Steve,

If you think that you have found any issues with any company out there than you should take it up with them directly and in confidentiality and not post in public forums.
This is minimum professional conduct you should have and as Geoff has mentioned - no rumours - just facts. 
You have only a suspicion that there might be an issue and let Dolby respond to you, no need to post here.

For anyone else interested in learning about a different point of view than the one on this thread, I would suggest company that I use for all my colourimetry and monitor performance questions - Spectra Cal. They don't need to spam forums with their wisdom as we all know how good they are. It might explain why my monitors don't have problems Light Illusion is preaching about.
On the same note, if you think like me that monitor calibration is as boring as watching paint dry, I can recommend company I use in USA for calibration of my monitors - Abel Cine. They have made my life a pleasure when it comes to calibration at least.

For anybody else interested in what happens after painfully selecting HDR monitor, I will be back in Europe this Saturday in my most favorite city Amsterdam on AV festival, doing a talk on A-Z of HDR from the real world perspective. If you happen to be in Amsterdam pop by and and ask me a question during QandA session.

As has been proven each and every time, I never state anything that isn't fact.
As shown here, with the irrefutable information on the volumetric issues with the Panasonic WOLED.

I make sure any statement made is correct, before making it, rather than spout hype.

It is also very simple for anyone else to verify the issues with the Panasonic WOLEDs, as has been proven in this thread.
To attempt to argue the issue doesn't exist is rather a foolish thing to do in the face of such proof.
Spectracal have actually pointed out the same issue themselves, although without the easy to understand graphical proof.

And talking of Spectracal , it does seem we are are rather good at finding issues, as Spectracal have just publicly thanked us, and our users, for pointing out an error with their LUT calculation they had missed.

I will let Dolby speak for themselves, as and when they decide to release verification our findings.

We will soon be publishing the test we conduct when a post facility opts to be certified by Dolby. As I stated before Certification by Dolby is an option. It is not required to deliver Dolby Vision content. Testing monitors is part of this certification. We are working with Steve and others on the best methods for this test using the available tools like LightSpace. His feedback is always welcomed.
