The Look and Sound of Perfect (HD-DVD)
"The Look and Sound of Perfect" is a promotional website for the HD-DVD consortium. On their website, you can download a bunch of 1080p and 720p movie trailers of all the latest HD-DVD movies and some that are on the way.
Even if they tried, their website could not have been designed any worse with huge amounts of annoying flash all over the place - I'm not even going to link to it, if you want to find it, Google it. Thankfully a good chap called Dave has created a page with links to all of the HD content on the website, which you can download in a much more friendly fashion. Head on over to Dave's Trailer Page and please give the guy a pat on the back if you ever see him.
We are including screenshots from the King Kong HD-DVD trailer which are simply out of this world. King Kong is the best example of extreme HD quality that we have seen so far and it should be one of the first HD-DVD's you buy if you want to show off your new 1080p setup to your friends.
These trailers are definitely up there in terms of quality - just as good as what Apple has on offer. The 1080p downloads are all 8Mbps, so prepare your Internet connection for some serious downloading. We'll provide some screenshots of the 1080p content from the website. Keep in mind they are compressed, so the quality is not going to be as good as the actual trailers but they'll give you a good idea of what is available. Click on the images below for the full 1080p screenshot.
In two words... Absolutely stunning!
