Or someone read the license agreement for the Bose app and used a packet analyser to analyse the data being sent over their network?

James Cameron is apparently going to be using a mix of HFR and normal 24 fps in the Avatar sequels. So it is likely the more stationary, talking shots will be 24 fps with faster action sequences in...

The future is higher than 60 fps. Ang Lee's last film was shot at 120 fps and his next film (about boxing) will probably be 120 fps too. The next gen TV specs are going to include 100/120 fps (120...

Namibia - The Spirit of the Wilderness 4K is also claimed to be HFR (but 50 fps). Though it's a documentary film not a fiction film (I haven't seen it and I don't know for sure how it was shot or...

Yes, 2D 2160p 60 fps, because the UHD BD specs don't include the film's original 120 fps. The reviews, from what I've seen seem to be very positive about the picture quality. It (US version) also...

I think if they were going to add 4K 120 fps (as well as in 3D at that fps hopefully), they might as well add the rest of the frame rates too (eg. 100 fps, which will be used in Europe), and 8K too...

Super MHL already has the bandwidth for 4K (or 8K) at 120 fps. I'm not sure whether it has HDR stuff built in but I'm sure it has the bandwidth. I assume the latest Display Port specs can probably do...

Ang Lee does (eg. for the Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk film) and it's 3D at 120 fps (that's another reason to update the UHD BD specs - it can't handle frame rates up to 120 fps - so we can't have...

For strobing I was talking about judder (not pull-down judder) - temporal aliasing caused by too low a frame rate.
For flickering - if "LCDs won't suffer from it" - the backlight(s) itself must be...

Averaged over 1/60th of a second, what would the difference be? It shouldn't really be a double image, it should just draw it twice in the time a 60Hz display would draw it once. Why would blur be...

But HDR emphasises the strobing (maybe flickering?). I know 50/60Hz is a lot better than 24Hz for lack of strobing but with HDMI 2.1 (allows 10K at 120 fps - but I assume there's a bit of compression...

Surely if they wanted to ditch 576/50i they should have tone with 576/50p not lower the resolution of SD to 540 lines. Maybe they did because 540 is half of 1080 and think that makes upscaling...

Since 2160p is 4x the pixels as 1080p, surely you need to store 2 bits (per channel) from each 2x2 block (2 bits x 4=8 bits per channel) to store in an 8 bit 1080p enhancement layer (or above are you...
