If Technicolor is proposing it to SMPTE that would mean they are hoping to make it a standard. I was just a bit surprised that Technicolor didn't make a HEVC proposal though I guess they have no...

Sony made a document on bit depth called 12-bit pictures in a 10-bit world (https://wikileaks.org/sony/docs/05/docs/Chris/12%20bit%20playback%20v4.pptx.pdf). 10-bit HDR is dithered to avoid banding...

If they were to encode 1080p as 4K 4:2:0 than it could effectively be called 1080p 4:4:4. Just a guess for how they could support more than 4:2:0 without increasing the cost of the HEVC decoder.

VP9 allows for 10-bit, 12-bit, 4:2:2, 4:4:4, and the Rec. 2020 color space. I don't know if/when those features will be seen on YouTube but VP9 can do it.

They are only looking at 10-bit video which is disappointing since the easiest way to improve HDR is to use 12-bit video. Also besides sounding short sighted it seems a bit late since any new profile...

I think OLED has great potential when it comes to video quality but lifespan is an issue for OLED. Without some huge improvement in OLED lifespan I think that HDR could be a big problem for OLED.
