As for the question that you are attempting to badger me with, at this point Iâ€™m going to answer it in legal speak, â€œitâ€™s been asked and answeredâ€
No, it's not presumptuous at all.
My argument is based on:
1) objective studies about the capability of the Human Vision System
2) Your own links written by professionals
3) My own long-term experience with high end displays with various content and at various viewing ratios
4) the similar experiences of many video professionals, AGAIN including those in your own links
5) Basic imaging theory with continuous-tone imaging and the benefits of upscaling an image based on these kinds of images. This is covered in any relevant imaging text.
Lastly, no you have not addressed my question at all, which is why I asked it a second time. I'll ask it again, because you don't want to address it at all:1)What is the best way to watch Standard Definition content?
2) Do you watch SD content (say from a DVD) on a display that matches the native resolution of the content (480)?
3) If so on number 2, Do you feel this is the best possible way to view standard definition content?
4)Most importantly: are you asserting that upscaling and viewing on a display with greater resolution provides no improvements in the image with regards to either the display of the actual source content, or the actual structure of the display?
Note that number 4 is largely rhetorical, and I do admit that, as the previous 3 address this question in different ways. I also admit that it is largely rhetorical because it is established in basic imaging theory. However, it is clear to me in your arguments that you may implicitly be ignoring this essential point, and I am attepting to clarify this issue. Because if you are arguing from a perspective that is in clear abrogation of basic assumptions with regards to imaging, I need to know that at the beginning, otherwise the discussions are pointless because I am too far ahead in the subject and wasting time.
