Question 10-Bit x264 Support

Does anyone know if HDI will add support for 10-bit pixel bit depth decoding in the next or any future firmware update for their players? At the least as a firmware option for their next generation of players?

Hi-Jack, it would be great if we could get an answer to this from a dev. I personally wanted to start encoding all my files into 10-bit pixel depth eventually, at the least for the potential space savings benefit alone, but as I see it now, the Dune player (i have a BD prime 3.0) is unable to handle any of my mkvs using a high10 x264 profile with their current decoding engine. The audio and subtitles pull through, but the video does not.

I am encoding my 10-bit mkvs using the following x264 parameters:
--profile high10 --preset slow --tune film --level 4.1 --crf 17.00 --ref 4 --no-fast-pskip

This is the same profile I use for the majority of all my other films, I only increased crf from 18 to 17 and added the high10 profile to enable 10-bit pixel depth encoding.

More info on 10-bit pixel depth:

Did you TV support 10bit?

Did you now -all Blu-ray have only 8bit-no more?

Sigma 8642 does not mention the Hi10P profile, Blu-Ray have normal High Profile with 8 bit color. So don't expect miracle HDI could add support for 10-bit pixel bit depth decoding.

yeah, would be nice though. I wanted to redo all my encodes as 10-bit since it saves space and increases quality
