HDR panels for VR


#1

I ve never seen anyone requesting such tech for VR, why is that?

I think it would be a great addition to immersion.


#2

Oh, it’s certainly been wished for. :7

Valve did one prototype where they sacrificed a pair of regular non-HDR panels, by overdriving them to get more light out of them. Apparently test users had a giggle out of feeling the heat radiating off them. :9

HDR is not brightness alone, it’s contrast.
People will complain that a panel (vive for instance) is too bright, but I doubt they ll ever complain that the sun is too bright.

Right now if I watch a vr180 video the sun is as bright as the clouds, not good.
