Yes, this is interesting, talking about being tied to 'chipset cycles' for DV. We know that DV can be implemented in software, because Sony have done it. OK, they've got half of the software in the UHD player, and the other half in their TV, but I guess the whole bang shoot could run in the TV if its processor had enough grunt. I would guess that, in a year or so, Panasonic will take another look at the DV take-up, and the viability of a software solution, and re-consider introducing it retrospectively - that is, if the technical possibilities take precedence over marketing ploy. Marketing might dictate that retrospective could dent new sales, and also they'd have trouble charging existing customers for a DV upgrade to cover their licensing costs.Panny talking DV tied to chipset
It depends on the film, max luminescence, max-CLL, TV type and HDR limitations. I've seen even "fake" DV work for certain films nicely for TVs with sub 1000 nit HDR which makes sense if you think about what DV is supposed to do. But one film in particular film look much better on a 1000+ nit HDR with DV.brighter, yes! better, that's debatable.
