For recap, my setup is an LG OLED 65E7P(4K,HDR10, Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos) and an LG UP970 UHD DVD player will the same features, except Dolby Vision is not yet available, it is a software upgrade said to be available soon.
I am experiencing all of these features for the first time, 4K - HDR10 - Dolby Vision - Dolby Atmos, so this is a little overwhelming at the moment. Turning on Dolby Atmos is a significant improvement, turning on HDR is an amazing experience. I've watched Planet Earth 2 with HDR10 off and then on...WOW! I can only access Dolby Vision via Netflix, my first experience was a crashing ferris wheel scene that I had to look away from cause I thought I was going down lol
What I really want to compare is HDR10 to Dolby Vision and that may take awhile, my first comparison isn't fair as Planet Earth is designed to wow you with nature scenes while I was watching a Netflix series in DV.
I have accumulated some shares at 52.00 and some at 58.00. I plan on accumulating some more if the chart looks like there is support to maintain the current levels without backfilling from the pop three weeks ago. However, accumulation amounts are in the 100's not 1,000's. :-)
I have looked at the LG OLED "B" and "C" Series (2017 models). Is there a significant difference with the "E" Series? I also own UDC (Symbol: OLED), so my preference, regardless, would be an OLED TV - not interested at all with Samsung's QLED.
The panels themselves are said to all be the same, although we do not know whether there are different minimum standards for defects to meet the various models. The difference is in the electronics(the processor mainly), the form factor(flat, curved, picture on glass, wallpaper), and the sound bar(E, G, & W).
The E model is picture on glass(a very cool touch imo) and has the attached sound bar at the bottom. I wasn't sure I wanted to pay a lot more for the E but the Labor Day sale that brought the 65" E down to $2599 made that decision easy.
Dolby's annual Apple revenue could be up to $35M, says Piper JaffrayApple's (AAPL) iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and Apple TV 4K will incorporate Dolby Vision (DLB), Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson tells investors in a research note. While the economics are unclear, assuming a royalty of 10c-15c per iPhone, revenue would fall between $20M-$30M annually for Dolby, Olson tells investors in a research note. Apple TV sales are likely 5M-8M units per year, potentially adding another $5M to revenue, the analyst estimates. He believes the longer term impact could be more material, however, depending on adoption of Vision on other devices. Olson upped his price target on Dolby shares to $52 from $49 and keeps a Neutral rating on the name.
I'll be buying some more later this week. I would expect their earnings announcement to give some guidance of when the Apple and Amazon lines of business will start to bear meaningful fruit. I would suspect it would take a few quarters to move the needle on earnings. Dividend hike would be much appreciated to reinforce future guidance/higher expectations.
