There seems to be some improvements made in my opinion.
While I don't really consider streaming video as serious viewing, the addition of various streaming options in Malaysia (legally) at UHD (albeit heavily compressed) resolution is a plus. When the industry moved from SD to HD, there was a dire need to show content on HD/Full HD to sell the displays that were FullHD, but content was slow or expensive. The adoption rate was slow and people held on to the CRTs as long as they good. Enticing them to upgrade was difficult, especially with content not being there for the vieiwing.
Now with Netflix/Amazon at our doorstep with high speed internet and both of them having a decent catalogue of content on UHD/HDR/Dolby Vision, things are looking better.
With the recent availability of software to be able to calibrate for Dolby Vision (via a change to the Golden Reference File) and HDR10 separately in different memories on the LG 2017 OLEDs it indicates to me that the manufacturers now understand whats needed for UHD calibration at last after multiple chances to get it right.
While, I prefer if the manufacturers give me more leeway in deciding how I want to roll off the highlights to account for lower output than is demanded by the video in play, I believe we are not far off that this gets built in at least for calibrators to implement on the higher end sets in the near future.
I hope to write more in the coming weeks after the set rakes in some hours.
