Prime Hd Full 1080i

Recommended Posts

I don't think sunrise is as good as today in terms of HD quality, but it is nice to see that channel 7 does have a 1080i setup.

Any chance of a H&A clip for comparison later tonight?

BTW, still downloading the torrent - these things take forever, no wonder I don't use them... Either way, thanks for making it available to the rest of us :blink:.

@LBM - Torrents are great! Blame my crappy (yet highest plan they offer) optusnet broadband connection.

hopefully others will seed once their dowload is complete.

Public torrents are generally (IMO) not to great, but if you can get onto a private torrent site then speeds on a well seeded torrent can easily max out your conection.

Webscheduler should record Home and Away and ill post my findings asap

Why do I get the feeling that somebody at Seven HQ just developed a stitch and needs a panadol?

14.7Mbps? Damn. Very very nice. With the latest encoders, that'll do nicely.

Do you think some Prime viewers are going to seed torrents for capital city residents now? :-)

CK.

PS, can we get a torrent of the HD demo loop please? Does Prime broadcast it ever?

Here is a capture I found while searching for Prime HD

Yes, we were all looking closely at that, at the time.

Unfortunately, after teasing their HD viewers with a 1080i HD logo for a while, they changed it to a 576p logo, and then commenced 576p broadcasting. Meanwhile, in some areas, Southern Cross were broadcasting Seven programs in 1080i.

Fast forward to today, and Prime has started broadcasting actual 1080i programming.

Can confirm they're broadcasting in 1080i here in Sydney (well, Wollongong) as well...

Elementary Stream PID 4600 (0x11f8) MPEG-2 Video
MPEG Video: Bitrate 90.000 Mbps Resolution 1440 x 1080i
MPEG Video: Framerate 25 fps Aspect Ratio 16:9 Chroma Format 4:2:0

I wonder what happened to 7's objections...

Edit: Is Home and Away field dropped or blended? Doesn't seem that sharp

Lol REST ASSURED if PRIME remains 1080i I'll eat my hat AND buy a HD PVR.

This would make PRIME broadcast Desperate Housewives, Prison Break and Ugly betty at 1080p-amazing considering the US networks FOX and ABC are only 720p.

I would love to seed some torents, but with an upload of ~27kbs its a joke. 1500kbits ADSL, great! until you realise upload is a slowww 256kbits

I forgot to mention Home and Away is in 1080p. 1080i weave the 2 feilds together for a full resolution 1080p. Dont argue with me please...

@Winston, originally I thought 1080 SpF 25 but your right it should be MUCH sharper (to refresh my eyes I opened up a 1080p MPEG 2 TS) and realised Home and Away does not have as much detail as you'd expect. However its full of edge enhancements? Looks like someone's gone a little too crazy with sharpening.

I remember reading somewhere a long time ago, that it was not produced on a HD edit suite (or outputted to HD tape), so it is not actually HD.

It seems to me as though they shot it in 1080i and then did a field drop or field blend resulting what is essentially 1440x540p, this shot here is weave deinterlaced:

This is blend deinterlaced:

Doesn't really seem to be any difference to me leading me to the conclusion above.
