We now have 3 different Formats for improving Picture Quality. HDR 10 (High Dynamic Range 10), HLG (Hybrid Log- Gamma) & Dolby Vision.
Both HLG & HDR10 produce 10 bit Color, which means 1 Billion Colors. (8 bit color on normal TVs produce 16 Million Colors) Dolby Vision blows everybody off with 12 bit Color, which means 64 Billion Colors. The TV you are watching is the key here. If you have an OLED, then you will be able to appreciate the difference.
When it comes to Brightness, HLG & HDR10’s tops out at 4000 nits. (A measure of Brightness) Dolby Vision claims it will support up to 10,000 nits. The best TVs now top out at around 1000 nits.
Several of the new 2017 TV Models will support both Dolby Vision & HDR10. Also more & more TVs will support HLG.
