DVD re-mastered
show user profile  zeefusion
I keep seeing these old films being advertised saying they have been re-mastered and now on HD. Surely if they have been shot in old PAL/NTSC then blowing them up to HD only makes them look blurry/noisy?

They say they have colour corrected it and made it much richer etc etc and the sound has improved. What have the actually done? Is it all a bunch of crap?

Also animations such as the new lion king has been remastered in a diamond edition, what's the fuss all about?

The original film reels are faaaar bigger than HD resolution so they make it from the original from scratch.

Not sure about the remastered malarky though :)

re-mastered just means they made a new master from the original print.

Yup.....rescanned from film,...and often they fix film artifacts,....restore color to spec...etc..etc.
Often remixing/tweaking audio as well.
Debate on some of it as purists want the scratches, artifacts..etc.....

Cool thanks, does it actually make a difference? would a lot of it go un-noticed do you think?
