Vudu's HDX Streaming Quality "Hands-Down The Best"

vuduweb_540x360(2).jpgSkeptical about Vudu's new HDX streaming quality? I was too, but according to the fine folks at CNET HDX is "hands-down the best internet-delivered" video they've ever seen. And it's the "first to noticeably outclass DVDs". Of course the trade-off is you won't be able to watch HDX movies immediately. Because it uses a variable bit-rate to improve the picture quality, you'll have to wait while your Vudu analyzes the entire movie to figure out exactly where it has to ramp up the bit streaming. Although there was some graininess in certain scenes of tested flicks, the Blu-ray playback of the same movies produced identical defects. Pretty impressive I have to say.

I'm really interested to see how Hd downloads progress, but so far it still seems too far off to be a viable competitor to something like Blu-ray. The stream buffering and overall lead time, not to mention the requirement of additional hardware and a broadband connection fast and stable enough to stream the content, is just too far off for the average consumer to really take full advantage of this. I've been working with Warner on some blu-ray projects and they're certainly watching it closely however.
