Stan­dard Def­i­ni­tion

Satur­day 27 June 2009 03:18

It can't be just the TV-Moder­a­torin­nen. I'm watch­ing just via DVB-T on a 40" Sony Bravia and if Ju­dith Rak­ers changes lip­stick brands I think there is some­thing wrong with my pic­ture. And we're look­ing at only 720x576 tops here, imag­ine go­ing to the full 1920x1080. You can't look good in 1920x1080 un­less you re­al­ly know what you're do­ing. What I think ger­man TV has nailed is that their whole stu­dio set­up is tuned re­al­ly well for HD. And my Bravia does it's part also, but it goes all the way from make­up, light­ing, back­grounds and cloth­ing to prob­a­bly a bunch of dig­i­tal fil­ter­ing that makes the pic­ture look like it was worth buy­ing a Fuck­ing Big Tele­vi­sion. It has lit­tle to do with re­al­i­ty, but it looks good.

And it makes the rest look bad. Like a cropped video of Michael Jack­son with the most im­por­tant part of his moon­walk cut off at the bot­tom. And when was the last time you saw the top of Oba­ma's head on tele­vi­sion?
