No, but I work in the industry. I'm writing software for media processors, and I get to play with all this high-res stuff every day Smiley

I agree with your feelings about film vs. digital, nothing beats a clean, new copy on a good projector. Unfortunately, most copies are rather worn out, and most projectors aren't in pristine condition either. For a digital picture to match film, you'll have to wait until 4k (4096x4096 pixel) technology is avaiable to the masses. Give it a decade or two.

I work in film post-production as an Film Editors Assistant. Working in HD is a big headache for a lot of people over here in London as a lot of producers are using it, but don't understand it which leads to lots of problems our end when logging and loading into Avid's of FCP.

dont be. I think its ridiculous that we have to now spend more cash on another dvd player just for more memory.

I thought dvd was the vhs of the future?

"Future" meaning: throughout the rest of fucking history!


why the hell do I have to spend hard earned cash on "dvd player 2.0" (basically) just so I can watch films I already have?

Now you listen to me you money grubbing, mother fucking, fairy buisness men... you have TWO options

you release the Dollars SPs on regular dvd and Blue ray

OR

you can have the sight of my middle finger in close vinicity of your faces!

Ya Gawd Damn Pricks! Eat shite and die!

A word about the blu-ray format, and why I am so excited about it: Resolution! much more of it, to be exact:
A Movie (as you know, with 24 frames a second) is encoded on DVD as digital pictures with 720 by 480 pixels. For cinemascope/techniscope, the format Leone has been using, where you have the black bars on the top and bottom, this goes down to 720x360 for anamorphic (16:9) images, and even around 720x270 for non-anamorphic (4:3) DVDs. Not very many pixels...

On Blu-Ray, pictures can be encoded as 1080p, that is 1920x1080 pixels. Subtracting the black bars, you end up with 1920x810 pixels holding actual image information, or 6 times as many pixels as the DVD counterpart.

Then you could send these pictures untouched to e.g. a good video projector or HDMI plasma/LCD TV, as 1080p24, or SourceDirect as they call it in BluRay. Crisper picture than you've ever seen.

By the way, the BluRay disc of FAFDM is already listed on amazon.com, sign up for the notification e-mail to show your interest in Leone on BluRay!

Hi,

   This is my first post.  Thanks for having me on your group.  I have been knocking myself out trying to figure out the HD format etc.

   Currently I have a 32" 16x9 HD Flat Screen Philips CRT.
My DVD player is 480p progressive scan and the HDTV accepts the 3 color component cables.  The TV projects at 480p and OUATITW & GBU Special Editions look SUPERB!

   Now this Philips HDTV does not have DVI input.  If I buy the Blu-ray DVD I will A need a Blu-ray player....correct?  B will the new Blu-ray disc and player transmit a 1080i signal through my 3 color component cables I currently use for 480p in progressive mode.  I do not see a 720p or 1080i option on my HDTV....
.  Does one need a DVI input to go beyond 480p??

   I understand a PAL Anamorphic DVD playing on a 16x9 HDTV has more resolution than a NTSC DVD playing on a 16x9 HDTV....

  In any case it is hard to believe a film can look better than OUTITW at 480p in prog-scan on a 16x9 HDTV CRT Flat screen monitor.

Thanks for any information in advance..

Cheers,

Eric

Hi Mcbain, I'l try some answers with your questions

a) Yes you will need to get a Blue-Ray DVD player

b) On my HD TV I have an HDMI point and lead going from my HDMI DVD player to the HD TV. I think you will need a DVI lead to get HD, but there must be a point on your HDTV to accept and HD source, such as HD cable or Satellite. hmm, have you checked the manuel for the TV and see what it says regarding outside HD Sources?

c) Yes PAL anamorphic does look better then NTSC anamorphic however it seems that most studio's produce their best PQ on NTSC releases. One thing to be wary of with PAL releases is PAL speedup which is where the sound has been sped up to match the new qualities for the PAL presentation (PAL has more visual lines then that of NTSC which equals in improved picture quality but also a shorter run length and the sound has to be adjusted accordingly)

I know C may sound a bit jumbled and I apologies but I hope I have gone some way in answering your questions.  Smiley

I saw the beginning of OUATITW in the PAL speed-up and it was quite irritating!   Angry

There is a marked difference, the worst one I ever heard I thing was Futurama and MST3K The Movie's whose PAL speed up can tak quite a bit of getting used to if your more used to watching the NTSC counterparts.
