Samsung BD-P1000 Will Output 1080p/60  

post #1 of 11

The following quotes are from a Canadian board and were posted by someone claiming to work for Samsung:

Quote:
I work at Samsung and the specs above were from January. After CES, it was decided to change the specs to include 1080p output. So please note, the BD-P1000 will output 1080p...not only 1080i.
Quote:
The BD-P1000 will output BOTH 1080P/60 AND 1080P/24. Although there is no official press release at the time, I assure you this is the information we have gotten from Korea.

As for the January press release; it has obviously been revised (as is to be expected when information is released 5-6 months prior to mass-production). And as an FYI, at CES, our BD-P1000 was only 1080i. But during CES, the marketing people from Samsung US contacted Korea and asked them to include 1080p.
Personally, I have no idea if this guy is the real deal but I thought I'd pass this on anyway. Will update if he reveals any more info.

This has been reported elsewhere and is apparently true. I think even Circuit City's description mentions 1080p. I want to know about its other features, whether or not it includes built-in DTHD and DTS-HD decoders. Also which deinterlacer/scaler it uses for SD DVDs. (Hope it's not Faroujda b/c of MB.)

I mean, TV Authority's page on the Samsung mentions a "full color high defintion animated button," whatever the hell that means!

But I didn't think the 60 fps was confirmed yet.

Is there even a cable with the bandwidth necessary to carry 1080p/60. I don't think there is.

The specs for HDMI 1.1 allow for 1080p60, but it's not mandatory for manufacturers. Supposedly the bandwidth for current HDMI is twice as much as necessary for 1080p HDTV.

The band width necessary for 1080p/60 is in excess of 124mb/sec vrs the 44mb/sec for 1080i/30.
There are no cameras that have a 1080p/60 frame rate, only 1080p/24

The film's 1080p/24 and if the display's native res is 1080p/60, you may have two choices for where to do the inverse telecine, the player or the TV. If your TV accepts 1080p/60, you also have a current or future external scaler as an option. And, PC...

DVI Dual Link! (; But there do exists cables capable of it, some of it actually affordable.

There has been some discussion that based on the chips announced for the samsung, it will be a post processor chip that will actually be sending the 1080p...

I.e. Internally, the 1080p source is output at 1080i, where a secondary chip then deinterlaces/line doubles or telecines to 1080p30/60/etc, and then sends it to the HDMI output.

That's speculation, but since the Broadcom chip they're currently supposed to be using doesn't support 1080p output (same one in Toshiba's HD DVD players I think), it's probably close to reality. Keep in mind, that it seems like the margins on BD players are much higher than the Toshibas (again based on speculation, but probably close to reality as well), so implementing this 2nd tier output solution is more viable in a BD vs HD DVD player for now.

And wich players are heavily subsidized, and being introduced were there is no market, let alone a high volume market to make up for this?
