Playback material can come from any source. Tire best quality is generally obtained from film original that is transferred specifically for the scene involved and is color-compensated for video playback. Live camera original footage at 30 fps can be standards-converted and color-compensated with equal success. A jerky motion artifact will be noticed on 24 frame film material that was transferred to 30 frame video and then was standards-converted back to
24 frame video for video playback. This is an undesirable source of material.
Always test new or unfamiliar equipment. This includes new or untested TV screens and computers. This is a rapidly changing area and success is guaranteed only with the proper choice of equipment and with companies familiar with the latest advances.
