Is the P6K Pro display HDR or high bright, or both?

PostTue Feb 23, 2021 2:13 pm

The marketing copy regarding the new 1500nit display is kind of vague. It says HDR, but it also talks about being high bright for outdoor use. These are, of course, two different ways of displaying an image.

- If the internal display does indeed display an actual HDR image, how does this impact the use of LUTs?
- if the internal display does indeed display an actual HDR image, what flavor? PQ, HLG, something else?
- Are there any user controls for how the brightness is used? (Atomos monitors let you choose.)
- I don't think the P4K or 6K can output an HDR flag over HDMI. Has this changed?

Is the screen 10bit colour? That might be helpful.

Good question. I asked a BMD employee these questions, and they replied that they are awaiting hard details. if I get a response before someone else in the know posts, I'll share.

This is kinda a big deal to me, because I don't much need high bright for outdoor shooting, but I wouldn't turn up my nose at being able to rough monitor an HDR picture on set without shuttling media to Resolve.

I'd be very interested to know as well!
