HDR10+ will be coming to more TVs, as the technology group behind the dynamic format has opened the license to companies other than Samsung and Panasonic, which are already selling certified displays. HDR10+ offers scene-by-scene HDR mastering, but unlike Dolby Vision, features 10-bit color rather than 12-bit color.

“The new HDR10+ licensing and certification program represents a technological step forward for next generation displays,” said Danny Kaye, EVP, 20th Century Fox and Managing Director, Fox Innovation Lab. “HDR10+ improves the viewing experience for all audiences by delivering higher picture quality to a wider range of affordable TVs and devices.”

I'm glad that presently all media seems to be forward/backwards compatible. Nice too this is gaining traction quickly since its a royalty free format. Great thing to couple with free-sync/VRR. My only recommendation for anyone buying soon is do the homework regarding manufacturer updates. Some companies are sending updates to upgrade certain present models to 10+ and some aren't.

Is this going to be the one that matters for desktop/everything use or just the newest games again?

For PC gaming, it's still a crap shoot in the dark. For the moment this is more of movie/tv thing and perhaps consoles kind of thing since it mainly involves t.v.'s.

We don't need more HDR standards. We need better display technology. Real, true HDR displays. LCD technology is still stuck in the past and built off of the poor foundation they exist upon.

LCD's can't get dark enough, OLED's can't get bright enough...

Enter Micro-LED.. saves the day.
Current MicroLED panels in production can still only hit around 2000 nit peak brightness. Much better than OLED, but we still have a long way to go to get true Dolby Vision support in consumer displays.

TV manufacturers need to stop advertising their crappy low end TVs as HDR. A lot make almost no difference with it on or off.

That's why VESA created DisplayHDR as a certification, but it's still not a requirement. It at least allows you to know that if a TV says HDR1000 then it has been tested and certified as such. The truth is though that most consumers most likely don't care.

The thing people care most about is price and size.
