What is the coverage of the DCI-P3 color gamut?

Asked by: anquietas
Regrettably, we do not have any specifications for what the coverage of DCI-P3 color gamut the LG SUPER UHD 4K HDR Smart LED TV w/ Nano Cell™ Display - 65" Class (64.5" Diag), Model # 65SJ8500 is. Currently, no TV can display all of the DCI P3 or Rec. 2020 colorspace. As a result, they have to either clip colors which lie outside of their capabilities or compress the colors to fit them into the display limitations (or some combination of these two) in a process called tone mapping. There is no standard for calibrating to these wider color spaces because there is no reference of what a display should do and how this tone mapping should be performed. There are some sites that are beginning to test how much of the DCI-P3 and the Rec.2020 color volume TVs can cover, but currently, we do not have any specifications on that...^IFV

Shopping for LG 8500 series for its 3D support, wouldn't buy in this price range and orphan my collection. Is this omitted??

Asked by: RobPalmBeach
Neither the LG SUPER UHD 4K HDR Smart LED TV - 65" Class (64.5" Diag), Model # 65SJ8500 nor any of the 2017 LG TV lineup will feature 3D. LG was one of the last manufactures to have 3D in their 2016 lineup and other manufactures discontinued it in 2015. https://www.cnet.com/news/shambling-corpse-of-3d-tv-finally-falls-down-dead/ http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2017/01/27/3d-tv-is-officially-dead-but-band-fanatics-wont-let-go.html http://www.businessinsider.com/3d-tv-is-dead-2017-1...^IFV
