    Myriad different standards, a great way to confuse people.

    Disappointing that instead of setting a sunset date for the not-actually-HDR 'DisplayHDR' standards (DisplayHDR 500, 600) VESA have instead doubled down on garbage by adding DisplayHDR 400! And still failing to mandate a pixels-per-illumination-zone limit so pointless edge-lit panels still get to receive the HDR moniker despite being essentially worthless. Plus aiming low with DCI-P3 as the target colourspace rather than mandating support of (if not full coverage of, due to current technical limitations) the REC2020 colourspace to maintain cross-compatibility with HDR video content.
    This is clearly a 'standard' driven by what panels manufacturers happen to have lying around at the time, rather than any actually useful performance targets to meet.
