Display panels temporal behavior
I am a bit frustrated that the tv manufacturers seems to pay so little attention to the temporal behavior of televisions as well as television systems (set top boxes, cabletv, etc).
They will happily research (and market) motion-tracked temporal upsampling and High Frame Rate standards.
But being able to accept any common format (24fps, 25/50fps, 30/60fps and 1001/1000 variants thereof) and simply push the frames at the right time to the physical panel without introducing stuttering, frame drops/inserts etc seems to be really hard. Or something they just don't care about. If I am right: why is it so?
I have a feeling that when I watch European (25/50Hz) content on my European television, somewhere along the line (at the tv studio? In my tv?), someone just decided that "Ah, 60Hz is what we use". And content will be frame dropped/inserted to fit with that schedule back and forth with dubious results.
