isn't the comb filter a good thing to have and why does the xbr950 not have it ?
This is from another Thread, posted by BobFilmore. If I knew how, I'd throw in the URL here ...
The CCP2 integrates a 3D comb filter and CCP's digital driven chrome decoder.
This 1-chip digital solution converts any NTSC source to a pure component
video signal and helps DRC-MultifunctionV1 work efficiently. CCP2's digital
processing is increased from 8 bit to 10 bit to improve contrast.
Advanced Panel Driver LSI
This new panel driver was developed to produce dynamic, smooth contrast
and improve sharpness. By increasing the performance of the panel driver
from 12 bit to 14 bit, sharper and deeper contrast is achieved."
As I understand it, the XBRs have a purely digital signal processing path and split the color information so that much of the filtering (like the comb) analog signal processing needs isn't required. Thus the distortion that analog processing leads to simply doesn't happen in the XBR.
Take with a grain of salt ... can't even prove that the XBR is pure digital ... this is gleaned from rhetoric produced by Sony's marketing and investor relations, which have distortions in their own right.
