Oh, please, let it be relessed. To me rec2020 and HDR are to musts to check for work. Professional colorist businesses ussually only use the LG OLED at all as a client screen, to show clients, and for set rec709 work etc. So viewing and checking, the 900 offers an edge, but not enough. A surrounding black.might suffer, but this panel can push higher with correct color rendering of detail, high.kesns something (if you can ignore the bleed). As long as you can set it to do HDR at 540-740, that's acceptable fory purposes. The issue is, is the bleed that bad at 540 etc?
Now the VIZIO and the Hisense or TLC I would not be surprised if it was the same panel etc. Remember, the Chinese wanted to do the fiddly THX certification, which might have been an issue, but VIZIO wouldn't face such an issue.
I literally say, standing in front of a 900 in the right mode literally makes me feel good compared to other LCD TV's. The luminance contrast and color off rolling toning is fantastic (better if 100% rec2100) and the brightness must be good for 3D content. I saw velarian and the city of a thousand planets today, and the cruddy dim likely P3 3D projection really diminished a great movie. Oh, if so could have seen it on a bigger laser screen.
A dual shutter 90%+ rec2020 900 would be great. Rather than over 3000:1 contrast you might get a real 1 million to one. I'd have to be in a pitch black room with seating stars to be bothered, and stars are not meant to be that bright. Actually, apart from subtitles, which I'm not concerned about too much) the solution is a mode that pre compresses bright high contrast image elements against large low light areas down so bleed through is reduced or eliminated. Calculations could be done before each frame is displayed. The reality is the eye is going get plenty brightness from such a scheeme against black anyway, and is going to loose detail top or bottom if too bright. Doing so e calculation, you can probably calculate level of acceptable fald bleed near invisibility in the fald zone near an bright area to tweek the image for more brightness before it gets too noticeable. With such a scheeme you can choose to make it unoticable or bleed through not happen at all in settings. So, even the 900 could be further twerked for increased performance by software update.
Rasmus, the 900, what sort of backlight precisely do they use, was it the phosphor coated led? I have forgotten precisely what I read.
Btw: do how far away are the IMAX headquarters from where you are?
