Testfilm description - It is not possible to view 1920x1080 films through the internet due to bandwidth restrictions. We decided to show cut-out parts from the 16mm testfilm, in full resolution. Because all HDTVs treat all standard-quality films with a "de-interlace" we wanted to show how much that degrades the image quality.


The most accurate comparison it the comparison to the images that are de-interlaced. It shows the difference that is shown by a HDTV, all flatscreen TVs treat all DVDs with de-interlace.
