Sharp Returns to OLED TV Production?

The Japan Times reports a familiar name plans to make a return to TVs-- the Foxconn-owned Sharp is building large OLED panels for TVs in new production lines at its Japanese production plants

The report adds the company plans to spend $15 million on the plants in the City of Sakai and the town of Maki, and hopes to start operations in April-June 2018. The plants will mass-produce not only TV panels, but also small and medium-size OLEDs for laptop and smartphone use.

In addition, it will continue development of 8K LCD TVs.

Currently, LG Display is the only company building OLED panels suitable for consumer TV use. These are found in OLED 4K TVs from the likes of Sony and Panasonic, as well as LG itself. OLED panels are pricey to produce, and as such the panel category still has a fairly small share of the global TV market.

DreamScreen Kickstarts Smart TV Surround Lighting

DreamScreen Kickstarts Smart TV Surround Lighting

DreamScreen follows on its self-titled home theatre lighting product with an upgraded  kit claiming to offer "HD, 4K, DIY and a surround lighting feature."

The DreamScreen system places LED lights behind TVs and PC monitors able to react to the colour on the screen. The HD and 4K hubs use HDMI video and audio, with HDCP support, and turn TV shows, movies and games into an "immersive experience." The lighting reacts to on-screen colours at 60fps, retrofits to any size TV and connects to any device with an HDMI port.

The HD and 4K hubs allow up to 3 HDMI inputs, and feature CEC technology to allow users to easily toggle between viewing devices without missing on the lighting actions. Users can also customise their setup with several video and colour settings. Each hub supports two reels of FLEX LEDs to cover screens up to 130-inch in size, while the DIY option allows one to use own LEDs. An additional SideKick device adds small high brightness LEDs to further boost the surround reactive lighting.

Samsung and Amazon's HDR Standard

Samsung and Amazon's HDR Standard

Samsung and Amazon join forces to add yet another HDR standard in the video mix-- HDR10+, an option the two giants say is better than the rest through a free and open nature.

As the name might suggest, HDR10+ is similar to the current HDR10 standard, but it does have a few differences. The chief addition is Dynamic Tone Mapping, a means for HDR-capable TVs to adjust brightness on a scene-by-scene or even frame-by-frame basis, producing "images that are much closer to the director's intent."

Dolby Vision already has such a dynamic metadata setup, unlike HDR10 which is stuck with static metadata. One has to point out Dolby Vision supports HDMI 1.4a and upwards, while HDR10 requires HDMI 2.0, but HDR10+ does not require TV makers to pay licensing fees.
