News - Dolby Vision update rolling out for Denon AVRs

Looks like the promised Dolby Vision HDR update for 2017 Denon AVRs has started rolling out. At least for the AVR-X3300W. Will have to check the AVR-X4300H in a bit.

News - mid-2017 HDR primer @ flatpanelshd

4K is great, especially if you have a large display, but it's not nearly as interesting as HDR. If you're in the market for a new TV, or just want to stay updated on what's going on with the technology this write up is a great place to learn more.

News - Epson announces Home Cinema 4000 HDR "4K Enhancement Technology" projector

If you really want a 4K projector, but can't quite stomach the current prices. The Epson 4000 might be just the thing. It's a 1080p projector that supports HDR10 (sadly not Dolby Vison) and 4K input, then downscales to the native resolution. Which should provide a superior image than standard 1080p sources. The best part is of course the price - $2,200.

News - Netflix releases 4K HDR sample file

I have a reasonably good sized collection of sample/test clips that I use when testing kit. On the odd chance that you also horde these sorts of files, you'll be interested in a 4K HDR sample that Netflix just released.

News - HDR Roku on the horizon

As is typical for this sort of news, Zatz Not Funny! has the skinny on a new crop of Rokus queuing for release. While I've lost most of my love for our Roku 2 since testing started on the NIVIDA Shield, I think it remains the best general purpose media streamer for most people - and the price should be just right. The new models look like nice/worthy upgrades from the current offerings, but I do have to say that it's abominable that Roku is only supporting HDR on the top-end "Ultra" model, even though 4K will flow down to some of the lessor devices. Shameful.

News - Epson Announces two LCD projectors with 4K UHD signal input & HDR

You would be forgiven for thinking that this pair of ~$3k LCD projectors support 4K, and they do, sort of... It's not spelled out explicitly in the PR (aside from the "signal input" bit), but these are really just 1080p, that accept a 4K input and downscale it. HDR compatiblity is a plus, but I didn't see which formats will work on a quick scan through the specs. If you know, please spill in the comments.

News - LG E6 OLED reviewed at HDTVtest

LG's OLED display continue to review very well, with some improvements from previous years. It's actually this reasonably rapid improvement that makes me hesitate the most when it comes to picking up an OLED display.

News - AVSForum compiles list of HDR 4K displays

HDR is arguablly the best thing about 4K, and probably the best thing to happen to consumer displays in a long time. Figuring out what a TV's capabilities are, and therefore which ones should be elminated from consideration, can be daunting. AVSForum to the resue Smile.

I know I keep banging on about HDR, and I'm sorry (not sorry). If you want a more detailed primer on why it matters, and how it works, this is a great guide from VMI.
