    Hi Folks,
    Does Anyone know what Panasonic's Digital Cinema Reality circuitry does?
    I've just bought a PT-L501 which doesn't have this feature. Should I have forked out a bit more for the 701 which does have it? Or is it marketing just hype?
    Thanks.

    Well it can only do a couple of things.
    Hide video line structure by interpolating extra lines to "fill in" the line structure visible on large displays using video res material.

    Deinterlace to generate a prog scanned "full frame source" depending on how the system detects the field arrangement ( reffered to as the cadence or some such by the bearded types) it can recreate a "realish" 24fps/25fps image from film originated material and hide a disparate field source ( ie stuff shot on interlaced video). Alternatively like most of the engines on most domestic gear it can screw the picture up bigo time!
