If the frames on your regular glasses are so large that you cannot conveniently wear a pair of passive 3D glasses over them, you could consider simply getting some clip-on 3D glasses for your...

Actually negative has been scanned at 4k to 10 bit log since about 1994. Its exactly the same spec used today. A Cineon Lightning scanner from the mid 90s creates scans that are exacty the same...

The judder occurs every time there is a pan so there is no special reason to think about it. It's more noticeable if you sit near the front. That may make a moviegoer "think" about it. We don't give...

I think it's worth noting there is very little visible difference between 4:2:0 and 4:4:4 with 4K real world video rather than computer text (e.g. using a pc operating at 30fps). Even very close to a...

This is only one issue of several wigglywaffles has raised. I may comment on some of the other issues later (if and when I get some time to do so!).

And there is the question of graphics processing units and the onboard decoding they are capable of. It is asking for trouble to depend on a CPU to decode 4k 2D HEVC at 60p rather than a dedicated...

Quite right if indeed one were testing as a jitter source a low frequency that would normally be handled by a separate bass driver and its possible effect on quite high audible frequencies.

No one chimed in!

"Not to be a matter for concern" would suggest either that the jitter level was so very small by measurement/calculation as prima facie not to be of concern, or alternatively...

I see from the manual that the Sony HW55ES accepts HDMI side by side input in a range of formats: 720p50, 720p60, 1080i50, 1080i60, 1080p24, 1080p50, 1080p60. So a pc sending HDMI side by side video...

1920x1080 side by side 3D loses half of the horizontal resolution but retains full 3D depth.

So if the 3D movie actually contains scenes with popout (not all movies do, or have very limited...

Of course.

Amir's article referred to error at the amplitude of the 16th bit at 20kHz being brought about by jitter of 0.5nS. That's why I focussed on 20kHz as a particular source signal...

When read as you read it, it is wrong. When read constructively, with its implicit assumption, it is right.

Happy New Year to you!

Of course.

But my point was that the 0.5nS figure you quoted is a drop in the ocean compared with jitter occuring in other stages of the path from performer to listener. In the case of a solo...
