Understanding Color Gamut
Color gamut spec of a TV indicates the range of colors that the TV can display.
In layman terms, this specification tells the ability of a TV to produce accurate colors. A panel with low color gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), the result would be a "washed out" picture quality.
Different manufacturers use different measurement standards to specify color gamut. Such as — sRGB, NTSC, DCI P3 to name a few.
In case of this TV, its color gamut is specified in DCI P3.
But you don't need to worry about that, below is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.
After color gamut, the static contrast ratio of a TV has equally important role in picture quality.
What is Static Contrast ?
A TV with low static contrast ratio will not produce deep blacks and can bleed backlight as shown below:The image is an example of another display, it is not this one
The above TV's static contrast is 800:1. So make sure you get a TV with a static contrast of >= 1000:1. Ofcourse, More is better.
Static contrast ratio and resolution go hand in hand when it comes to details. To put it into perspective, a TV with low contrast ratio will produce less shades of colors, thus lesser detail overall.
This TV is rated with a static contrast ratio of 8000:1., enough to produce deep blacks and eye-catching visuals. The panel comes with local dimming feature which is a plus.
HDR is also supported on this TV in form of Dolby Vision, HDR10, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) and HDR10+.
As for brightness, it can go as bright as 400 nits. The backlight used on the panel is Direct LED.
