NOW HDR, was 8K Samsung TVs
>I think there’s a very simple solution for the problematic highlights in HDR. “Default White”.
In linear terms, this is basically 2-2.5 stops brighter than middle gray. Beyond that, you’re in HDR territory.
And below about 3-4 stops under middle gray, the same applies.
The material is still going to vary depending on the max nit value of the TV, the HDR processing (Dolby vs. HDR10 vs. HLG vs. whatever else catches on), but +2/-3 is already what we perceive by eye as matte white and matte black, so that’s the “safe zone.” That’s Rec 709 territory. That’s the meat. Beyond that is the seasoning.
