It would be nice if there were actual impressions of what HDR10 vs. the Dolby Vision version playback is like. Does it make that much difference on a TV with ~1000 peak nits, or is it fubar on LCD no matter how adept the decoding?
Something else is that the installer I have contacted for my antenna wiring buys through AVAD and Samsung chat is balking at giving me a thumbs-up on the reseller authorization for a TV. The installer is AV Pros in Mountain View. Any idea if this is how legitimate resellers of Samsung operate? I see AVAD mentioned on several forums. So far the wiring went OK. But when I tried to call Samsung customer service number given through chat 1-800-samsung, it won't progress through the menu on key presses. I'm sort of stumped here.
The differences between DV and HDR10, is DV has less to no banding, posterization, and better color in some titles. The Full enhancement layer, I've just learned from Stacey Spears, has actual data from the master grade, that is missing from the HDR10 base layer. So you may see, brighter highlights and more detail within highlights, where HDR10 would clip.
In order to see a difference though for most, requires a side by side comparison.
HDR10+ currently from I understand, has only scene by scene functionality, frame by frame metadata is another area where DV edges out + along with being 12 bit.
HDR10+ information is limited right now, it is not clear right now, if tone mapping is handled by + or is display specific.
Another aspect of DV ICtCp color difference, a color model that Dolby co- developed for HDR, which is currently only on streamed content, at least until it adopted for UHDBD.
I can see the differences, I have a photographic memory. The DV stream of John Wick 2 had better highlight detail.
