I was under the impression that ghosting/crosstalk was not possible on the HMZ due to it being 2 separate displays, one per eye. personally I have never seen any and I game a lot in 3D, I mean a lot!!
Bad media or a faulty unit perhaps?
Ghosting is the more accurate term that should be used for describing artifacts that can visually
appear when there is one screen viewed that has two images displayed on it and which the two pictures are then filtered back to one distinct image for each eye via glasses. There can never be ghosting on the HMZ because there are never two images on one screen. Crosstalk on the other-hand is the correct term that is used when artifacts appear as a result of electrical interference of the video signal from insufficient insulation of the wiring in the equipment that causes the quality control problem. This can begin in the authoring end, including the 3D camera, where the interference can be authored in the recording to disc. It can resemble ghosting in that the two video channels are merging together through electrical "crosstalk" interference. The interference can also be the result of cheap insulated cables being used at the consumers end that manifests in the same form of noise interference in the video and/or the audio channels.
i.e. Ghosting is pure visual manifestation and Crosstalk is electrical interference that can manifest many of the same effects.
Therefore, HMZs can show crosstalk but never ghosting. The good news is that in all the 165 BD 3Ds I own, I've never experienced any crosstalk in any professional theatrical productions; A sign of quality authoring equipment in the industry and good quality control vigilance.
