Do they still offer anti-moire coating? I spoke to Stewart a year ago that showed a Siliconcore led module behind an anti-moiré screen by Stewart. I asked why the collaboration, as Siliconcore was the first to offer/promote its anti-moiré coated LED displays. Anti-Moiré is important in TV studio's/sets.

There is no benefit in RGB control, and associated color control, and contrast control? So the control of near black and the dynamic range above that in common cathode? How was the LISA COB?

In the previous ISE demo's the gridpattern was not this visible. Of course there was plenty of ambient light and a bright LED display.

Well since the wall is under 300 almost half of Camelia and samsung has taken the lead in dialing out the module visibility, they went from poor to superb in 2 months time with the outside the booth 2.4 panels which were nearly seamless on huge swaths of screen. On the led walls Samsung will eat some of SC's lunch  is the sad reality.  But i love what I saw at Silicon Core and are wonderful supercompetent people so i hope there is a power consumption sensitive market for them to flourish in but for a home TV there is no payback in power cost savings.

Sony Announces New Premium OLED and LED 4K HDR TVs with Improved Picture Quality and Enhanced User Experience
New A8F BRAVIA® OLED 4K HDR TV series and X900F 4K HDR TV series incorporate a powerful mix of Sony picture and processing technologies with new Dolby Vision support
         
Sony’s new A8F OLED TV series incorporates Sony’s unique 4K HDR picture Processor X1™ Extreme and Acoustic Surface™ technology.   The new premium X900F 4K HDR TV series is available in 85” Class, 75’’ Class, 65’’ Class, 55’’ Class and 49’’ Class, giving consumers more choices. Sony’s new A8F OLED TV series incorporates Sony’s unique 4K HDR picture Processor X1 Extreme and Acoustic Surface technology.The new premium X900F 4K HDR TV series is available in 85” Class, 75’’ Class, 65’’ Class, 55’’ Class and 49’’ Class, giving consumers more choices.Sony.

Sony Electronics announced two new and expanded 4K HDR television series designed to deliver enhanced color, contrast and clarity. The X900F series and A8F BRAVIA OLED series of Sony TVs make the best use of 4K HDR (High Dynamic Range) content and improves SD and HD content to near 4K HDR quality with the combination of their unique picture processor and panel control technologies.

"Our OLED TVs have been extremely well received by bringing exceptional picture and sound quality together and the X900E has been amongst our most popular LED TVs," said Mike Fasulo, President and COO of Sony Electronics, North America. "Building on the great successes of the X900 and OLED TV series, we are further expanding the choices for consumers by introducing the new X900F LED and A8F OLED TV models."

More OLED Options with the New A8F Series
In 2017, Sony introduced the A1E, our first large screen BRAVIA OLED 4K HDR TV, offering customers even more premium options when purchasing a TV. The new A8F series builds upon the success of the A1E by incorporating Sony's unique 4K HDR picture Processor X1™ Extreme and Acoustic Surface™ technology, to provide superior picture quality and awe-inspiring sound.

The A8F series features a more traditional TV design with the enriched visual experience of unprecedented black levels, rich colors and wide viewing angles thanks to OLED's over eight million self-illuminating pixels. The X1 Extreme precisely controls the tremendous number of pixels and extends the capability of OLED to deliver an exquisite 4K HDR picture. Unlike conventional LED where the sound emanates from the bottom or sides, the A8F enables a fusion of image and sound, with voices appearing to come directly from the characters' mouths and explosions directly from the action on the screen. Together with OLED's exceptionally wide viewing angle, the A8F series offers unmatched visual and aural experience regardless of the viewing position.

Larger LED Sizes with the Expanded X900F Series
In order to meet customer demand for larger screen sizes, Sony is expanding the X900F series. The new premium X900F 4K HDR TV series is available in 85" Class, 75'' Class, 65'' Class, 55'' Class and 49'' Class. Featured with the X1 Extreme processor, the X900F produces stunning picture quality and provides a wider selection for customers who are looking for bigger, premium 4K HDR TVs.

As screen sizes get larger, the industry has struggled to manage blur in fast moving scenes. The X900F series resolves this issue by using a new technology, X-Motion Clarity™, to keep fast action images smooth and life like. The new X-Motion Clarity technology utilizes Sony's proprietary direct LED panel local dimming algorithm to control the luminance and optimize its duration. Therefore, pictures are clear and smooth with virtually no loss in brightness.

Added Technologies for an Immersive Experience
Dolby Vision is supported on the A8F and X900F series as well as several 2017 Sony models that were announced last year. Dolby's deep expertise in bringing advanced technologies from the cinema to the home and on the go, has led to distinct features that enable Dolby Vision to deliver extraordinary viewing experiences to consumers on Sony TVs.

To bring your sound to the next level, the X900F series is designed perfectly to match Sony's new Dolby Atmos® sound bar, the HT-X9000F. The fusion of Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos transforms your home into an entertainment powerhouse whether experienced via OTT streaming or on 4K UHD Blu-ray disc via your Dolby Vision capable Sony UBP-X700 4K UHD Blu-ray player.

To fully integrate into the smart home, Sony's 2018 Android TVs have Google Assistant built-in, which makes it incredibly easy to discover and access content, as well as control other smart home devices through a Sony TV. The Google Assistant on Sony TV works just by pushing the microphone button on the remote and using your voice to ask a question or say a command. This allows users to seamlessly playback content, search for content, play music, stream photos, control their TV, control their smart home devices and find general information (e.g. weather, directions, fast facts, etc.) all through their Sony TV. Furthermore, Sony's Android TV works with popular smart speakers such as Sony's own LF-S50G, Google Home or Amazon Alexa.

Pricing and availability of all models to be announced. The X900F and A8F BRAVIA OLED series will be on-sale at Amazon, BestBuy and other authorized dealers nationwide.

Video Walls / Re: Nice Pic of Samsung 150"
« Last post by donaldk on Tue January 16, 2018, 06:01:22 AM »
At IBC Dolby Exec Pat Griffin said that conversion was effortless and errorfree. Metadata in production also no longer an issue as Dolby analyses image at the output and generates metadata that way. If ever lost just regenerate the metadata. I.e, no need to foregor Dolby Vision for HLG due to complexity.

I also saw an set top box that converted everything to HDR10 for the display. All kinds of interoperability work is going on behind the scenes at Operators likeDutch KPN, and vendors like Huawei.

Peter, it is extremely clear on the top picture of the curved display showing the cloudy sky. It even shows a brightness/color divide between the front and back half.I doubt the difference is due to viewing angle as those are fairly similar. When Silicon Core introduced its 1.5 at ISE, the executive told me indeed that's a million dollar TV. And We only sell trough integrators, dealers. I.e. no direct buy discount at the time.

Video Walls / Dolby Vision? HDR10+? Dolby makes the case that both can coexist

Dolby Vision? HDR10+? Dolby makes the case that both can coexist
By Nick Pino 4 days ago Television 

We chat with Dolby's SVP of Consumer Entertainment at CES 2018
 
 
 
 
The term ‘format war’ can be exciting to use - it denotes some sort of competition between some of the leading tech companies in the world. But it can also carry some … expectations with it, too.

When reporters have covered HDR10+ and compared it against the existing dynamic metadata-rich HDR format, Dolby Vision, it’s always been as a competition - that one format will win and one will lose.

And yet, according to Dolby Laboratories’ Senior Vice President of Consumer Entertainment, Giles Baker, it doesn’t necessarily have to be that way.

In an interview with TechRadar, Baker mused about a future in which both systems coexist. Granted, he believes Dolby provides a better end-to-end solution for HDR mastering and delivery, but that doesn’t mean he thinks HDR10+ doesn’t have its merits. It’s just … different.



Dolby Vision and HDR10+: the pros and the cons
As you might have read elsewhere on the site, Dolby Vision and HDR10+ are the next step in the evolution in high dynamic range (HDR) - a video display technology that uses metadata to drastically increase brightness, color saturation and contrast.

HDR, the universal standard set by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), is governed by something called static metadata - i.e. data that doesn’t change from scene-to-scene. It’s a set range that color, brightness and contrast need to stay within for the entirety of the movie or TV show.

What Dolby Vision and HDR10+ both do is use dynamic metadata to change those attributes on a moment-to-moment basis. This means that scenes can be more dynamic with one scene reaching peak black levels of the TV, with the next doing the same for brightness.

The difference between them, and the point Baker wants to make abundantly clear, is that, for Dolby Vision, all of that metadata is created by hand by colorists and editors at the movie studio. HDR10+’s metadata, meanwhile, is produced by an upscaling algorithm. This algorithm-based mode for content generation takes a lot of work off the editors and reduces time in development, which, Baker admitted, he could understand that being seen as a positive trait.



Meet the Panasonic DP-UB820, the first UHD Blu-ray player to support both Dolby Vision and HDR10+.

“But HDR10+ and Dolby Vision can coexist,” Baker says, pointing to Panasonic’s recent announcement of the first HDR10+ Blu-ray player to simultaneously support Dolby Vision, the Panasonic UB820. “We don’t see any reason that discs [and players] can’t have both.”

The sentiment is a nice one: There doesn’t need to be a winner and a loser here - we should all just enjoy better-looking content in whichever format directors and creators choose to use.

Is it possible that five years from now we’ll all own discs with both Dolby Vision and HDR10+ and players and TVs capable of displaying both formats? It’s certainly possible.
