Can ANY TV do that?
If not, I'm wondering when we will see TV's that can accept 120Hz signals ... and outboard video processors that can do this (and a whole lot more). It would be interesting to see what companies like Lumagen, Anchor Bay, Silicon Optix, etc. could do with motion interpolation, etc. Unfortunately, you need a TV that can accept 120Hz for it to be possible.
The Sony A3000 rear projector will display 24fps at 96HZ and 60fps material at 120HZ. With the motion enhancer off and motion naturalizer off each frame is frame doubled instead of using interpolation of new frames method.http://ultimateavmag.com/rearproject...000/index.html
The Sony appears to have a issue with detecting 3:2 pulldown. Many displays do not do a reverse 3:2 pulldown and some of the ones that do have poor quality results.
“I still spotted a few very subtle deinterlacing artifacts, but they were never distracting. Video-based 1080i material was correctly deinterlaced, as was film-based material, but the Sony did not recognize 3/2 pulldown on the latter.”
“Motion blur is not as significant an issue on an SXRD (or LCoS) display as it is in many flat panel LCDs, but it is more prevalent than on a DLP or plasma set. As one of the new 120Hz displays, the Sony KDS-50A3000 offers two features designed to minimize motion blur: Motion Enhancer and Motion Naturalizer.
Sony's literature and manual are both vague in describing what each of these features does. But I scoped out a bit more detail from Sony HQ. With both of them turned off, the set converts a 60 frames per second (fps) source (a 60Hz refresh rate) to 120fps by simply repeating a each frame a second time. For a 24fps source, the set repeats each frame four times to produce 96fps.”
