HDR standards: Competitive tempo picks up in 2018

For content distributors, the decision-making process goes like this, said Brett Sappington, senior research director at Parks Associates.

“Typically, device makers support multiple formats out of fear that they will miss the ‘right’ format that ultimately wins out,” Sappington said. “So [TV] manufacturers are the first line to pare the least popular formats.”

Next in line are content distributors that “want to support a small number of formats due to the cost and effort in reformatting files for delivery,” he said. “But like CE makers, they don’t want to invest in less popular formats, so distributors will work with content producers to figure out which formats to support.”
