Future television exhibit suggests HD resolutions, with smaller displays

May 31, 2005

HDTV and big screens are almost synonymous and with good reason, those wanting to spend the extra dollars for a HD capable set, often want the virtual real-estate to go with it.

What is Pulldown, and if it’s so great, why would you want to remove it?

December 14, 2004

Modern film is projected at 24 frames per second. Video, in the U.S. and many other countries, is displayed at 60 pictures per second. So, when we want to convert film content to video, as long as we can come up with a way to repeat each film frame an average of 2.5 video pictures, our job is done. One way to do this is to repeat the first film picture 2 times, the second film picture 3 times, and so on: 2, 3, 2, 3. You might have heard of 2:3 or 3:2 pulldown — this is where those numbers come from. 2:3 and 3:2 pulldown are the same thing — they are not ratios, like they first appear to be.
