High Def Hqv Benchmark Disc Finally Available

by Paul Strauss

One of my biggest frustrations with high definition television has been the lack of decent test materials for verifying image quality. Up until now, pretty much all of the test and benchmarking discs out there came in lowly 480i resolution, designed for playback on standard DVD players.

HQV Benchmark High Definition

Fortunately, Silicon Optix has answered the call by releasing high definition versions of their popular HQV Benchmark discs. The $20 discs are available in both Blu-ray and HD DVD formats and recorded at 1080i resolution, the benchmarks are designed for testing for noise, resolution, “jaggies” and other annoying image artifacts to see if your video processing is up to snuff.

So if you’ve wanted to put your new HD equipment through its paces, or just to test out the latest gear at the electronics store, now is your chance.
