From the DB-60 Owners manual:
24p Output [BD-V] [DVD-V
When this unit is connected to a TV supporting 1080/24p output
via an HDMI cable, this unit displays each frame at 1/24 second
intervals – the same interval originally shot with the film camera
-- When playing DVD-Video, set to “On” and then set “24p” in “Video” (pg 31) to “On”
According to Kris the Panasonic models 35/60/80 are the only released blu-ray players to output DVD at 24p.
Just as it took many years for manufacturer's to eliminate overscan in digital TVs, I expect nothing different for 24p DVD output for Blu-ray players. Overscan was a hold-over from the analog TV days. Now that I think about it so too is 60Hz!
Having a player output the original shot 24p is the
major requirement necessary to display to generate smooth, clear motion frames up to 120/240Hz.
A quote from the BD-35 review:
"Panasonic has included the ability to play back standard DVDs at 1080p/24, which is a rarity for Blu-ray players. For all the people with 1080p/24-capable displays, it’s a bonus to be able to take advantage of removing the judder that’s associated with 3:2 pulldown. You can turn this feature on and off from the display menu while a disc is playing. I tested this out using my Lord of the Rings boxed set, and I was surprised at how well the player performed. Normally, tearing and frame drops are quite evident with frame-rate conversion, but the Panasonic players did quite well. Pans were smooth, and I never noticed any frame drops. The player does take a moment to sync up after a chapter skip, but it was smooth sailing from there."
Notice there is no talk of frame interpolation as front projectors are far behind flat panels in this technology.http://hometheatermag.com/discplayer...u-ray_players/
