Quote from: PONIES;59183I don't know how many sporting events are actually at a native 60 FPS; however of the various ESPN and Fox feeds I've viewed, CBS, SportsNet, Pac-12, NBC, etc. always blow them away in the quality department. It's no contest. I don't really notice a temporal difference between 720p60 and 1080i60 content, but the resolution difference is abundantly clear.Yes, sports are shot at 60 frames per second, as are many live events. With a 720p picture, you're seeing an entirely new frame every 60th of a second, providing better motion detail. At 1080i, you're only seeing every other line refreshed at each 60th of a second. At that point, either your TV, cable, or satellite box is doing some kind of interpolation (guessing) to create a full frame. So, you're not getting 30 frames per second with 1080i, you're getting 60 half-frames per seconds, with the missing content being artificially created on the fly. The gaming analogy doesn't really fit.
And this is coming from a hardcore PC gamer that can spot 30 FPS console garbage and a video game running at 60 FPS from a mile away.
Quote from: PONIES;59181This is incorrect.How about sports?
Very little content is actually 60 FPS. Most of it has a native framerate of either 23.976 frames per second for scripted high budget material or 29.970 frames per second for documentaries/news/reality shows/etc.
Quote from: PONIES;59181Therefore, for most content, 1080i has 1080p detail upon de-interlacing. 1080i60 video de-interlaces into 1080p video at up to 30 frames per second.Deinterlacing hardware and software can do a good job, but it also compromises the picture. The wikipedia entry on this is actually pretty good.
720p doesn't suffer from interlacing artifacts but interlacing artifacts shouldn't be a problem for anyone with an even remotely competent de-interlacing hardware.
Quote from: PONIES;59172So, to summarize:
480i/p - terrible
720p - mediocre
1080i/p - good
4K/Ultra HD - great
Hope this helps. :wave:
