Not massive, tiny difference esp. in dark imagery.
Absolutely massive, actually, to the point that Hollywood studios still aren't set up for a native 4K color pipeline because the delta in color gamut is so huge compared to 2K P3 theatrical colorspace and HD home video specs like rec709. This is why most current HDR passes are post processes.

You have no idea what you're talking about.
You sound like a hifi nerd who would spend 10k on a record player and another 10k on an amp trying to convince people it's worth the extra money. Fact is I don't see much difference between 2k and 4k. The difference is nowehere near as big as between sd and hd.

Lol. Me too. Along with the tinnitus (probably from all the PSB concerts without ear protection) I figure no amount of remastering is going to impress me.

VHS and cassette at full volume would probably be perfectly adequate for me.

I think the point here is that 2k vs 4K = some difference, non-HDR vs HDR = quite a lot of difference.

That’s certainly my experience.

But if you can’t see it then that’s cool as well!

The last proper standalone PSB DVD was in 2007. That's TEN YEARS AGO, a longer time period than between the first appearance of DVDs in the UK and then. Won't happen.

Apart from that, 4k blurays are still too expensive and cost 25-30 Euro. Thanks but no.

Your response only underlines that you don't know what you're talking about, because my post was discussing HDR. That's a completely separate issue. :lol:

I do have own 4k HDR tv set. No, it's not a separate issue. Still not much of a difference to me. But maybe you are one of those tech nerds.

It's a completely separate issue, because 4K refers to picture resolution and HDR refers to color gamut. It's like every post you make is an own goal. :clap:

Does BFI release their products in other regions too? I don't know why they would use the region 2 coding instead of making it region 0, especially for a product aimed at PSB fans, many of which are outside the UK/Europe and can't play region 2 discs.

Could be a rights issue, which is hell

The It Couldn't Happen Here bluray has that price tag too... €27.62 to be exact on amazon.co.uk including shipping.

A 4K UHD bluray would have been great but there is really no demand (I am able to play them and own a few blockbuster 4K bluray discs, but it's a niche within a niche product, even standard definition DVDs, a format that is almost 25 years old, still outsell blurays by far, and DVDs are much of a niche product as well nowadays). 4K UHD is great for music videos though, but in the bluray/DVD market music videos is a niche within a niche within a niche. Hardly any concert video releases anymore.

Definitely nerd. Enjoy all the fancy hdr colours, nerd. Meanwhile, normal people don't give a toss.
