Does NTSC Progressive Scan imply 3:2 pulldown capability?

    Hi,

    Having worked with digital video for years I am fully aware of the pitfalls of dealing with badly encoded NTSC video material. I am about to buy a new DVD player, A/V reciever and plasma screen, therefore progressive scan is a must have feature for this new equipment.

    In general, it is true to say that if a DVD player supports NTSC Progressive Scan it will also perform 3:2 pulldown where required?

    Thanks in advance.

    No.

    I'd expect they would say 2:3 or film mode or something else if it did. I'd be amazed though if a new prog scan dvd didn't. However you should not assume that all 2:3 capable devices will perform to the same standard.
