The Secrets Blu-ray Player HDMI Benchmark - Part 2

ARTICLE INDEX

Introduction

Our first HDMI Benchmark article generated a lot of feedback and support from our readers, but also a lot of skepticism. (Read Part 1 of the HDMI Benchmark)

The most common thing we heard from skeptics was a form of "I can't see a difference between players" or "Benchmark numbers don't mean anything if you can't see it in the real world". One of the reasons that we used CIE1994 dE numbers for our results is that the CIE1994 formula is based on what the human eye can see. Numbers below the 1-1.5 range are differences that are not visible, and beyond that they are.

We had another idea for a test that we thought would be of interest to our readers as well, which we will present today.
