Guys,

I know I might be jumping ahead of myself, but does anyone know if Panny AE-900 or Sanyo Z4 can support the next generation of DVD players? Is it too early to know yet? I am considering buying one of the above mentioned projectors which I plan to use for the next few years. I do not want to have to upgrade the projector once Blu ray or HD-DVD comes out later this year. Any thoughts?


Thanks

RB

Yes, they support them at whatever the native resolution of the projector is.


The devices will output at 720p or 1080i, or 1080p if your display is capable of receiving a 1080p signal.

AE900 or Z4 will output up to 720p--if HD is encoded at 1080i/p then they will downscale it. But it is still HD.

I believe all content on discs is progressive in nature, its only if the display can't render it progressively that it will interlace the output (ie: 1080i CRT based HDTV's)....so 1080p on the discs.

Lower resolution of the same format ( Progressive).

Never heard of 1024P though

Blu-Ray and HD-DVD supports a variety of formats up to 1080p (including 720p, 1080i, 480p, 480i, etc). It just depends on the studio what they want it to be, but it seems most want it to be 1080p.

All current DVDs are recorded in 480i ("interlaced").

The proposed Blu-Ray will be 1080p24 or 1080p30 while the proposed HD-DVD will be 720p or 1080i. Neither proposal has yet been adopted so no-one actually knows what the next generation of DVDs will be!

Hmm, I believed official release was close. A few months from now...If no standards are accepted/agreed we will probably have to wait much longer than that. Or, worse, early players that people buy will not work later when standards are final...But perhaps firmware upgrades might fix that in that case...

Headrusch = Schooled :)


I forgot...they're inerlaced and then deinterlaced by 3:2 pulldown in a set or DVD Player....making them progressive.


I did not know about the 1080p24 or 1080p30.......interesting......I thouht it was all 1080p/30

3:2 pulldown has absolutely nothing to do with interlacing or deinterlacing, per se.


3:2 pulldown is a technique for converting a "movie" (which is shot at 24fps) for presentation in a "video" environment (which is displayed at 30 fps). One of the techniques involves line doubling as opposed to deinterlacing.


The proposal for 1080p24 and 1080p30 is a means of recording movies and video productions in their native format with the intention that they be presented in their native refresh rates. That means 1080p24 movies would be refreshed at 48 or 72Hz and 1080p30 video would be refreshed at 60Hz. This places a large onus on the display device to properly support those refresh rates, and more.
