T2 boxset in "Dobermann" (1997):


...and you can see other laserdiscs - few second before, "Natural Born Killers", for example.

Yesterday I wrote an article about various versions of The Thing:

as this is THE place to find info about laserdiscs, I wonder if an owner of the Signature Collection could help me.

I'm trying to find out if the AC-3 track is the "real" one using the 4-track stem (or the 6-track magnetic tape master).

The best way to understand it would be to capture the AC-3 track itself, but I don't know if there is someone with the knowledge AND the technology AND the will to do that! :angel:

But there is another way to find it out; a surround system is needed, though.
Select the AC-3 track, and just go around 15m, when "Superstition" is playing; check if the song is playing from the surround speakers continuosly after Naul's shot, or just briefly only when the meeting room is shown.

Thanks in advance!

 Post subject: Re: The Matrix LD vs DVD
Posted: 25 Jul 2022, 16:35 

I resurrect (pun intended) this thread because I've found that The Matrix laserdisc screenshots from a TV, taken with a camera or a phone, are pretty different from the screenshots taken from a capture, that are very close to DVD.

Examples (from top DVD, LD capture, LD photos):
(taken from this video )
(taken from this photo )

please disregard the aspect ratio and take only in account color grading.

The most probable answer for this difference should be the autowhite of the camera/phone used to take the photo/video.

Now, can anyone with The Matrix laserdisc take a look at their discs and confirm or confute this?
Or with the Region 4 DVD hippiedalek talked about here?

Because, if it's not due to autowhite, and not to the display (first OLED, second plasma), then ***maybe*** there are two different versions around?

May I suggest to capture the same frames found on caps-a-holic?

Even if not exactly the same frame and/or not all of them, it could help to get the difference between laserdisc and digital video (DVD/HD-DVD/BD/UHD-BD)

Agree with signofzeta pretty much on everything; in particular, keep your laserdisc player "alive", playing some disc sometimes during the year - if you keep it in storage without use, it most probably will suffer of... something!

The only thing I do not agree is about lens cleaning; you can do it, but YOU MUST use isopropyl alcohol ONLY, AND NOT the usual alcohol you have at home, AND ONLY if the player is otherwise working well mechanically.

Hello, I completely forgot about this thread... :angel:

If someone is still interested, I'll manage to take some picture; by the way, it is NOT the one seen in the latest picture, but it was based on the Philips LDP600WS - think about a similar one, but with the size of HLD-X0 (more or less)!

IIRC this is the only prototype ever made, according to the project engineer who worked on it, Leonardo Chiariglione (yes, the same genius behind MPEG) - we talked about this years ago via email, but I can't find them anymore...

Anyway, I'm ready to part from it, and the money will be invested in a huge laserdisc capture project involving thousands title (more info soon).

How much should I ask for it?

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Hello. Thank you for informing. I'm very interested in Analog HD because there are a lot of missing videos, photos and information (lost media). Can you share device photo? Also, what is the production date and features of the device? Is there a model name?

Away from home right now, but I'll post pictures ASAP (next week for sure, most probably on tuesday or wednesday)

Yes, it has a model number but can't recall it, as well as year of production; IIRC it was HD-MAC/PAL/NTSC laserdisc player, can't remember if he can play CDs as well; pretty sure it has SCART output.

I'll provide all the info I can along with the pictures: STAY TUNED!
