Maybe that's how streaming/broadcasting box manufacturers have decided that's the way to do HDR? It sounds as though you really need 4K UHD BluRay. In a way it's like buying a Audi A4 and expecting it to be identical in every respect to the Porsche 911 that really pleased you or loved dearly. £5, £8, £10 iTunes films compared to £20-£40 4K BluRay discs and £630 for the Oppo player. In reality, the ATV and Oppo 4K BluRay player are very different and yet compliment each other beautifully. Rent the film at a seconds notice from iTunes and if you love it and want to own a copy, buy it on 4K UHD BluRay.I’m sorry but this video is not a good new at all for HDR10 only TV set owners.
What you are watching is a native Dolby Vision movie down converted on the fly in fake HDR10 by the Apple TV.
If you watch the complete video there is a comparison between the values used for the HDR10 layer on a native HDR10 UHD Blu-ray vs the values created by the on the fly conversion of the Apple TV.
The Apple TV is applying the same fixed set of values regardless of the movie you are watching.
This is completely faked !
Apple need to add a HDR10 logo on the iTunes Store for movies that are capable of true native HDR10 presentation.
I don’t want to buy HDR movies to watch it in a fake down converted HDR...
Well sadly, it seems that Apple are doing things their way. Certainly the SDR to HDR is bizarre. It totally seems that Apple are still learning from this process and it's very early days. I get the impression that ATV4K is thinking of the future and is aimed solely at OLED TVs - having backlight & contrast settings on 100% all of the time surely cannot be good for the longevity of LCD TV? Maybe they are learning. Don't waste your beautiful life worrying about what they are doing. Apple clearly don't listen. Just enjoy it for what it is and enjoy other things. Just my take on it and how I live. It's a dead product at the end of the day - it doesn't live, breathe, make your live amazing (it won't have a lasting effect on you) - don't let it consume you!This is not the problem here.
I don’t talk about the difference of quality between a UHD Blu-ray and a UHD stream from iTunes. Of course there is difference.
I’m talking about the fact that if you have a HDR10 TV set, Apple need to send the correct HDR10 metadata. Not a faked down conversion from a Dolby Vison feed.
The UHD Blu-ray in this video is only here to let us know what are the true values of the native HDR10 metadata vs what Apple is doing with the not wanted conversion.
Now, after replying to a different thread, Does Dolby Vision Content from iTunes play on my HDR10 TV?I’m talking about the fact that if you have a HDR10 TV set, Apple need to send the correct HDR10 metadata. Not a faked down conversion from a Dolby Vison feed.
Can’t say about netflix et al. But what I read from aTV spec (only DV profile 5) and DV level specs, I conclude (maybe falsely, would love to learn better), that a DV L5 movie needs to have HDR10 base layer.Have you watched the video? The guy is showing that this is not the case at all.
As for the uhd Blu-ray this is absolutely normal because HDR10 is part of the standard and have to be present at the minimum. Unfortunately this is not the case for streaming services.
The developer OSD is showing the incoming stream is Dolby Vison on both Apple TV regardless of the fact that one is set to Dolby Vision and the other to HDR10.I watched that YT video as well, and I still do not understand, where did the postulate, that aTV is intrinsically converting from DV into HDR10, come from? Based on what evidence?
We could only tell for sure, if we could see the metadata on incoming stream.
