No, it's static. The same tone mapping is applied throughout the entire length of content. How the content is tone-mapped depends on the metadata supplied. If it was mastered at 1000 nits, the display might follow the PQ EOTF perfectly up to 500 nits (for example), then roll off / compress the high end.I hesitate to say this, but if I am being honest I still don't quite get the difference between the Tone Mapping the TV HAS to do, and the optional Dynamic Tone Mapping you can turn on or off.
Is the standard tone mapping the TV has to do not dynamic?
First, don't confuse what Dolby Vision does with what the LG option does. Dolby Vision's tone mapping is carried out in a similar fashion to your TV's static tone mapping - except that it can optimise the tone mapping from scene to scene, as the system is capable of comparing the characteristics of the mastering display to your display at home. In both cases the creator's intent is observed.I thought I had it right in my head for awhile but I am not so sure now. But let me know if this is at all correct:
The Dynamic tone mapping will try to bring the luminance of a disc down to 1000. It does this on the fly and not very well.
Then The TV's standard tone mapping will bring that 1000 down to whatever it can actually handle.
Is that correct at all?
I don't think it was ever up on the US website for download via web browser for custom install via USB.LOL, whats up with it disappearing?
Just one note about this topic (it could have been more ): in theory you guys are right.No, it's static. The same tone mapping is applied throughout the entire length of content. How the content is tone-mapped depends on the metadata supplied. If it was mastered at 1000 nits, the display might follow the PQ EOTF perfectly up to 500 nits (for example), then roll off / compress the high end.
I can't know that since I'm on v4.10.25 with B8 It's your turn now for experimenting.I believe the Software Update app is still installed (isn't it returned when your run com.webos.applicationManager/listApps and Sure still finds it dynamically), but it is disabled somehow on the 5.x.x firmware.
No You have to dig in source codes (as I linked them in that post).Do you have such a document? It woudl be great if you can share it
Yeah, it happens most of the time with HDR with me as well. I recommend getting an official remote, this way there is no wondering or issues that might come up.
yeeeeep, this is a new (introduced in 8 series) undefeatable dimming, unfortunately there is no way to turn this off i am on same boat as you, i hate it so much, makes watching/playing sport such a frustrating experienceSo, I purchased the remote you recommended and did everything suggested with turning off the ASBL, but the issue still persists while playing the same two games. The dimming still happens
Any other suggestions? I'm really frustrated with this. It will be nice and bright and perfect, but still will be dark and then randomly brighten up....rinse repeat.
I have had my 77C8 up and running for a few days now and coming from a 65B7 I am loving it. The picture looks cleaner on anything that's less than pristine and motion is better. Also sitting at 6 feet it gives a fantastic cinematic effect. I haven't contemplated looking at slides but when I have been on a "natural" self coloured screen the uniformity looks great.
Just one minor first world niggle and that is the stand is very reflective , so much so that in a dark room it can be distracting as it reflects light from the screen. I just wonder if anyone else has seen this as an issue and if so what they did to negate it ?
I could just cover it with a piece of black material but that looks a bit untidy . I could spray the stand black but that's a bit awkward now the TV is in position and so am looking for a safe, easy, effective and elegant solution that preferably is reversible.
If this is true, then I am disgusted. I paid a LOT of money for this to watch movies and game.yeeeeep, this is a new (introduced in 8 series) undefeatable dimming, unfortunately there is no way to turn this off i am on same boat as you, i hate it so much, makes watching/playing sport such a frustrating experience
That's a great idea that I never considered although I have watched cars being wrapped. Thanks, I'm going to look into that idea.Why not vinyl wrap it? They have all sorts of colors even different material look now that you could use.
