As per the title really.


No TVs coming our appear to support both. LG and Sony appear to be backing Dolby Vision, where Samsung and Panasonic are betting on HDR10+.


I purchased a 4K TV recently without even realising these were different things so, right or wrong, I have found myself hoping Dolby Vision is the HDR standard of the future!


Do you guys think we're looking at the early stages of a format ware (a la Blu-Ray and HD-DVD)?

The "format war" won't be any different to the existing Dolby Vision vs HDR one or the much older AC3 vs DTS one. You'll likely just end up with hardware supporting both going forward.

Dolby Vision vs standard HDR isn’t really a thing though. Dolby Vision is backwards compatible with standard HDR, so they aren’t competing.

HDR10+, on the other hand, was devised as an alternative to Dolby Vision (which has been around longer).

If most of our UHD is supplied via streaming maybe the both versions will be supported by streaming services.


So shouldnt be as big an issue of when source is physical such as blue ray, vhs etc??
