Hardware and software requirements for HDR+, Dolby vision, and 4 K

Hi Everyone,
I am looking to purchase a monitor that is 4k, HDR/HDR+, and Dolby Vision capability. I have a few questions I am not clear on and I though this forum may to able to help.

I would like to know for each technology above. which requires software, hardware, or a combination of both to achieve their result.

By components:

1) 4K:I believe requires a graphic card and monitor both capable of 4k rez., video needs to be shot in 4k to see the added clarity of the picture.

2) HDR/HDR+ needs to be shot in HDR and a monitor with true 10 bit panel, 1000:1 contrast ratio. I don't think graphic card needs anything from a hardware perspective. The monitor is the biggest concern you need to be conscious of. Make sure it meets the true spec's for HDR10/HDR+ and not HDR8 panel with software adjustments.

3) Dolby Vision This one is the least clear to me. Some say it is a hardware solution with a required chip embedded in a dolby vision approved monitor ( I believe Asus has the first dolby vision approved montor available now ). But i have also heard dolby may be releasing it with a software licencing in the future. Dolby vision is not an open standard and vendors need to buy a licensing from dolby to use it unlike HDR which is free.

so if anyone can add their knowledge to this threads topic, i would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.
