Before anybody gets too excited at the mention of Dolby Vision, let me just clarify that SMPTE 2084 is the standard also commonly known as "HDR 10". To be honest, I'm not sure why we have both "HDR" and "SMPTE 2084" values on that output, but I suspect that the "HDR" one is seldom if ever actually used. It might be a leftover from early work on our HDR support, but I will inquire.

When the Kaleidescape system reports to a control system what the movie’s meta data is, then the control system will “know” to set scaler/display to the “right” calibrated preset.

Having three display meta data tags will allow for the ultimate customization.

Too cool!

I've pinged Alan Chow to see if he can/will update the Control4 driver to take advantage of this. It was the missing link in my theater becoming fully automated. Go K!

I posted over in the enhancement request area, but they next need to add GET_AUDIO so control systems can automatically switch audio feeds depending on source signal (e.g. Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, etc.). Not all audio systems can do this (just like not all projectors switch profiles when receiving HDR). Would really be useful! SJ

Can you cite an example of an audio system that is not able to detect the audio format being sent over HDMI? I'm not aware of any.

All audio systems can detect an audio signal/format, but you can still decide what post processing option you want to apply. Example, if my system receives a DD 5.1 signal, I have several options to choose. DD 5.1, DD 7.1, Dolby Upmixer to 7.2.4.... If I also receive a Dolby Atmos signal, I can turn off post processing all together. Same with DTS. If I received a DTS Signal, I can use 5.1, 7.1 or DTS Neural X. Maybe unique to my setup which is a Mcintosh MX-160. But my control system could change post processing automatically to my defaults if it received this information from my Strato. Thanks. SJ

I have a MX-160 and I change my post processing based on audio just like you describe. I do currently capture the “Audio Type In” in my control system and have thought about having the control system change the post processing based on this.

I haven’t tried to do this yet but it seems like it should be doable depending on your control system.

Yeah, I could probably do it with the MX160 info, but would be super easy if the Strato would output the event like they do with video. My control system changes several configurations if the movie is HDR vs SDR and I could use the same code/logic for audio.... SJ

Yes, I could see this being helpful.
