Australia List of 1080i and Lossy Australian Blu-Rays

1080i Releases


When adding to the list, please be sure to confirm the 1080i status directly from the Disc, and not from the Cover art, as this can be incorrect and not reliable. Feel free to also ammend the Database listing for the title, if it is currently incorrect by using the Edit function (this will be approved at a later time by Admin).

Television Shows natively filmed in 1080i (Example: Underbelly), do not need to be listed, as this was how they are correctly presented. Re-releases featuring Alternative Art, but the same 1080i master (Example: Once Were Warriors) also do not need to be listed unless their disc has been remastered / updated to 1080p.


























Notes:

Housebound - Filmed in 25fps
Underbelly (Series) - Filmed in 25fps
Slither - 1080i60
Catching Milat - Filmed in 25fps
Gallipoli - Possibly Filmed in 25fps
Black Sheep / Severance - Severance Only
Wallace and Gromit: The Collection - Filmed in 25fps

Not in Database:

Sepultura - Metal Veins

n00b question. I know 1080i is worse than 1080p. Why? What's the difference between them? Is it noticeable while watching a movie?

If a film is filmed at 24 frames per second and then encoded at 25fps (on Blu-ray that's done by 1080/50i which is 50 frames per second displaying half the information at a time) the end result is that the film runs 4% faster and can (depending on whether or not the studio fixes the pitch) result in a pitch increase of 4%.

This goes into plenty of detail: http://www.michaeldvd.com.au/article...palspeedup.asp

Apart from not representing the film the way it's intended for those of us with quite picky ears it can be incredibly distracting because every bit of the soundtrack is wrong. With 12 notes in a scale that means each note is 8.33% apart so with a pitch increase of 4% everything is now not a "real" note. The end result is anyone with perfect pitch will pull their hair out as they're forced to listen to the soundtrack.

Between that and the jitter caused by the incompatible framerates I was a very early adopter of importing DVDs from NTSC countries etc for their correctly pitched audio and complementary frame rates.

1080i isn't necessarily 'worse' than 1080p. I've seen a few 1080i releases that looked perfectly fine.

Quote:
The difference lies in how the display lines are scanned. While both resolution standards display 1080 vertical lines, with 1080i the lines are "interlaced" - meaning the odd-numbered lines are painted on the screen first followed by the even-numbered lines. With 1080p, the lines are displayed consecutively in a single pass, as opposed to the odd-numbered lines alternating with the even-numbered lines.
It's all a bunch of techo mumbo jumbo.. you really just need to make your own mind up by comparing a couple of releases if you get the chance.

Atex pretty much laid it out right. The Audio on 25fps releases is probably the biggest issue.

I assumed it was worse because I always heard it referred to negatively. But I think I get it now. It affects the audio more than the video. I can see how that could be a problem.

How does one determine if a disc is actually 1080i? Does it have to be checked in a PC or something?

Depending on your Player, I think it can show up using the Info button on the remote.

Can't get it to show up on my PS4. Ditto for my bottom-of-the-barrel Warehouse Blu-ray player.

If I have any local movies marked as 1080i on the back cover I'll still mention them in this thread. I just won't be able to confirm the discs though.

I was thinking earlier that this thread could also be for local releases that don't include lossless audio tracks, only lossy. What do you think LC?

Might as well.. I'll use the reserved post for that list. Will probably have to do it in list form rather than BD tag, otherwise the thread might get a bit image heavy.

One thing that's important to note as some releases are 1080/50i such as The Way Way Back and subjected to PAL speed up whereas others like Slither are 1080/60i so don't run shorter or have any pitch change.

Yeah there will eventually need to be a time where people will have to click on or ask about certain releases for more details. We can't catch everything but we try to atleast cut down on some confusion.

Thanks to everyone for listing titles and adding to this thread. Thanks! I didn't mean to cause a hassle for LordCrumb though and the thread could very quickly get out of hand if music and documentary blu-rays are added (because I imagine many of them would be 1080i). I appreciate the list in progress and hope more people add to that list, but perhaps the best use for this thread might be if somebody watches a new/recently released blu-ray and notices that it's in 1080/50i, they could list it on this thread.

That way, if another terrible blu-ray comes out such as the Australian release of KILLING THEM SOFTLY (1080i, 1.78 ratio instead of 2.40) other people here can find out about it quickly and not have to waste their money on it.

The first release of Scream was 1080i too I believe.

A few others:

The Viral Factor
I Am Bruce Lee
Siberian Education


I might have a few more.. the worst thing is, half of them still say 1080p on the back cover specs. Can be bring forth some kind of class-action lawsuit for false advertising and force these distributors to remaster and provide us with free replacements? Universal, Vendetta and Accent are definitely the worst offenders here.
