blu-rays are an unnecessary gimmick
reject false modernity, re-embrace DVDs and VHS

Reject dvd, embrace laserdisc


nobody uses blu-rays


VHS is better for analog video


what about magnetic tapes XD
There, thread over.


isn't that just vcr tho


Magnetic tapes still have the best size and longevity of all storage medium and are used by nearly every professional sysadmin for physical backups.

Video Cassette Recorder refers to tapes in cassettes thus doesn't include open reel Video Tape Recorders.


Did anybody ever try to make laser tape ?


>Having discs that can store video on 1080p and 4k is a gimmick
The absolute state of /tech/


high definition is a corporate gimmick to make you buy shiny new screens that are able to display the shiny new format instead of, you know, just focusing on high quality for the formats that are already there
i'd rather take a properly encoded SD video stream, tried and true from decades of usage in TV over some vomit looking ULTRA-HIGH DEFINITION (tm) snake oil for middle class consumers


Standard Definition is dated especially when you don't have a CRT naturally softening edges. The NeXTstation from 1990 had a resolution of 1120 × 832 here you going on about 640 × 480 being enough in 2022.




>CRT naturally softening edges
Will we ever have flatscreens that look even half as crisp as CRTs?

lol nostalgiafags love posting myths about crts that only applied to the highest end


>Aren't LD movies already showing lots of artifacts due to aging?


LD artifacts due to age is disc rot. Rot comes from manufacturing defects where the layers are not perfectly air tight where if the disc was made to spec it should still be good but there are a number of discs that were not.

The CRT on the first pic has low brightness (or degraded phosphor) in a bright room. The 4k Samsung monitor I purchased with my pc doesn't even come close to the color vibrancy of an unused CRT I got a few months ago. I made a pic of both, but the CRTs image looks less blurry and completely smooth irl.
What Samsung says about my monitor:
<This UHD monitor gives you 64 times more color than conventional monitors–an incredible 1 billion colors. That means that movies, games, and other multimedia content appear detailed, natural looking, and extremely realistic. More colors also ensure a smoother transition between different tones for a richer, more accurate picture.
