Dolby Vision already features in more than 300 Blu-ray movies; HDR10 + only in 7
HDR10 and HDR10 +, have the support of big companies like 20th Fox Centry, Amazon, Panasonic, Samsung, Universal or Warner Bros. HDR10 +, announced more than a year ago, differs mainly from HDR10 in that it is compatible with dynamic metadata, so that each scene or each image can be adjusted to light and colors correct instead of applying a single profile to the entire movie. .
However, after that date, only seven movies support HDR10 +, among which we find Bad weather at El Royale, Bohemian Rhapsody, Alien and Viudas, besides the documentary A beautiful planet. Heise, from the German half, points out that the difference in quality between the two standards is imperceptible despite these dynamic metadata. In addition, only TVs Samsung and Panasonic support HDR10 + for the moment, and Panasonic will accept Dolby Vision in the future. Therefore, Samsung will be the only one to continue to bet on the open format, where it seems that the closed format is more and more imposing.
In addition, the vast majority of film companies offer films with Dolby Vision and even 20th Century Fox released its first film in Dolby Vision: "Alita: Battle Angel". The company was the only one refusing to support Dolby Vision, but it finally did, although it also includes the HDR10 + and HDR10 video format in Blu-ray format, being the seventh film with this one. this and the first film including the three standards at once. This contrasts with Dolby Vision, which currently uses more than 300 Blu-ray, 100 series and 30 documentary films.
HDR10 + only offers differences in a movie
Dolby Vision is better than HDR10 + while offering more color depthand already includes the dynamic metadata by default. However, it is not open and requires a license, quite the opposite of HDR10, so you have to pay Dolby for each movie for a difference in quality that very few users will be able to discern.
In addition, German media do not, they point out that several analysts they could not find the difference in quality between HDR10 and HDR10 + in all available movies, except in Alita: Battle Angel, where they claim to have found differences. Therefore, this does not seem to be a standard problem, but a producer's own problem and how to implement the dynamic metadata theme. This film will be released on August 1st.
From now on, Universal Pictures will re-publish "some" of its HDR10 films to HDR10 +, including A gas, Kung Fu Panda and Jurassic World, so that the available content will increase. Warner Bros. will also publish more titles. For streaming platforms, Amazon Prime Video supports HDR10, HDR10 +, and Dolby Vision movies (the HDR type appears at the bottom depending on the content), while Netflix "only" supports Dolby Vision and HDR10.
