Sorry, but I don't know where to post this stuff. I just found this thread which only applies to the 50/65PF10UK. I'm sorry if you read this post in another of the many threads involving these displays.
....I would like to know if it can handle 24P 48 72 correctly and do proper 3:2 pulldown via the dual HDMI board input, or via component/VGA if you don't have the HDMI yet.
Also a movie test at these rates, using panning scenes to detect any evidence of FRC judder. Anything would be truely appreciated! TIA.
I think there's a lot of confusion in this area. Unfortuntely, I don't have the answers. First, I don't think that there's ever been a suggestion that the 50/65PF10UK can "handle 24P .... 72 correctly". As I understand it, the 50/65PF10UK gives the user a choice between 50hz and 100hz refresh rates. Why 50Hz refresh rate, instead of 48 (2:2 cadence)? Why 100Hz refresh rate, instead of 96 (4:4 cadence)? No one has adequately explained this in a post that I've read.
The question about doing proper 3:2 pulldown is a different issue. As I understand it, the 3:2 pulldown is intended to be used with a display that refreshs at 60hz (all U.S. displays, except some Pioneer's). The 3:2 pulldown converts the 24 fps to 30 fps which is then displayed at 60HZ. Pioneer Elite displays are the first to try and eliminate the 3:2 pulldown and thus the judder on some material.
If a display is designed to correctly eliminate Judder, it should remove
(inverse telecine) the 3-2 pulldown via an algorithm. Once removed, the original pure progressive film image is restored. The display can then use a 3:3cadence (72Hz refresh rate); a 4:4 cadence (96hz refresh rate) or, ideally, a 5:5 cadence (120Hz refresh rate) to display the 24fps material. 120 Hz is ideal because it's an even multiple of 24 (film fps) and 30 (video fps). Done properly, this will eliminate the judder.
The new LCD 120Hz displays are not trying to eliminate judder, they're increasing the LCD response time to reduce motion blur. Thus the even cadences mentioned above are not used with the new 120Hz LCD displays.
So the 10UK doesn't display at 72hz. It will display at 50 or 100hz, but what does that do to eliminate judder or improve the PQ? I would be surprised if the 10UK removes
the 3-2 (actually 2:3) pulldown and displays at an even cadence. Maybe next year.
Any input, corrections or clarification based on what I've said would be appreciated. This is confusing stuff.
