Blu-Ray: Buena Vista smentisce l'utilizzo del codec VC-1

di

Da un paio di settimane circolano in rete insistenti rumors che danno per certo l'utilizzo del codec VC-1 sui titoli Blu-Ray prodotti da Disney/Buena Vista. La smentita non è tardata ad arrivare.

Buena Vista ha infatti dichiarato che i quattro dischi Blu-Ray in arrivo, utilizzerano sia MPEG2 che AVC/MPEG4. Nello specifico "Dinosaur" e "Jay and Silent Bob" sono codificato in MPEG2 mentre "Eight Below" e "Great Raid" in AVC/MPEG4. Per tutti previsto audio PCM 5.1 a 48KHZ/16 bit non compresso.

Occorre tuttavia segnalare come per quanto riguarda "Dinosaur" da varie prove, (in anteprima) effettuate sul campo, non è emerso il minimo problema di encoding. Nello specifico ecco come la nota webzine americana dvdreview si è espressa in merito:

"So now "Dinosaur" comes to high definition and the transfer that Buena Vista Home Entertainment is serving up here is absolutely wonderful. Taken from the digital source, the image in this presentation is marvelously rich and sharply detailed. The print is entirely free of defects or blemishes, which is not surprising as it comes directly from the digital source. What is impressive form the first minutes is how vibrant and rich the colors are in this transfer, as we follow the dinosaur egg on its voyage. Add to it the incredible level of detailed put on display here and it is easy to fall in love with the film and the transfer instantaneously. Restoring the movie's original 1.85:1 widescreen aspect ratio, the transfer also has impressive contrast with very deep and solid blacks that give the image good visual depth. Highlights are perfectly balanced allowing the transfer to run the entire gamut of shades and hues. It is an impressive transfer that will convert any viewer to the advantages of high definition with ease as its improvements of the DVD version for example are readily visible and striking."
