Chris- the quality of Vudu 3D is pretty good with a really good and sustainable internet service that maintains
9-10 Mbs down so no buffering. Vudu's codec is fixed to the bit rate does not throttle with your speed. It maintains quality and if you buffer too much you'll need to revert to a lower quality throughout the movie. ( HD vs HDX setting) I have Frozen in BD and on Vudu and that movie's image quality, noise level, and detail are the same on my 92" screen.
The audio on Big Hero 6 is quite good but the meta data is only at 5.1 so this is restricted on this title. Some Vudu titles do offer 7.1 so the service isn't technically restricted. I have looked at the bit rate of the vudu downloads and it is similar to that on the disk. Most high end Home theater screens can display the variable bit rates for sound and video streams from the media. I do believe that when the BD is released next month the audio will be Dolby Atmos and that will be the advantage of having the title on BD vs. Vudu. But you will need a compatible Home theater with Atmos and a region free player to experience that advantage.
* Don uses the word "troll" as a positive, not a negative. It's a humorous context the one he's putting it in.
And he knows it very well and because of him I learned to like the word now. I finally accepted it as a normal way of life in our new evolved system of communication. We just have to look @ the bright side of life; and that is exactly what Disney 3D Blu-ray is not doing, here.
Just so there is no confusion- I define a Troll as one who constantly follows objective and informative posts with repeated diatribe of complaints just to stir up arguments and negative attitude, often coupled with statements of personal opinion that are not based in fact and some outright lies. All for the purpose of promoting a personal hate agenda.
A whiner is not so vindictive as a Troll. A whiner just repeats his dissatisfaction over and over hoping to gain sympathy from like minded pouters.
For example this is the dialog of a thread infected with trolls and whiners-
A post that states: "Big Hero 6 will be released on March 24 on 3D BD in region B through Amazon UK I look forward to this."
A Troll responds- This is not an official release and Disney is just trying to destroy 3D. They are stupid and are losing money by refusing to offer 3D in the US. Disney is evil... and on and on and over and over and over in every thread where a simple piece of information is presented to help others know what is going on. The Troll is only interested in generating a hate message to create arguments on the forum.
The whiner responds: I too don't like Disney and upset that they don't give me what I want when I want for what I want to pay. I'm a poor sole and can't afford what Disney charges and can't afford to buy from overseas because I spent all my money on a $120,000 Home Theater with Dolby Atmos and a 4K screen and now can't afford a BD player with region free mod for $60. Why must I buy a region free? because Disney makes me that's why. Me Me Me I I I I etc. whine whine, whine,
Oh the forum is so G.D. boring lately. I just want to go back to my HT and watch another Vudu and enjoy what is offered. The trolls and whiners can wallow in their misery, on the outside looking in.
Do Trolls really despise the hand that feeds them? I don't think so. By definition, a Troll is only interested in stirring up arguments , hate, and controversy.
Now Bob- Good or Bad, please change how you feel about my use of the words Troll and Whiner. I hope the above clarifies it. I really do want the Trolls and whiners to go start their own thread and stay away from the threads that are designed to inform. Heck title the thread Disney is evil for all I care, just stop trolling and whining in the information threads. If you have an update, that says Disney is delaying a release date previously announced, that is good info too.
