AV Rant #315: Video Quality

December 5th, 2012

Rob steps in for Liz because Tom can’t get up in the morning. This week, it is all about video quality and streaming. The new 4K resolution players are being announced. You’ve already heard of the one from Sony, but Red has one as well. A rebuttal to the “HBO is making me pirate” argument makes a surprising amount of sense. Even if we don’t like to hear it. Mitsubishi drops their RPTV line, Sony and Panasonic have record lows, and Rob is worried about what it all means. Netflix gets an exclusive with Disney and wants to be HBO while Chill.com wants to sell you DRM-free content. Redbox streaming is delayed (well, it was a leak to begin with so no one should be surprised). Tom previews his reviews of the Dirac HD Player app (increases the quality of your stock earbuds), I-MEGO Throne Gold headphones, Phiaton PS 210 BTNC bluetooth/noise canceling headphones, and RHA SA950i headphones.

    Yikes! I’ve gotta get a better mic. Sorry about the noise on my end, everyone 🙁

    I’m not sure what happened on the technical side this week. While we were on Skype, every time I made even the slightest sound, Tom’s audio would cut out in my headphones for a couple seconds, so I just had to guess at what he was saying half the time! Super annoying.

    And my own Audacity recording had the mic level spiking and going all weird sometimes. I had turned off Skype’s mic level control, so it shouldn’t have been that. But who knows? Skype did an update right before we recorded, so I’m going to blame them :p
