Yes the Dolby name has a lot of credibility, just like DTS for sound. So Dolby Vision adoption ramped up quite quickly with TV manufacturers, Chromecast, Apple TV etc.The "Dolby" name carries a lot of weight even with everyday consumers which is one of the reasons for its success.
I just bought my first 4K HDR OLED TV and made sure it supported DV. Didn't even know about DHR10+ until reading on here (I'm not a TV Tech nerd). I suspect Samsung will have to add DV or they will have issues selling TV's eventually unless all content starts to come with DV & HDR10+ support (both physical & streamed).
Its also a biggie "Netflix" supporting DV for everyday consumers.
Got to agree with you there! I think saying "so" gives their brain a bit of time to get into gear and decide what's going to be said. It's made even more annoying if it's combined with "up speak" where the tone rises towards the end, like it's a question. As for the aitch pronunciation, it's wrong but in very common use. As we all know, that means it will become an accepted variation. Oh well.Good interview but why with almost every reply to Steve's questions does Mr Auld begin with the word... so... what gives it's quite common now but what's the point. It's just as bad as a large proportion of the younger generation now pronouncing the letter "H" as hatech. Is this how they are taught to pronounce the word at school now, or is it just me from the older days?
So does Mass Effect Andromeda on PC but I've not tried moving my gaming PC downstairs to try it yet. Its only got a single GTX 980Ti so only likely get 30fps with Ultra at 4K. PS4 Pro with Uncharted4/Zero Dawn looks amazing with HDR on the LG.Battlefield 1 on PC supports DV, but I guess only DV compatible hardware and screens can display it.
We did ask Dolby if they plan to add Vision to projectors but they said they had no plans at the moment, which is a shame. Projectors would definitely benefit from dynamic metadata.Any update on implementation in projectors, don’t want to invest now in 4K projector and it be implemented 6 months later in next range.
I do not see the justification for this. Does changing the OLED level stop them from doing it for TVs? No - so what makes projectors such a problem?We did ask Dolby if they plan to add Vision to projectors but they said they had no plans at the moment, which is a shame.

No - I think what will happen is that Samsung will start sticking HDR10+ into anything that can possibly justify it include barely HDR capable TVs. A few years down the road they will then claim that HDR10+ is the dominant format in terms of sold devices, despite that the reality will be a massive market share of barely HDR capable TVs (global dimming maybe, marginal WCG). The reality will probably be that their market share of truly HDR capable TVs is nothing to write home about, but none the less, they will use that to force the hand of content makers who still seem to stalling an dithering at the moment.
