Moving from SRGB to P3 and soon Rec2020 for most consumer devices... perceptually, is this just an increase in saturation?
I understand the chromaticity diagrams, and there is of course hue expansion from SRGB.
But in real-life consumer viewing, eg. Dolby Vision on iPad Pro, perceptually I notice primarily deep, rich, saturated colours.
Is this what wide-gamut for the masses will be? Or is there more I’m not getting? I know with 10-bit and HDR there is a better brightness and colour range. But to the layperson, will they mainly notice “wow colours!”?
I wanted to comment here FWIW. Recently when I'm at the theatre I look out for how cinemas use Display P3, and "regular" digital projection vs Imax 2D. It's a subtle thing, but very interesting. Black Panther is the best recent example I can think of. There are certain scenes, and particularly costumes, where they use the saturation and/or beyond-SRGB colours to "pop" colours for emotional effect. It can also draw the eye, set the atmosphere, etc. Sometimes though they go for a desaturated look, eg. the start of the movie (flashback).
