Have either of those displays been calibrated by a professional or at least by a competent person with proper equipment?I have two Sony XBR-55X930D 4K 3D televisions. My friend in New Jersey has an LG 65". He sees this problem as well, and he's an expert on color and various formats of film lab work. I'm not -- but I'm a knowledgeable film aficionado, more towards film directors and film history.
Does anyone know what's up? (And remember the Blu-rays look fine.) Maybe I can take a pic from my iphone and post it here? I know that wouldn't do it justice, but this is not imagination on my part.
I was curious, so I took a look and compared the 4K DV vs HDR10 vs Blu-ray on my LG 65" OLED using two Panasonic 820 UHD players and switching inputs. I don't see the saturation problem described with the blue sky in Ch. 5, but the Blu-ray does have a slightly different color balance/tint, and some colors at times are a bit more punchy on the Blu-ray (skin tones for example in Ch. 5 look better to me on the Blu-ray, and a bit more monochromatic on the 4K DV or HDR10). My system is calibrated, but outside of grayscale, there's not much one can do for DV or HDR. For Blu-ray, SDR, you can do a lot more calibrating. But overall the 4K looks a lot better, and perhaps is a better color representation overall.Have either of those displays been calibrated by a professional or at least by a competent person with proper equipment?
They probably spent hours looking for the f-stops .Video display calibration understanding and equipment is crucial. I remember a guy from another site who had vast photography experience. But he had little understand of video, video standards, format standards, meters, etc. and tried to apply his knowledge directly to video and you can only imagine the problems.
Today, I received my replacement disc. @Mike Frezon Has yours arrived yet?I called the toll-free number at Sony back on June 24th and spoke with the same extremely nice Nederlander who wrote Angelo's e-mail.
But no disc--or e-mail--yet for me.
I'm in no rush for it. Just reporting my experience.
