Pixelation in HD content: The signal or the television?
by dgden - 12/12/07 10:41 AM
I have a Sony XBR4 LCD HDTV and noticed that in some HD content there is visible pixelation especially in faster motion when I see pixely squares appear.
It is fairly minor and appears to be noticeable in some HD programming but not the other. Was watching Victoria Secret Fashion Show in HD, darn those girls look great in high def , and noticed a bit of pixelation when models walked down the runway.
I have not noticed it so much in other shows though, take Smallville in HD or Leno or Letterman (not much motion in talk shows though). I don't recall seeing it in a bunch of others as well.
This is actually one artifact that I really dislike and would like to know if this would be an issue with the content such as loss of some information in the signal, or is it the TV that is not able to keep up with the processing?
Is it something I would see on any HDTV or would it not be a problem say on the Plasma VS LCD?
Could I still see the pixely squares when wantching Blue Ray or HD DVD (I don't own either one)?
Thanks for the input!
