Scott Wilkinson

This week on HTG, Scott is having on Jim Hellman, an expert in high dynamic range cinema and how it's really making the movie image pop and will be a main focus in the standards of 4K and ultra high definition.

Scott says that HDR will change the way we see movies. But Leo believes that it could be much ado about nothing since people are generally happy with their HDTVs. Scott says that HDR has the promise to drive people back to the theaters, rather than wait to watch movies on their home theater system.

Leo says that's true and there's a bit of a communal nature to going to the movies. There's only 4 theaters in the country that have it now. Scott says that there will be a lot more by year's end and if you can find Tomorrowland showing at one that has laser illuminated Dolby Cinema, then Scott says it's worth it. It's the first film that didn't have to come down in its dynamic range to be handled by a projector.
