No and the PQ really leaves a lot to be desired. To me, the picture looks very flat. The CGI scenes look great, but the filmed portions look "dead". Other shows on UPN look awesome, so I don't know if it's the way it was filmed or what. I am viewing on KPTV Digital Ch 30-01 in Portland, OR with a Dish 6000 receiver.

Not broadcast in HD, but it is shot with HD cameras. I wish I had a URL. I think it was discussed on this board though. So maybe we can hope UPN gets online with HD now that everyone (but Fox) is.


At least they show it in OAR.

UPN Digital 45 in the SF Bay Area is awful, IMHO. Mind you, I only really watch Enterprise, so maybe that is what is awful ;)


It seems that SF UPN just broadcasts its analogue feed digitised, so there are crappy analog effects visible in the digital feed...


It is broadcast letterbox in 4:3 - would prefer to see it 16:9 at least...


Cheers!

DAve.

I;m glad you think the CG is groovy, but I can tell you almost without a doubt that the CG footage is being produced at 720x480. If they did an HD presentation, they would be upscaling the CG.

It's barely in SD here in Washington on Channel 20. Very fuzzy. Terrible (or is that trible) PQ.

gravy,


That's just what I read. The CG is in SD, but the actual "filming" was with HD cameras.


I know it was discussed on this board. I just can't find it... .


Anyway, it doesn't matter as long as UPN keeps broadcasting LBX SD.

For at least the 20th time, Enterprise is shot on film and transferred to HD. The visual effects are done in standard definition and upconverted, then integrated into the HD master. The master is then downconverted and letterboxed for air. It is NOT shot on HD video. If you doubt this, please see http://www.level3post.com/millimeter_hd.htm for confirmation.

The good news here is that Enterprise season 1 episodes are "in the can" as HD. We'll be able to enjoy these episodes at some future date in all their HD glory, not just upconverted. Don't forget the re-run aspect of the Trek empire. :)
