Default "Deep Colour" Technology

I have recently read about the new "Deep Colour" technology that has already been applied to some games. The colour bit rate will be 16-bit instead of the standard 8-bit although i havent heard when this will be applied to Blu-Ray movies. Will new equipment be required? I know new HDMI cables will be as some currently cant handle the bandwidth.

Does anyone know more details on this issue?

Lightbulb Deep Color, etc. in the near future...

Hi JSmith,

I'm just like you and trying to keep in touch with the latest.

I don't know if you've seen this link that I already posted in another thread, regarding the newer HDMI version 1.4 specs with support for ultra high def resolution (4K x 2K), extensive 3D support, Audio Return Channel, High Speed HDMI Ethernet Channel, and more...

* Here it is again: http://www.areadvd.de/hardware/2008/hdmi_versions.shtml

-> You might want to use your Google toolbar 'Translation' feature for that one.

Regards,
Bob

You. YOU. You did it again.

Argh, me hates German


It is worth noting that Deep Colour won't work with any HD-DVD.

Also, the requirements are quite novel:

A HDMI 1.3 cable

A display device that supports Deep Colour (I don't know if anything except CRT projectors* exist for that matter)

A Deep Colour compliant Blu-Ray player

Deep Colour compliant source material


* In theory, a CRT projector supports an unlimited amount of colours.

Every Panasonic Plasma I've looked at over the last year said it supports deep color.

Yes. But without any Deep Colour compliant material that feature is senseless.

Do you think the deep colour technology will be encoded into the next generation of remasters for catalogue titles?

Hey guys, for your information, that link I previously provided on HDMI version 1.4 specs; I know it is in German, but I also mentioned that you have to use Google toolbar "Translation" wep page feature, duh.
Don't you guys know how to use it?

* By the way, Deep Color is now 32-bit, but will go to 48-bit in the new HDMI version 1.4, I think...

I might be wrong, but I think la sconosciuta hhhhdvd had deep color, maybe somebody who bought the title knows better.
