As I understand it, of the BD players out there, the Sony BDP-S1, the Pioneer and PS3 all use a direct 1080p stream while the Samsung and Panasonic use a video processing chip for deinterlacing.


Is there a thread somewhere that explains the difference in image quality due to this? Is there any practical difference in image quality? Wasn't the video processing chip in the Samsung the culprit for all of those problems when it launched?


The next Samsung is supposed to use the Realta but will this produce an image superior to a direct stream like you find off the Sonys or Pioneer? Does this "direct 1080p" stream even matter? If the info on the disc is encoded 1080p, why would a player interlace and then de-interlace it?


Also, does the new LG player use a chip or is it direct stream?


Sorry if these questions exist in a thread elsewhere.


Thanks.

This is interesting... You know if the processor is good enough there will be no difference in what comes directly off the disc 1080p/24 -vs- what can be achieved with 1080i/60....


A quality scaler would be able to re-create the 1080p/24 exactly like the original on the disc.
