup unit and a control unit. The signal generation unit display test pattern on the OLED screen. The image pickup unit including a high resolution 2D matrix chromameter can capture CIE 1934 XYZ of each OLED pixels and distinguish the uneven light output of each pixels. The control unit control the entire system procedure and generate luma correction data to make screen uniform and color correction data to let screen output true color. Both brightness correction data and color correction data will be compressed and save inside the display memory. Display control circuit uses these correct data to realize de-mura function.
Such kind of technique is based on the idea of capturing the images of the panel in different colors and grayscale, followed by the calculation of the intensity distribution of Mura. And then it is converted into the compensation data which TCON can read, and finally the TCON restores the images in real-time."

Apparently, Sony also performs a factory calibration on its Master Series TVs.



This factory calibration, currently perfectible, must become common practice!
No more panel lottery!

I didn't think this was news? People who bought GZ2000s and the Sonys haven't been bowled over with a perfect panel as we'd hoped. There are still reports of problems in the https://www.avsforum.com/forum/40-ol...ignetting.html thread.

I don't think any OLED panel could ever be called perfect but I guess Sony and Panasonic are distinguishing themselves apart from LG with their mura correction process. There are many anecdotal mentions here and elsewhere that Sony/Panasonic panels have fewer uniformity issues than LG's products. There are also actual calibration reports of uniformity being a bit better on the S/P panels. Whether any of this matters, in the long run, is purely in the eye of the end viewer/owner. My A9F could not ever be called perfect, but unless I'm actually looking for imperfections, which are almost always only seen in low lit, greyish backgrounded content, I'm very happy with the uniformity on my display.

It’s the beginning of the factory calibration era (hopefully). Hence the current factory calibration process is perfectible.

Hi DanBa...

I took Dave Harper's lead and echoed his avforums thread here on AVS.

Having an hdr10 compliant JVC x990 projector, I acquired both a player led capable 4k uhd dv player (Sony x800m2) and the hdfury vertex to spoof that player to see my x990 as the Sony A1 display, and engage the Sony A1 LLDV processing in the player.

The result, the x800m2 is outputting both DV and HDR10 mastered titles, with a level of luminance dynamics I have been unable to attain using the Panasonic ub820.

My next steps...

- refine what calibration adjustments on the projector best serve the LLDV DV 12B signal (HDR PQ10 ?) from the player.

- look into testing alternative LLDV EDIDs, and since the original vertex only offers the Sony A1 LLDV V2 EDID, the option for testing alternatives may be limited to the newer hdfury devices which feature more robust LLDV support. I believe these hdfury devices would be vertex2, diva and maestro. I think the integral2 is basically a vertex as far as LLDV support.

- look into streaming apps or digital files hosted on the x800m2 and if/how they are handled by the LLDV process.

I am curious what other players are LLDV capable. The current list so far seems to be...

Oppo 203/205
Sony x700, x800m2 and x1100es

The 1st LLDV capable streaming device may be the 5th generation Apple TV 4k 32/64? I have been waiting on some feedback from a user posting in the avforums thread, before picking up the box myself. Edit: feedback looks good, so I ordered a ATV4K64 from the Apple refurb store. will be testing by end of the week.

Latest Multi-HDR table:

. Added HDR10+ support for Vizio TV
https://www.reddit.com/r/VIZIO_Offic...02030/f6wzsxe/

. New column "Mura correction factory calibration"
HDR TV can provide high quality images with more contrast and color.
These images should not be polluted by some visible panel imperfections (unevenness, irregularity or inconsistency in appearance) that could be fixed by a Mura / defect correction procedure.

  • Dolby have changed their guidelines, and removed support for 12-bit content from profile 4. (https://www.dolby.com/us/en/technolo...les-levels.pdf. "Profiles 4 and 7 might have a normal Full EL, or a MEL (Minimum Enhancement Layer). FEL for Profile 4 no longer supported".). This means no more 12-bit Dolby Vision from streaming sites, and that 4k Blu-Ray disc is the only method of getting 12-bit content, and that's only some discs, since Dolby seem to be doing their best to persuade content providers not to use 12-bit playback ("The MEL can be used to minimize the processing requirements for the enhancement layer and thus ensure broader use among UltraHD Blu-ray SoCs."). There seems to be a huge push away from 12-bit Dolby Vision now.
  • With dynamic metadata available in HDR10+ and limited understanding of Dolby's "secret sauce", I am finding in recent months and weeks a huge increase in the number of users on this forum (today on the 2019 LG C9 thread, facebook last week, AVS forum last week, etc) claiming that "HDR10+ is exactly the same as Dolby Vision". When I've searched, I have never found a recent, up-to-date, clearly-explained resource to show why this isn't correct. I find this immensely frustrating.

Perhaps you have too many constraints. You can either believe the various articles that say or imply that HDR10+ is entirely algorithmic or you can trawl through [SMPTE Connect] presentationsd (or join SMPTE) or you can interpret mastering manuals/whitepapers/tutorials (which is probably what the people that wrote the articles on CNET did). Naturally some of these sources are misinformed. Here's an example user manual: [Transkoder].

Or, knowing how it works, you can trivially interpret the (deliberately) vague [HDR10+ Whitepaper] by asking yourself key questions (e.g. automatic live presentations?!*).

*Okay that's a trick question because DoVi can also do live production using an algorithmic/un-shaded pipeline. It's just not typical.

I might type 2K for 1080p.

Many thanks for your reply. The Transkoder manual is great and I can try that next time. It's not just me that sets the constraints. The constraints are normally the situation: often I am trying to explain to someone in an entrenched position, often a dolby-hating HDR10+ fan, that "HDR10+ is not the same as Dolby Vision". These people are not going to go off and read links I provide to them, and if I try quote from them, they always come back with a response and it starts a discussion which goes out of control.

This is why I seek an updated version of this diagram, from a good source.

Here is a "constraint" which is my own, though, it needs to be simple enough to understand (not a layperson, that is asking too much, but an enthusiast), and at the same time detailed enough to refute the ridiculous assertion that the two formats are equivalent.

As one might expect there's no motivation for Samsung to say HDR-10+ is deficient so I wouldn't expect them to explain this. Although they could make explicit the real motivation is to save money in post. I suspect that given this workflow (from the Dolby grading guide):

Quote:


The Dolby Vision content creation process involves the following steps. Steps 1, 2 and 4 are required.

  1. Create the HDR Master
  2. Create Level 1 (L1) Analysis Dolby Vision Metadata
  3. Optionally apply creative Level 2 (L2) Trim Metadata [this step doesn't exist in HDR-10+ workflows]
  4. Create Deliverables
people would either understand that step 3 is important or they wouldn't. I don't expect Dolby or Samsung to say Dolby Vision is (incrementally) better than HDR-10+ because of step three or the converse. That sort of thing isn't done.

Another approach might be to ask on [LiftGammaGain] if anyone has seen a similar diagram for the HDR-10+ era.

Many thanks! Agreed, I'm not expecting Samsung or Dolby to do this, just hoping a neutral 3rd party would. I'll take a look at LiftGammaGain.

Multi-HDR

Latest Multi-HDR table:

. Changed "Mura correction factory calibration" to "Mura / defect correction" in order to avoid confusion with new Display Calibration column

. Added new column "Calibration"

HDR TV can provide high quality images with more contrast and color.
These HDR images available to the end user should match the director’s intent at the grading stage.
"Calibration is based on matching industry video standards that define how an image should look on any given screen when accurately matched to the given standard.
All displays drift over time, and ageing causes a loss of brightness and gamut that is not just drift related. These changes can happen a lot quicker than expected, and regular recalibration is the only way to maintain display accuracy.
Calibration is a necessity, not an option."
https://www.lightillusion.com/tech_info.html





1: External calibration software running on a laptop
2: External pattern generator
3: External colorimeter

http://www.portrait.com/calman-calibration-software/


=> Internal pattern generator
The internal pattern generator iTPG "reduces the barrier to entry by at least $1,500.
The iTPG has the potential to result in increased accuracy over an external TPG
for the following reasons:
. It operates at 10-bit precision, with CalMAN able to make full use of this precision
. It operates in RGB space, and is therefore not subject to the potential errors from RGB to YCbCr conversions such as rounding errors and / or incorrect matrix coefficients. "
https://www.avsforum.com/forum/139-d...l#post57417778

=> Internal 3D LUT with direct access
It allows to adjust the whole of the color volume.
https://referencehometheater.com/201...t-is-a-3d-lut/
https://www.hdtvtest.co.uk/news/lg-p...1801074534.htm

=> Internal colorimeter
It should reduce the barrier to entry: lower price with higher volume.
https://www.avsforum.com/forum/465-h...l#post58791536

=> Internal calibration software when TV’s processor is as powerful as current laptop’s processor



Universal audio/video receiver (Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, etc.) is achieved.
Universal HDR TV (HDR10, Dolby Vision, HEVC HLG HDR, VP9-HLG / VP9-PQ YouTube HDR, Dynamic HDR) is required.

Push for universal HDR TV!

How about 12-bit Dolby Vision streaming?

A presentation of Dolby Vision: 12-bit Dolby Vision here and there
http://www.mmsys2019.org/program/slides/walt-husak.pdf






Movie images from major film studios being captured in 16 bits, ideally the TV should receive a 16-bit video signal.
But the 16-bit data are too big for the various processing units from post-production to TV: a compression has to be done.
Dolby has adopted a "visually lossless compression" in 12-bit PQ based on the Barten ramp.
http://www.plani.fr/wp-content/uploa...ventures-1.pdf
https://wolfcrow.com/what-is-aces-ac...coding-system/
https://www.smpte.org/sites/default/...c02-Miller.pdf



There are two types of UHD Blu-ray Dolby Vision: 12-bit Dolby Vision FEL and 10-bit Dolby Vision MEL.
https://www.avsforum.com/forum/465-h...l#post58228308





For the time being, streaming services (Netflix, Disney+, Apple TV+, …) support only 10-bit Dolby Vision.

However, there is a 12-bit Dolby Vision streaming profile "Dual-Stream Dolby Vision" specified by DASH.
https://dashif-documents.azurewebsit...ASH-IF-IOP.pdf





More bits less noises: high-end Sony TVs have a 14-bit internal video processing.
http://www.sonyinsider.com/2009/09/0...ip-technology/



"Any processing of a digital image results in some data loss. Acquiring and processing an image at a higher bit depth and then reducing to the desiring bit depth will minimize the impact of the data loss and provide a file with the desired quality."

.... with 12-bit Dolby Vision FEL getting rarer and rarer. Never specified on the packaging either way.

Vudu used profile 4 in the beginning*. Sadly it's hard to see the bit depth in a random DoVi stream but pre-MEL P4 was 12b. They might have deleted all their P4 assets when they switched to P5 -- or not. I suppose since essentially no one really cares about this it will never change.

*According to Vudu

Corrected a typo: a Mura correction is not yet performed by LG at factory on production line, but it is rather Sony.
