As mentioned, just reporting what I'd read (from memory) comparing resolution pumping from earlier reviews versus the VW60 review. But just to see if I was recalling in error, went back through some '07 WSR gregr reviews using original-1080i video broadcasts:
Jan.'s XV-Z20000U review commented: "Resolution pumping was also more apparent with Sharp's deinterlacing." (That's video
deinterlacing with Sharp's own video processor, or CV-IC).
March's Optoma HD81 review: "Resolution pumping was very minor." (Gennum VXP processor.)
May's JVC RS1 review: "Images were sharp with excellent detail and extremely fine textures, and only minor resolution pumping with movement." (Gennum VXP processor.)
Nov.'s Sony VW60 review, paraphrased per gregr's no-quote request: He reported excellent static sharpness and definition, and noticed modest resolution pumping that caused fine details to blur on a talk-show host's shirt when he moved while giving his monologue. (Didn't spot mention of video processor; maybe proprietary, as with Sharp's.)
That's the motion-blurring references I noticed. Since I read the other reviews throughout '07, I might have mistakenly 'blended' some review comments about "no" line twitter mentioned with certain models and, erroneously, "no" resolution pumping (never published). But there seems to be a distinction made with the Sharp and Sony models and the others, as the quotes above suggest. -- John
