The author needs to learn the difference between resolution, compression and luminance. He seemed to use them interchangeably.

But it appears that China is not going to let the manufactureers "play the numbers game" concerning their specs - about time someone called them out on the carpet.

Yep, I agree with you on that. I wish there was better consistency on both the set specs as well as the programing delivery here as well.

My comment was aimed at these "technical" staff writers that put down a bunch of goofy stuff that make little sense to someone that is familiar with the subject, but sounds impressive to those who aren't. I'm constantly amazed they get paid for it. That article was particularly goofy for me as the author basically went on a resolution and compression rant under the guise of China cracking down, leaving the impression of if China, why not the US? and ending up telling us the actual crack down was over brightness not resolution at all. That's the way propaganda works sprinkle a bit of truth in with misleading statements.

Well lets see . . I have seen contrast ratio's of :

10,000 to 1

15,000 to 1

50,000 to 1

AND . . . . . .

100,000 to 1

I am not sure on that last one that the rods (or is it cones) in the eye could see that.

Like the audio spec's 20hz to 20,000 hz - very nice except I believe human hearing stops around 17,000 so I guess my dog would like it.

As you know I read a lot of news articles in an effort to bring a few to HDF for discussion. And lately one out of every three is writing a retraction to a previously written story to "correct mistakes"

You are taking my comments as aimed at the author of the article as opposed to you, right?

Have you seen the commercial on HDNet for "What's Kewl at CES 2007" where one manufacturer claims 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio?

Unfortuately I don't get HDnet but I would love to have seen it. What is that? the CR for a Super Nova Explosion?
