I gave away my Q10 Pro to a friend, so will rely on community to see if I can keep that summary updated.

Both? There are three :

DolbyVision
HDR-10
HLG

DolbyVision and HDR-10 are both PQ-based and used for drama and movies. HLG is based on Log Gamma and is the most likely to be used by broadcasters (both for live and catch-up/on-demand)

For the time being, there are five functional HDR formats:
. (HEVC) HDR10
. (HEVC) Dolby Vision
. HEVC HLG HDR
. VP9-HLG YouTube HDR
. VP9-PQ YouTube HDR

HDR10, Dolby Vision and VP9-PQ use the SMPTE ST 2084 Perceptual Quantizer (PQ) transfer function.
HEVC HLG HDR and VP9-HLG use the Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) transfer function.


"HLG" is not "regional" because:

. VP9-HLG is one of the two YouTube HDR formats.

. HEVC HLG HDR is already operational in Japan:

It will be interesting to see what happens with the Android boxes as they update to Nougat as that will clear a lot of the issues people have with them

that is a shame. that means there will be no UHD 4K 3D either.

i am surprised given how many movies are still released in 3D and how many are in blu in 3D.


RE: Kodi Media Player Options with MVC/frame-packed 3D & HD Audio - Topken - 2017-01-05

TV OEMS basically killed 3D last year and yeah I was never that interested in it at all personally. I have only seen Avatar in IMAX 3d and thats been it besides Spykids 3d with the colored galsses and thus not really good 3d. Spykids 3D wasn't 3D for me becuase of my bad eyes. Avatar was a much better experience and I could see the little wisps around the tree around me while the stuff coming out of the screen with the colored glasses Never work for me at all. I don't even install the 3D driver for my nvidia cards to be honest.


RE: Kodi Media Player Options with MVC/frame-packed 3D & HD Audio - Caramba69 - 2017-01-05

I still like 3D watching on my Sony projector.


RE: Kodi Media Player Options with MVC/frame-packed 3D & HD Audio - movie78 - 2017-01-05

Call me when there no new release Blu-ray without 3D....
Don't believe the media hype about 3D is dead they just trying to sell 4K TV's and when that died down they will come back with 4K3D


RE: Kodi Media Player Options with MVC/frame-packed 3D & HD Audio - bdreams - 2017-01-05

4K is just to sell TV sets will die out eventually. If you look at what happen to 1080 p and network broadcast 4 k will suffer the same faith it's a joke how all these new formats are out but no true content are available except the overprice 4K uhd disc which is already out on blu-ray . 98 percent of the mass don't care about 4K are even going to buy these disc and if you can't get a true rip of these disc what's the sense.. just my 2 cents..


RE: Kodi Media Player Options with MVC/frame-packed 3D & HD Audio - hdmkv - 2017-01-05

Right ... masses may buy 4K TV's as prices are getting cheaper and cheaper, but I don't see them investing in UHD BD's or in premium 4K streaming.

Studios and manufacturers are to blame for 3D... those early exclusives, bundles, and poor promotional efforts.

I'm one of those that wont't be buying a UHD player. I just got a One S over the holidays and that's because the wife said we needed one for the extra bedroom for when the nephews come over, for $225, why not. Won't have an interest in viewing a UHD disc on it till they release the update that will enable the lossless audio bitstreaming.
