    Umm, I'm ignorant here, what does this mean?
    The OPPO 103 and 103D have HDMI inputs as well as outputs. You can connect other video sources to them and run them through OPPO's video processor for deinterlacing, scaling and picture controls. This appears to do the same.

    This player appears to be going thru the licensing process for Dolby Vision. As it is BT. 2020 capable this makes sense.

    Both Universal and Lionsgate have promised UHD-BDs with Dolby Vision. It would be nice to have a player available to play them.

    Dolby Vision appears superior to HDR10 but I get the feeling that a majority of companies out there, software or hardware will not support it. I applaud Uni and Lionsgate for making the promise but suspect not many others will get on board, making it a niche feature. I would love to buy a display that supports both. I understand that if a display is capable of Dolby Vision then it is also capable of HDR10 but we have seen one or the other but not both so far on displays.

    It IS better but sadly it may not be adopted. Maybe if companies focused on that versus trying to shove 3D down our throats.

    Dolby Vision would have made a bigger visual impact versus 3D, IMO.

    Dolby is having a hard time getting consumer companies on board for DV. The extra licensing fee(s) plus the required chips all add expenses to support Dolby Vision. Of course in theaters there is only Dolby Vision when it comes to HDR.

    The biggest differences between DV and HDR10 are two fold: DV uses 12 bit color gamut as it's baseline and is set for a maximum 4000 nits peak brightness. HDR10 only uses 10 bit color gamut and it's highest peak brightness is only 1000 nits. HDR10 has no future. It is what it is today and forever. Of course there are no licence fees attached to HDR10.

    That's why HDR10+ is coming soon. Which is dynamic.

    My original unedited post alluded to a possible model 205 as well. Looks like that one is also on track to be a reality.

    Latest quote from OPPO Digital INC


    "We do not have an established price and release date yet, but we are looking to release the player mid-December for an estimated MSRP of $499.00."

    SELECT QUOTES FROM SOUND AND VISION MAGAZINE

    "While its exact price is still under review, the UBD-203 should launch at between $500 and $600"

    "In addition to Ultra HD discs (including HDR10 high dynamic range, with a later firmware update promised for Dolby Vision), the UBD-203 will play back Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, DVD, DVD-Audio, SACD, and audio CD."

    The article above has a model number typo. It should say UDP-203.

    Site pimping?
    Simply posting a URL with zero explanation by definition is site pimping.
