Info on CinemaPerfect HD engine specs needed.
I have been using the Philips BDP8000 installed recently. My observations so far are that it plays DVDs better than my previous BD-V players, as far as colour, contrast, noise, and sharpness are concerned. It is also very fast even when loading BD-Java discs which normally take a long time to run.
I have searched the Internet thoroughly looking for a more detailed technical description of the CinemaPerfect HD engine that is installed in the player, but at no avail.
I would be grateful if any member of the forum or a Philips moderator can supply these informations or a link to that effect.
I am a movie buff, with interest in audio and video. Any input is appreciated. Thanks.
Can't find anything either, just a very short and brief passage:
CinemaPerfectHDCinemaPerfectHD is an advanced video processing technology from Philips that is used to enhance picture quality
•Three dimensional noise reduction filters to reduce video noise and digital noise
•High quality de-interlacing engineto reduce „jaggies‟ in the conversion from interlacing video to progressive scan video
•Hue, luma and saturation control for more natural colors and vivid images
•Only available in BDP7500 MKII and 8000 series
and it's a technology that s proprietary owned by Philips.
anyway, hope this helps.
It's very kind of you, but those are more or less the more mundane info supplied on Philips sites and press-releases. Unfortunately it doesn't say who manufacturers the chipset and its main technical specifications.
At any rate, thanks for your effort and good will!
By the way, I am using the player for 2D playback only.
no prob. guess what you looking for it s too commercial for Philips to disclose. so it s uneasy to get an answer from them i guess.
There should be no reason why Philips wouldn't want to disclose more detailed specs. The Qdeo processor used in the BDP9600, for example, has generous info from Marvell itself (please read at http://www.marvell.com/technologies/qdeo/)
Most hobbyists are keen to know a bit more about product performance and specs, hence the numerous reviews being sought every time a new player turns up for sale.
I was in fact looking for the 9600 to be released on these shores but it never did. It seems that neither the 8000 nor the 9600 were to be manufactured locally. As a result the 8000 is very expensive given current BD-V players price range.
I have had 3 consecutive Blu-Ray players so far, skipping generations 1.0, 1.0 and 2.0. Disregarding 3D, which I will not use, it seems to me that the BD-V playback is identical in most players, including the Oppo, which a friend of mine has. If differences exist, they must be negligible or fully compensated by the monitor or TV adapters.
Resources and DVD playback, on the other hand, will vary enormously. Thus, differences in performance still account on our decisions to upgrade. The BDP8000 has, in my opinions, the best scaling for 4:3 letterbox video that I have ever had at home. I still have a number of movies on disc with this format and for that reason this feature is still important, you see?
