In any case, are you sure you can trust a source (CNet in this case) that uses "IRE" when referring to digital video? There is no such thing as IRE in digital video. IRE is an analog video specification that determines how bright the image is compared to the analog input voltage. Digital video doesn't use analog voltages to determine brightness. In digital video, "% white" is accurate and correct. IRE does not exist for digital video and does not mean the same thing as % white... it CAN mean the same thing as % white when referring to analog video, but it MIGHT NOT be the same thing as % white when referring to analog video... it all depends on how the video display is setup.
