It's also one of my favorites. I rate it as a test pattern. It's good to show the linearity of the upper range (all ranges of whites before bloom). It also shows how well the Moome card handles the upper range. Check out the text("Planet Earth") and note how perfect white it is, and that there's no blooming at all in the text.
Is Planet Earth 4:3 or did you crop it??
No, it's 16:9, with the camera being close to the screen.
So how is William feeling lately? Is he starting to get stoked?
He's good so far. We're far enough ahead of things for any real concerns before the meet date. We plan to all all things in place near the end of the month. Right now we're curing tubes and finishing the setup.
I'm so happy that you guys are going to be using stand alone sources for BD and HD DVD playback. That picture is going to be SMOKING dude
That's the only thing that makes sense now-a-days, especially if you want the quickest and simplest way to get the best HD. I'm really not into HTPC's anymore. And why bother when you can get 1080P in the raw - right from a box that also takes in the DVD..
Is he staying with the same screen size? I realize maybe I should be asking him these questions, but I figure you'll pass it on.
Yes, same screen. But we're hoping to darking the area around the screen and forward of the room as well.
Just trying to knudge him to pop on in and start the thread a little early
I'm sure he will. And I'm also thinking it's time to put this as a thread. Maybe you and I can twist his arm when he sees this.
That's where we can kick it for the next couple months and hope the moderators dont shut down the thread.
Naw, I think we're safe. This is all done in a good spirit, and that they don't mind. Plus this is the kind of stuff that brings great joy and excitement to the hobby. And if not for all, I know I'm not the only one out there that simply loves this stuff.
