The Semi-Official Ultra HD 4K Thread - Page 6

post #251 of 322
Know what to expect with 4k transfers.

Recent stuff looks super slick and clean.

Older films with grain can feel odd with grain feeling like it's swarming around. I felt that with the Crouching Tiger 4k, which is often gorgeous but has some really distracting grain.

LEON looks fantastic and consistent though.

A surprise, to be sure.  But, a welcome one.

Really looking forward to see how The Prestige looks, and I'm pretty sure Nolan isn't going to mess it up. The blu-ray of Batman Begins was limited to the size of a HD-DVD, so hoping that gets some love as well.

I want to be fooled.

If your internet provider's service is robust, the apps on the LG OLED TV also supports 4K VUDU and Netflix.

Didn't Silence of the Lambs get a new 4K transfer?
post #258 of 322

yes it has

 

I believe VUDU has it available right now.

 

Not sure when the disc gets a release though.

It might not. Criterion has the disc rights right now and they don't make UHD yet. I mean unless MGM can still do their own. Im not an expert in blu-ray law.

post #260 of 322

criterion still holds disc rights for it???

 

edit:  oh, they have a new bleu-rae coming out in Feb!   nice cover!

post #261 of 322
Got my TV back last night. They actually sent me a brand new TV. So good on Sceptre for that. If they had sent me a brand new TV and it was a Samsung, that would have been incredible.

Why is it always the same offenders in terms of adopting a new home video format?  Just punch up the list of suspects from the transition to DVD and subsequently to Blu-Ray, and it's the same bunch of assholes.

 

I don't fucking get it.

 

On another note, the Xbox One S was on sale for 179.00 on Amazon a few weeks ago.  Snagged one.  Have about a dozen films, have only watched some of the Attenborough documentary and Fury Road so far.  I was impressed, but not as much as I thought I would be by Fury Road.  The documentary was jaw dropping, on the other hand.

They fucked up the HDR mastering on Fury Road.

Amazon has 4K HDR stuff, too, though the way the app is organized makes finding it confusing sometimes. I accidentally watched The Big Sick in 1080p this weekend because the 4K version was in a different category.

 

Also the black level adjustment is locked out in the apps for some reason.

I find no amusement in the situation. 

 

**On the streaming 4k point, there are few ISPs capable of providing the type of sustained output needed for true 4k, let alone 4k with HDR, and fewer still customers have paid the money for that type of connection. You'll get something significantly better than vanilla 1080p, but nowhere close to what a UHD Blu-Ray player is capable of. 

post #272 of 322
Due to compression, 4k streaming barely competes with 1080p blu-ray, let alone UHD.
post #273 of 322
I dunno.

I think 4k netflick has looked really nice for me

no it's not on the level of a UHD disc, but still!

YMMV may vary depending on connection quality.
post #275 of 322
I think my connection is pretty solid.
post #276 of 322

I'm reading that Netflix 4K tops out at about 15.5 Megabits per second (Mb/s). 4K disc bitrates max out at 108 Megabit per second.

 

1080p Blurays max out at 40 Megabits per second. If you want to be generous and say that the h.265 HEVC codec is twice as efficient as h.264, that still makes Netflix 4k a bit under the standard 1080p disc bitrate.

 

There's sound bitrate to consider, too. Netflix considers that a much lower priority.

post #277 of 322

My connection usually pulls around 120 mbps and I generally find 4K streaming to be slightly preferable to Blu-ray, if only because a lot of 4K options have HDR or Dolby Vision grading.

IIRC, Netflix doesn't do anything more than 5.1 sound, and that's only if you're hardwired.  If you're wifi-ing it, I think 2.1 is all they give you.

No, you can get 5.1 over wifi.

Got my soundbar delivered this morning, and it's sitting next to my new TV stand and my new 4k blu ray player.  My LG OLED arrives next Wednesday.

 

Salivating.

How do you look up netflix settings?  This information is proving difficult to track down.

I don't know but I do everything over wifi and im getting 5.1 Dolby Plus through my receiver. 

post #283 of 322
Netflix does 5.1 as well as Dolby Atmos, depending on the device and setup.

I believe OKJA is available in 4k dolby vision and Atmos

h.265 is significantly more efficient than h.264. Especially for streaming

 

The whole point of h.265 is that it's higher quality at lower bitrates.

I can confirm.  I can't remember which titles, but I have an Atmos system and compatible films play their audio in that format.

My 4K from Netflix and Amazon looks pretty good, but holy cow I must have "4K'd it up" when I got my TV back, because I suddenly got a "You are at 90% of your data" with about 6 days left. I normally never get that message, unless it's like the day before or day of the last day of the month.

I dread the day when Comcast starts caps around here.

Yup, it sucks. We started getting nailed for this out here in Vegas about 5 months ago. Gave us 3 months grace period, which I used to find out that Cox internet is pretty much the only decent provider in town from a speed standpoint, so we’re stuck.

So now I long for the days that I used to complain about spending $90 a month on internet service, instead of the $140 I spend now for exactly the same damn service.
post #289 of 322

yeah, the comcast in my area has a 1 TB/month cap too

I... never thought I'd be happy to have Spectrum.

I am not really into cults of personality, nor do I believe in prayer, but I will pray for Elon Musk to get that low-orbit satellite array into orbit so we can all be freed from these monopolistic Telco scumbags.

I believe Guardians vol 2 was Disney's first 4K UHD blu-ray release

post #297 of 322
They're being considerate of the filmmakers. When they do, Whedon will be involved in the transfer. Gunn has said they won't do GUARDIANS 1 4K without him.
post #298 of 322

Yeah, Gunn was annoyed that he was given no time to do work on the 4K for Vol 2

post #299 of 322

Man, I'm really hoping for a 4k release of Ragnarok.  Dem colors and bright lights.

I downloaded the soundtrack from Google Play a few weeks ago...great driving music.
