Does DVDA7 support X.V.YCC color for the old "mastered in 4k" thing?

I just had a thought about the "mastered in 4k" blu rays that were common before 4k came out, that would store extra color gamut and color bit depth in the blu ray that some TVs could pick up. Is there a way for me to take advantage of this with Vegas Pro 17 and DVDA7?

Or is this a proprietary Sony thing that we can't do?

Mastered in 4K may or may not be marketing bull. In any case it has nothing to do with compliant Blu Ray HD streams, which are MPeg2, VC-1, or AVC(x264) only. Whatever the orignal was 'mastered' in, it has to be encoded into one of those. Only UlHD 4K Blu Ray can carry HDR colour gamuts, standard Blu Ray HD would not be able to use anything but SDR Rec. 709.
