…μάλιστα και η εξήγηση τα πρώτα Samsung Blu-Ray players που κυκλοφορήσαν είχαν πρόβλημα με το chip Genesis (scaler chip) για να δούμε τι θα γίνει…
Article said:First off is news that early Samsung BD-P1000 Blu-ray players shipped with a chip problem, according to AVGuide.com (via HDBeat), which spoke to Sony and Samsung execs about the issue.
Don Eklund, executive vice president of advanced technologies at Sony Pictures, noticed that the player's image did not match the quality of the master tapes from which the Blu-ray titles were encoded. He contacted Samsung, whose engineers determined that the noise-reduction circuit in the player's Genesis scaler chip was enabled, causing the picture to soften significantly.
According to Jim Sanduski, senior vice president of marketing for Samsung's Audio and Video Products Group, "Samsung is currently working to revise the default settings on the noise-reduction circuit in the Genesis scaler chip to sharpen the picture. All future Samsung BD-P1000 production will have this revision and we are working to develop a firmware update for existing product."
This is definitely interesting news, and one has to wonder how many units this infected. Has anyone experienced this problem, or something similar?
