Default The 24p update for HD-DVD Toshiba

The 24p for our platinums HD-DVD Toshiba translation via Babel Fish

Wednesday May 9
By Richard CZAPLA


All the owners of reader HD-DVD awaited it, it arrives finally, the update allowing platinums of living room to leave a signal in 24p.

For recall, the films in HD-DVD as well as in Blu-Ray are encodés of 24 images per seconds (24p) but leave the readers into 60 Hz for a question of posting of the no-claims bonus (which them are in 60 Hz). The fact of posting of the 24 images per seconds in 60 Hz causes what one calls an effect of judder which makes the fluidity much worse than of the Stake or the original 24p.

The update should be available towards the end of this month, for the happiness of all the compatible owners of diffusers 24p which will benefit then from a perfect marriage.

Yeah.

Actually I did better following the link and reading it in French - and I don't speak French.

But what model player (platinums) is it talking about? It has to be only the XA2 and A2-20, the only two players that output in 1080p.

As I very was very astonished by this information, I asked for confirmation to person in charge HD DVD Européen at Toshiba (Olivier Van Wynendaele).

Here what it confirmed to me today: the support of the exit 24p is well planned for the XE1 via an update of the firmware for the end of September. The advanced interactivity is not really a problem for an exit 24p.


Go, in gift, with the agreement of Toshiba, planning concerning the updates to come here for the XE1:
- at the end of May, new firmware which will improve the compatibility of titles HD DVD with the turntable
- at the end of June, new firmware which will bring the functionalities networks (for connected titles HD DVD)
- at the end of September, firmware which will bring the 24p and High Bitrate Audio (transmission of compressed flows of the advanced audio codecs in HDMI 1.3 for an external decoding in the amplifiers of new generation
)

I recommend to you to pay attention to (distort) information which circulates so quickly on the fabric...

It looks like it's been finally announced (without a translation at least). Toshiba, via firmware upgrade will allow the XA2 and A20 to output in 24p.

Like it was mentioned above, September appears to be the date.

I suppose the Xbox 360 add-on will not be receiving this feature?

Announcement
By Henning Molbaek
FIRST PUBLISHED Jul 2, 2007
Coming in early September, Toshiba will add an enhanced performance function to its HD-XA2 and HD-A20 HD DVD players by offering the capability for users to update the firmware of their players allowing playback of film content in 1080p/24 frames per second, or 24p. Movie films are traditionally captured at 24 frames per second and Toshiba's HD DVD players will be able to maintain this frame rate allowing consumers to enjoy movies in their native form.

No doubt great news for the serious home-theater owners out there.
