Yes, they can benefit both Blu-ray Discs and DVDs.


Remember that the only way to encode Blu-ray Disc at 30fps is 1080i, as 1080p30/60 is not in Blu-ray spec. Even if a concert was shot 1080p30, it must be encoded 1080i60 on Blu-ray and undergo deinterlacing for display. Some players (like the Panasonic BD30, for example) simply bob 1080i Blu-ray material resulting in loss of resolution. With other players like the Pioneer BDP-51FD's Source Direct mode, you can output both 480i DVD and 1080i Blu-ray to a Reon/Realta chip for proper deinterlacing and hence best picture.


Therefore, having a superior deinterlacing device such as Reon/Realta can benefit the numerous 1080i/30fps Blu-ray Discs, which includes most concerts and nature documentaries - and it can greatly benefit DVD as well. Of course, Reon/Realta will have zero impact on 1080p24 Blu-ray Discs, despite the improvement on 1080i60 Blu-ray Discs.

Not aside from the glitchy BD-UP5000, but on the upside you can pair Blu-ray players with Source Direct output mode either with the $699 Gefen Realta scaler or the $1000 Onkyo 875 receiver which feature Realta and Reon scaling respectively and get virtually the same results as if you had the Reon/Realta chip builtin to the player.

Interesting . . . do any of the other Samsung BD players have the Reon/Realta chip?

Bill,


First off, I want to give you props for your HT setup. Very nice. I also use the MX850 Remote.


Now, in regards to a blu ray player having the HQV Reon or Realta.... Realta will most surely put any bluray player way above $1000. (Denon DVD3800CI $1999.00 & the Marantz BD8002 $1999.00) Now, "Ruin" is correct when stating that Samsung offers the Reon version in the dual format BD-P5000. It was also in the earlier BD-P1200, arguably it's only redeeming quality. But Samsung is about to introduce the BD-P2500. It will have the Reon along with the ability to internally decode all of the Hi-Rez formats and will be 2.0 Profile ready. It will be priced at around $700.00.
