Not sure if this is the correct place to post this, but I was wondering what you guys thought about the image quality of the Office in HD.
Overall I think it looks ok, but pretty soft. But most of all, I seem to notice intense banding/posterization (I think those are the right terms) on the characters' faces. I wish I had taken a picture to post here, but I'll try to describe it.
In most shots where there is a closeup of someone's face, there's usually one spot in particular on their forehead that's really shiny- ie, one spot that seems to reflect the lighting the most. On my TV, the various shades of skin that make up the forehead and the shiny spot are displayed in defined "bands"- ie, it's not a smooth gradient of colors.
I'm wondering if other people experience this - is this banding in the source - or is it simply the limit of my TV? I'm watching on a Samsung PN50B450, a 50" plasma at 768p, on Verizon FiOS.
I don't really notice it in other movies or shows. It's incredibly noticeable in the Office.
