MOST EXCELLENT news on BRD
-- no ANALOG HOLE FILLING down rezing
-- IMPRESSIVE SOUND
Looks like I might not "wait and see" as long as I had thought.
AND it looks like the AUDIO improvements maybe the tipping point
That said; TWO THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND
1 - OAR - ORIGINAL ASPECT RATIO for 2.39 FILMS
Yes, this is The Cap'n's broken record . . . . as there has been ZERO
word from the studios on this . . . unless I am mistaken.
The news keeps getting better but let's not forget about letting the studios know about supporting OAR.
2 - SONY's 4K PROJECTOR DEMO
I would LOVE to see this . . . I am sure it is impressive.
14 Ft/lamberts over 23 feet YIKES
That said; I would bet big money that the DVD side of the screen was
I would guess that the comparison would be closer if the DVD source
were SDI at 960 P thru a Terranex quadrupler.
Properly upscaled 480 I DVD's are still extremely viable . . . . so
the NEW formats will need to be REALLY better, cheaper, more convenient
AND more respectful of us, the buying public,
in order to succeed.
Still and all, the news keeps getting better.
I be getting excited again . . . . .
Film Is NOT DEAD -- it is the Gold Standard against which all other formats are measured
