Is HDR10 to Dolby Vision update worth it

Hi all,

I have a Panasonic GX1500 and a Panasonic UB420 4K Blu Ray Player. I just wanted to know if the leap in picture quality from HDR10 to Dolby Vision is worth me updating my 4K player.

Thanks,


Christian

I think that HDR10 gives a better overall picture, because the light levels do not continually change, something I find quite annoying with DV. In any event, to my eyes, the differences are minimal.

That is not something I've ever seen in watching over 125 DV UHDs. Are you saying you get fluctuating light levels within the same scene? Any UHDs in particular? What TV?

My OLED doesn't have DV. You don't miss what you don't have and I won't be changing the TV until the five year warranty expires. A lot can depend on the quality of your TV as much as the player you are going to use for DV.

I do see some fluctuating levels when watching DV content on Netflix with DV content. Not so much watching DV discs, as I recall. My TV is a non-OLED LG.

You need right TV for it but once you have it is well worth it. 4k could not exist at all for me but HDR is a game changer.

I've always thought DV was overrated, HDR10 is fine.

HDR is static metadata so it doesn't adjust on a scene by scene basis...Dolby vision does.I much prefer dolby vision personally.But again it depends on the tv...im using a oled and dolby vision seems to work better on oled.
