Scott says that the consumer industry has decided not to go all in on OLED, rather they will continue to focus on LCD TVs. LCDs are getting better, even approaching OLED. Sony's Z series is one such series. Scott says that the backlight in the Z series has independent LED backlights that get dimmed separately for precision control. Scott says that they are the brightest on the market and the HDR footage he's seen is remarkable, with incredible detail at extreme ends of the dynamic range. But they aren't cheap. They're around $8,000 to 10,000 for up to 65".

Scott saw Star Trek Beyond in Dolby Vision and he said it was visually stunning, but the story is very weak. An action movie with as many fight scenes as possible. But for the eye candy and sound, it's fantastic in Dolby Vision and everyone should see it that way if they can.
