YUP TO THE BOLD!
Sure, HVD will have the quality of Blu-Ray or HD, and will probably make them look like 1960's broadcast TV. HVD is a storage system, which is why I mentioned it apropos to gogochar's comments. Whatever picture standard and compression mechanism will be used on top of it is up to the standards committee though there might be something better more proven than h.264 and whatnot by the time it is standardized as a video format. Last I heard 300 Mb discs were ready, which is about 12 BR discs. Or you could hold a conventional, hi-def movie in a "disc" about 1/12 the size of a current BD or HD disc, if you want to look at it that way.
blu-ray may win being its a true 1080p res.
HD-DVD is also encoded in 1080p.
The ideal situation for either BluRay or HD-DVD would be:
(1) a player that can output the pure 1080p/24 signal without processing
(2) a display that can accept the pure 1080p/24 signal eliminating 3:2 pulldown and motion judder.
The Sony Ruby and Pearl projectors and some Pioneer plasmas accept 1080p/24. Am I right Ced? Some next gen HD-DVD players (Toshiba HD-XA2 in particular) will output 1080p/60 thru HDMI.
BTW, I got the Panasonic DMP-BD10 BluRay player from my dealer yesterday and I'll spend the next few days putting it through its paces.
let us know how you like it.i am waiting on the HD format to iron out before i pull the trigger and buy one.
i did get a OPPO OPDV971H Digital HD-Ready Up-Converting DVD Player ordered on sun. so i should have it by weds. heard very good reviews about this player so i got one to run with my new Yamaha RX-V1700 AV receiver and my Sony SXRD 60 inch
Where you getting your money from?
Yep and Sony never wins. The PS3 trojan horse is Sony's only hope.
another reason to wait a bit before buying one
Ugh, I hate how technology advances so rapidly! You go out and buy the best computer and next thing you know its outdated! Its like a never ending battle.
I was also looking at this model. Let us know how it works on your setup.
eatsushi, have you givin any thought into have your Sony SXRD 60" ISF Calibrated ??/ i am going to look into it
ISF calibration for me is the holy grail. If I do decide I'll probably have him calibrate my projector too.
True. Actually, it's a never-ending quest to get you to re-purchase the same crap you've bought umpteen times before, essentially turning you into a human ATM. I prefer to call it Getting Milked Like A Cow.
Does anyone know if ISF calibrators will work on 1080p displays with a 1080p test signal? I have a Sony XBR1 series SXRD and a Sony Pearl projector both at 1080p. The Pearl can accept a 1080p signal thru HDMI.
Here's a video signal generator that can output 1080p signals - the Sencore VP403C
@eatsushi: Give me a couple more days with the Panny then I'll post my impressions. I need to get a few more quality BD releases.
Milked like a cow lmao
umm correct me if im wrong but i was on my local target and saw a flyer that explain blue ray vs hd dvd and they all had the same specs except that blue ray has 5x the compacity of a dvd as where hd dvd only has 3 , now what is next gen stuff requires???? more gb size to work with video's/games and such , just cuz hd dvd is called like that it does not nessary mean its high defination its high intensity digital versital disc
so i think blue ray wins the war
BD can hold up to 50 Gb on a Double-layer BR disc, whereas HD-DVD can hold about 30 Gb. However, HD-DVD apparently uses better video compression.
apprently if you conpress a file it shortns the quality , likewise with dvd5 back ups vs a dvd9 you always get better if you have more space = less conpression = true hd see where i am going?
@dblbogey7: Just got off the phone with an ISF certified calibrator (recommended by my dealer) who does use Sencore hardware and software for 720p/1080i/1080p signal generation and analysis. He also prides himself with his audio/surround sound calibration. He'll give me a list of his rates by e-mail. Don't forget to let us know how you like (or dislike) the Panny BD player.
BR has the size and is lagging in getting tis stuff out (BR DL was jsut made stable 2 months ago)
HDDVD has it all going stable 2 and 3 layer discs good compression and codecs its on the ball ,this time next year whos know probably be neck and neck but as it stands now HD DVD is better.
