I was unaware of how much HDR10+ was on Prime

 


Prime Video have been big on HDR10+ for several years. They did some sort of deal with Samsung (who have never had Dolby Vision on their TVs) so that the Prime app on Samsung TVs would offer it.

It would have done the world a favour if Samsung supported Dolby Vision which is way ahead of HDR10+ in quality.

Re: HDR10+ Support

I appreciate your opinion but I have to disagree. 
HDR10+ is open source and it's dynamic metadata. 
Samsung only did it because Dolby behaved as spoilt brat and said they would be no one if don't pay and adopt DV. 
has been years since and Samsung still beating any other TV manufacture in sales, and even made studios adopt the format. 

but I respect your opinion 😉

Dolby Vision has dynamic metadata with a depth of twelve bits whereas HDR10+ is only ten bits process, and almost every other TV platform supports Dolby Vision from studio to UHD HDR TV apart from Samsung hence the comment!

 

And it is hard to beat an OLED screen...

 

The format should be ditched the war has already been won and DV won it years ago... 😉

Re: HDR10+ Support

Samsung and have OLED, NO TV can use 12bit or even close to that, welcome to marketing. 

the world should never win to one thing, options are always better than forced to one thing. 

Again, happy you love your DV - I have a Sony OLED A95k and prefer my Samsung S95C, but hey, just my preference 😜

No, not really.  Domestic video would never have been so widely adopted (and hence cheap) if the format war hadn't come up with a definitive winner and no subsequent 'choice' because that creates a single global mass market and so generates extremely effective competition between manufacturers trying to get a share of it.  Likewise DVD, Blu-ray, 35mm film, 'floppy' disks, 7" vinyl singles, mains electricity...

Re: HDR10+ Support

It's online world now - no more physical demand for formats. 

I'm not here to say A or B is better, that's not my goal. 

Sky is part of Comcast, the mother company adopted the format, I just want to understand if Sky is having it for OnDemand and Apps, that's all. 

Google Chromast supports it, Amazon Fire TV supports it, Apple TV supports it, even Roku supports the format. 

Sky can we have an update? Thanks 😊

With 20th Century Fox now on the DV with Disney and Google rumours of supporting Dolby Vision, it is over for HDR10+ and is an extra stage for downgrading the picture quality from DV to HDR10/HDR10+ for studios. Everybody masters Dolby Vision even an iPhone!

 

It is only Samsung that is holding on to the format that nobody masters the original for these days, so an extra process for conversion and manpower to do so from DV to HDR10/HDR10+.

'Sky' typically never comments on such things here.

Re: HDR10+ Support

Nope not all TVs support dolby vision. Samsung TVs only support HDR10+ its qctually a lot better format in many ways. 99% of TVs that claim to have dolby vision cant even reach 1000nits so its pointless having dolby vision in the first place if HDR on the tv is practically non existant.
