Sony's current 'A1' flagship 4K model now uses an OLED screen now but at around $10K, it will remain on the 'wish list' for the time being...

I have a Panasonic HD Plasma TV, 500 Watts power consumption and 6 fans to cool it down, but the quality is unbeatable, like good old CRT. I'll stay with it until OLED prices come down to meet my budget.

Those old Plasmas are highly regarded and have only recently been replaced by OLED TVs as client monitors in Pro Grading rooms but as you probably know the old saying: "Plasma TVs are efficient electric radiators which also display pictures"

...for amateur usage (and even professional streaming applications) it makes no sense to use REC.709 (16.235).


except that Rec.709 is still a highly respected and much adhered to standard for pro colour facilities. BT.2020 is yet to become the defacto standard.

To illustrate what I mean saying as an amateur I wouldn’t invest time and money in order to work in REC.709:

I just downloaded a video trailer of a TV series to create a mashup with some shown transitions from the official streaming portal of one of the two major German broadcasters " ZDF ".

I've attached an OBS screen recording of Lightworks playback of this mashup. I didn't touch any color adjustments in OBS nor in Lightworks and the recording is dramatically compressed, but the RGB parade indicates clearly that the streaming material carries full scale sRGB and not limited REC.709.
