Just noticed that the release 'appears' to have been brought forward, according to Amazon UK the new date is 10 July and according to Amazon USA the date is 11 July, could it be that the long long wait is finally nearly over? Still not ordering it just yet, will have to wait and see if the release date changes yet again, hopefully not!

Realised that the title was not entirely clear and so have edited it! Sorry for any confusion!!

Re: PULSE DVD

Fincave,

It took me a minute to figure out what you were talking about.

Oh, that Pulse! Pink Floyd. Coming out now?

Guitar World said:
"GW: Speaking of live shows, why is the Pulse DVD coming out later this year, some 12 years after the Division Bell tour?

GILMOUR: It was out on VHS long ago. We had a lot of technical problems converting it to DVD. It was shot on video rather than film, which I now think was a mistake: it doesn't look very good when you enlarge it on a big screen television, which everyone seems to have these days. We'd been investigating all sorts of ways to digitally enhance the footage.

By the time we'd surmounted all the problems, it was way too late to make our November or December ['05] deadline. I didn't see any point in putting it out at the same time as my album (On An Island), so I asked that we put the release back until September".

Let's see... how many times have I been on a pre-order list for this DVD? :scratchchin:


This would almost be classified as a miracle wouldn't it? lol

The only drawback is it is 1.33:1 AR. I'll still buy it though... duh... bet you'd never figure that out huh? :sarcastic:

Now if this is the same thing it would be nice to have it on HD-DVD...

The Weinstein Company (via Genius Products)

Supports HD-DVD but no announced titles at this time.

TBA (based on CES announcements in January 2006) - Derailed, The Libertine, TransAmerica, Mrs. Henderson Presents, Wolf Creek, The Matador, Lucky Number Slevin, Breaking and Entering, Decameron, Young Hannibal, Last Legion, Scary Movie 4, Sin City 2, Pulse, Passion of the Clerks, Killshot, Awake, School for Scoundrels, Grind House
It's not all CAPS so I kinda wonder if it's the same PULSE.


EDIT: Nope... it's the Japanese horror film... not Pink Floyd. I wouldn't think PULSE would have been filmed in HD anyway unless there is someway to convert it to HD.

Me too I can't believe my eyes (and ears), my Pulse arrived today and its a huge anti-climax from a technical (sound and vision) perspective. I was at the concerts in London and had the VHS tape, from an artistic perspective it was a great performance. But by todays standards it's a mediocre concert DVD and I know understand why they were in no rush to release it, only for the die hard fans. Those wanting a great PF concert DVD are better off with the Roger Waters DVD.

It's ironic that its launched the same day as the Syd Barret announcement.

Hey Sonnie,

You'll like this one. Bass is better in this one than Roger Waters in the flesh. Good use of the surrounds in the rears. Voice is centered throught the three speakers up front, just like at a concert. Sound is not as good as Eagles in Melbourne, however, that was recorded at 1500 kb vs 640 for floyd.

Hope this helps!

P.S.

The next time you address me it better be with WAR EAGLE!:rofl:

No problem... okay... ROLL TIDE ROLL!

:neener:


I can't wait to get it. Maybe it will show up today or tomorrow.


Phil... have you figured out how to work that system of yours yet? lol Is it still subpar even in 4:3? Of course I know I'll get to see it soon for myself... just curious your further thoughts after learning how to operate your system... heehee :R

Being a perfectionist is a heavy cross to bear :help:
I found it acceptable at 4:3, but given the age and the use of video, as opposed to film, then the expectation shouldn't be too high. It's just after waiting all these years I was hoping for more. As DG states it's OK for smaller screens, but doesn't look so hot when you project a larg image.

Yup... couldn't resist! :devil: I changed it back but had to take out the one word. But you know I can't say those kinds of words you mentioned. It liked to have broke my fingers to type in back in there. :R I should have put all those under censorship... lol



So Phil, do you agree with that the bass is better than the Waters DVD too?

All you IB sub bass heads will love it: boomy, inarticulate, loud.
While we 2 channel guys will stick with RW: clean, precise, detailed.

Each to his own:devil:

Just ordered it. (Thank you, HTS!) I'll let you know what I think.

Realize that the concert was videotaped at standard resolution. According to one report, they didn't even have that tape to work with, but a copy at a lower resolution since the original had been erased. They did some processing to improve the video. I sure hope they paid as much attention to the audio.

No reviews yet? Really thought that at least Sonnie would have given us a lengthy and detailed write up of this dvd by now!

Huh... I just got mine in yesterday... it took forever. I actually thought it had been stolen or lost in the mail.

I'm sure I'll watch it sometime this week or weekend and I'll write a somewhat detailed review sooner or later. I generally like to watch these kind of DVDs a couple of times before I review them. This one is pretty long too.

I saw this Pulse DVD at Best Buy and almost picked it up, but decided to wait until you guys review it. The ball's in your court now!
