Heroes - ATSC HD broadcast vs HD DVD

Posted on Wednesday, October 24 2007 @ 09:11:14 CEST by

Firingsquad has published another interesting article this week, they compare the new HD DVD of Heroes season 1 with the quality of the broadcasted HD episodes.
The Season One box set features a 1080p VC-1 encoding and plenty of extras. I have little doubt that the HD DVD experience is superior to the conventional DVD, but there’s one unanswered question: is the HD DVD version the best way to experience Heroes?

First of all, NBC.com allows you to stream complete episodes at 640x360 resolution over the web. While you won’t be able to watch the entire season, it’s free and at 640x320, you’re getting better quality than standard definition TV. The real challenger will come from ATSC broadcast television. NBC broadcasts the entire season in 1080i HDTV, and owners of televisions featuring video processors capable of doing 1080i inverse telecine will be able to enjoy the full 1080p experience. And it’s free. So does the HD DVD box-set have something to offer? Well, to find out, I went to Best Buy and bought the HD DVD boxset.

Check it out over here.
