Re: Robocop 4k $7.99 bluray remastered

I just watched this movie the other day because I want to see the new remake. Classic movie even with its cheezy acting.

I was flipping channels the other day and Robo Cop was on. The cheezy special effects looked stellar with a OTA antenna.

LOL

4k remastered means instead of having a lot of "extras," content they are going to use all of the BR disc for enhanced quality. So they will have higher bitrates such as 35MBps-38MBps instead of the usual 25-30MBps. A better picture overall but works best with Sony products such as their Bravia soon to be released series.

Re: Robocop 4k $7.99 bluray remastered

It's very misleading to say 4k as it is not. It will still be only 1080p at a higher bitrate any good display will work it won't look "better" on a new Sony.

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900

I guess the name of the game is sell more units and slapping 4K on anything will sell more units. The same way HD is used for everything.

Re: Robocop 4k $7.99 bluray remastered

My understanding is they remastered the film at 4k and used that as the source transfer for this blu-ray disc. Hopefully this release will make up for the less than adequate original blu-ray release. It's a tad bit misleading, but the source will matter when it's rendered in post-processing at 1080p.

I didn't know 4k video could fit on blueray. How much gigs does blueray take?

Mastered in 4K means all the transfers and editing/restoration was do in 4K. From a standpoint of visual arts this makes since. I work on a larger canvas so when I shrink the image's resolution the imperfections are also shrunk.

One of the sony reps explained it as sony mastered the films. They know the compression used to shrink down the film so their players can upscale the movies back to a better "near 4k" resolution with less artifacts.
