The PQ is pretty darn good for ESPN (as per usual with their National Championship coverage). Pretty flawless production so far. Noticed some VITC or captioning data at the top of the frame though on...

The process of making an episodic TV show and a feature film are virtually identical. The only real difference is the working resolution of a TV show will generally be 1920x1080 23.976 fps (1080p)...

Quote:Hmm, I assume they're shooting in 720p; it seems silly to me to shoot in 1080i and convert to 720p. But I don't actually know, so I'll see if I can find out.

A lot of those 2.40 films were shot open frame and cropped to 2.40. Transformers was anamorphic but the vast majority of 2.40 films these days are either Super 35 or digital 16:9 and cropped to...

I think its been discussed that anamorphic blue-rays are on the horizon. But for now 2.40 movies have a working picture area in the neighborhood of 1920x800 (2.40). The rest is black.

Pretty sure Paul is mixing in 5.1. Oscars has been 5.1 since 2003. That being said vocals during music numbers sound odd. Something strange going on in that Les Mis thing. PQ is exceptional as usual.
