    Press Release Studios and Manufacturers announce HDR10+ Technology

    TBH, I was in the same boat as I didn't expect to upgrade until this year or next. However, with the industry eliminating 3-D capable panels, I had to upgrade last January.

    I don't agree from my perspective and 3-D requirements, it was the best decision I made in about ten years.

    It was for some OLEDs like mine, but they took it away for all. Also, my OLED can do HDR and Dolby Vision.

    I remembered it because it cost me a bunch of money. I was one of the first 50,000 people to buy a DVD player. That very expensive Sony player that first came out on the DVD market in 1997, was non-progressive. My first progressive player was a Toshiba that came out 6-9 months or so later...

    Right, even DVD rollout had its issues like non-progressive players and then progressive players. Pan & Scan and non-anamorphic wide screen video presentations.

    Ron, I will say that I think the industry has done a disservice to their consumer base by not releasing 4K initially with both HDR and Dolby Vision formats. However, I do have difficulty telling them to stop perfecting those formats with more advanced versions. With that said and back to...

    I'm in agreement with those points too.

    I'm with you there as I stated in my previous post to this one. Furthermore, that is a question that needs to be answer for all concern.

    As somebody that spent almost 40 years in manufacturing management that's not going to happen as competitors are going to compete and continue to out advance the other guy. As to your other point about retirement, I'm already to that point. I won't be upgrading my equipment again until the...

    So do we expect the industry to stop releasing advances as they developed them or to not develop them at all?

    There is no such thing as future-proof when it comes to home theater equipment.

    However, to somewhat paraphrase Hyman Roth, home theater is the hobby we chosen and it's been this way ever since it began in earnest back in 1980's. I do agree with you about the roll out, it's been handled very badly by the industry including the content providers.

    It's not strange at all to me as HDR10+ is a normal progression in order to match Dolby Vision.

    I'd spent a boatload of monies in 2017 upgrading my home theater and I'm a very happy camper despite this HDR announcement.

    I don't understand the consternation expressed in this thread. Technology advances have always been present and will continue to be developed in the future. Any technology once introduced to the public is bound to be obsolete, it's only a matter of time. If you have equipment that can't...
