During day I was also at shop with television sets. One which take most of my attention was Samsung 52″ FullHD (1920x1080px) one — with very big contrast. It was connected to BlueRay disc player with some demos and trailers. I had to admit that some of them really show what high resolution means — sharp screen, all details on furry animals etc. But some of them used a bit bigger level of compression so it was visible on 52″ 🙁
Looks like companies which worked on HD-DVD and BlueRay did not get idea that LCD technologies will go into such big screens…
During wedding week I was at Ania’s parents house. Recently they bought 42″ wide screen TV and DVB-S receiver. This gave me possibility to watch some HDTV channels and compare them with standard TV.
I have to admit, that such big screen shows why HDTV is future — without high resolution data image is blurred too much — there is too small amount of details on screen. For example faces of news presenters are flat instead of showing face elements (wrinkles for example). There was no time to watch DVD movie but after working with my 20″ LCD monitor I think that on 42″ it will also remind that it is low resolution data ;(
Too bad that my cable TV do not provide HDTV channels ;(
