Works for me, could be some sort of region lock by the ISP.

Also on page 30 there is a typo, says "disgonals smooth", guessing it should read "diagonals smooth".

No pre-orders. First place to have will be OPPOs website followed by Amazon and the it will go out to dealers who purchase from there.

For those that had an issue with the original link, can you retry?

We found 14 or so bugs. We are waiting on the next build. We received the first build of the bonus DVD on Monday, sent feedback Tuesday, and will have a new build tomorrow. (Thursday)

March was out when we were not done by 2/1. Right now we are looking at April.

We signed off on the cover and booklet, so that should be going to print any moment now.

We found one regression that must be fixed as well as a few new bugs. There will be at least one more build, hopefully we have it this week. We are so close!

Hi Stacey,

Would you be able to tell me if you're authoring the new disc in the standard 4:2:0 at 8-bit levels? I have been looking around for some sort of test pattern that will visually tell me if my projector is able to display pixels at 10-bit or 12-bit luminance depth. I figure Luminance would be the easiest to tell by "the eye" if there are any banding effects cause by a lower 8-bit restriction.

Yes, it is 8-bit 4:2:0. That is all Blu-ray supports.

The masters are being shipped to the replicator and the booklet has been sent to the printer. We are working on a new website that should launch when the disc is available to purchase.

Awesome. Big question for me is whether to use the 6.5% or 4% windows in my vt50 or these equal energy patterns. Everyone is still up in the air on APL patterns.
