HDR on UHD discs - comparisons?

Postby Alister_Manson » 18 Mar 2021 22:56

At present, this site doesn't mention or factor the HDR on 4K UHD discs in the comparisons. It's a relatively important selling point for some, much like the "codec wars" of 1080p BD - something that's thankfully not an issue in 4K, but certain titles such as VFW have HDR on the German disc but none on the US one, and a large amount of UHD titles have HDR10 and Dolby Vision on some versions vs only HDR10 on others. Perhaps it's time to add a comparison field for this?

While not all our comparisons mention HDR. It is usually mentioned in the notes area when given.

There are though very few that are different in regards regions. In most cases it's due to different distributors, such as "Léon: The Professional" come to mind.

Due note though that if you have a player capable of playing Dolby Vision, it will simply use the HDR10/+, mapping to convert, and vice-versa.

As a fun additional note; if you have UltraHD player, but not a 4K TV, [such as I did, until this last December] Dolby Vision, will look vastly superior in comparison to HDR10/+, given HDR10 disc, when the HDR is off puts purple-ish highlights around white/clear edges.
