So, the wide viewing angle filter is probably tanking the color gamut performance somewhat. I suspect it is likely the off angle colour shift getting mixed in, or a spreader stretching the light. But VA like technology needs to be reengineered to do wide angle in the cell. Are they using the nanocell technology for the filter? It seems LG like.
For me the wide angle doesn't matter as much. Even if they had a system where all the color shifted light was concentrated and shot off the side at high angle where it was then dealt with, or not, that would be OK. Once you get past a 90 degree cone of excellent picture and color you are in good territory, 180 degree is not really needed, even on a computer table, it just looks trendy. My projector screen is like that, but its a waste of light. If OLED manufactures could do this for professional use, they could double their brightness, which means the Panasonic GZ2000 could afford to use wider color gamut primaries, making it good for the years old rec2020 standard. It makes me wonder if LG has incell technology to concentrate emitted light from hidden parts of the bulk oled material forwards. They must, they could not have missed that I hope, then techniques would improve brightness and reduce heating.
Very disappointed the industry is tanking colour in LCD, before selling us something likely even more expensive to give us only a bit more than what LCD dies, in say a latest best Sharp, but compared to their current LCD, over 1 step more DCI, maybe 4 steps or so rec2020, and with true HDR, the panels should really shine in shop. But not as much in color compared to an LCD done rightly. I've long had designs in mind that could increase black level, viewing angle, brightness and color in LCD, so close to 100% or beyond, rec2020, with high viewing angle, more descent HDR while maintaining the black level. You will notice that the HDR levels with descent black is around the same figure on panels as the Q7, brighter HDR doesn't maintain good black outside turning the back light down in non bright areas. If they could only get to 1000 nits with near oled like black, it would be alright. Combined with sonething like cheap bluphase LCD, it gives most cheap manufactures something to sell while printed oled drops in price. Just because they can print it cheap because there is no real competition, don't expect them to charge low prices for the sets. You might still look at $3000US for a while, $6000US for microled etc. The $1500 smaller versions will likely drop to $1000 eventually, putting pressure in sub $1000 set makers, with lower prices printed oled to eventually come. But it means controlled LCD technologies from big manufacturers might be under that just above their heads around $500+ Q7 like TV's only from specific manufacturers. You. An already see a bunch of cheap manufacturers selling outdated murky sets, but they really need to press into and beyond Q7 territory into the future to sell substantial units in this scenario. Even at $200 for a 65 inch screen the existing lowest quality screens would look like giant turkeys compared to the controlled technologies (but thrn again, manufacturers are so slack, they tend to license these technologies towards the end of their patent life where the license could be had cheap/ So, some of this stuff should he coming to manufacturers cheap in coming years).
