I just bought the DVD of this, so I just popped it in to check out how it looks upconverted on my 4K tv. I think it actually looks pretty decent for a DVD.

According to my Oppo 205, the DVD's audio options are:
- Dolby Digital 2.0 48khz @ 437 kbps
- Dolby Digital 5.1 48 kHz @ 437 kbps
- Dolby Digital 5.1 48 kHz @ 625 kbps

Since they filmed it on videotape, I'd rather they just release a Blu-ray with the footage upconverted and upgrade the audio to a lossless format.

The movie version of The Wall is the most likely thing from Pink Floyd to get released on 4K UHD. However, since it didn't get a Blu-ray, I'm not going to hold my breath.

Just to make sure, you're aware of the (admittedly very expensive) box Pink Floyd: The Later Years? It has PULSE upscaled as you asked for on Blu with 5.1 master audio along with Delicate Sound of Thunder which IIRC was shot on film.

Live in Pompeii would be a possibility I spose, that was done on 35mm wasn't it?

PULSE in 4K would be both impossible and pointless.

What we really need on 4K is The Wall. Both the movie and the concert footage.

It just came on blu ray in that expensive box set and they cleaned up the rough footage and upgraded the audio.

I was not aware; thanks for the info. The price kept me from investigating the details of the release.

I believe in all possibilities and yes, PULSE would be a crowning achievement to see a UHD release. It was horribly shot on video but science Iím sure could make it look cleaned up some and give it incredible Atmos track.

I wouldn't be shocked if some parts of that release like the remix of Momentary Lapse of Reason see a separate release, Pulse perhaps as well.

Pulse wouldn't look any better on UHD than it does on DVD. The only excuse for releasing it on BD is the improved audio. If you're a Floyd obsessive, there are other things that releally deserve HD treatment (Pompeii, The Wall movie).

The problem with the Momentary Lapse remix is that it only appeals to completists and obsessives. It should have been released separately from the start.

Now I can't belive they restored Delicate Sound of Thunder only to bury it in a box set that only obsessives will buy. The video deserves to be released separately.

Agreed. In fact, I made a post about it a few years ago:

https://forum.blu-ray.com/showthread...ighlight=floyd

I'd kill to see The Wall and Pompeii, but the post-Waters live stuff has never appealed to me to begin with and there wouldn't be much benefit to Pulse.

I had the laserdisc version of Pulse, and it was awesome, audio and video! The audio on the later release DVD sucks! So, I hope the release the HD version with upgraded audio.

I've played the DVD on several different surround systems, and it's probably the best concert audio I've ever heard.

It was a big disappointment that Pompeii, which is included on the Early Years box set, is an upscale. As it doesn't belong to Floyd (Universal owns it), they weren't allowed to do a true HD master for the 1972 volume. Anyway, the version included is that horrible "director's cut".

One thing which is priceless, however, is that the accompanying CD faetures the songs remixed at their original speed. All versions of the movie are sped up from 24 to 25 fps, affecting the audio. The CD also includes an alternate take of Careful with that Axe, Eugene.
