Panic Room - Layer Change?


Active Member
Finally sat down to watch Panic Room last night, great film with crisp audio and picture (considering most of the film was in half light). What I did not notice was any layer change ? Do superbit movies soemhow get over this issue ?

It would be good if they did, but no they still have layer changes. Columbia are generally pretty good at placing layer changes. Can't remember the last one of their DVD's I saw that had a really bad one.:)


All superbit titles feature...what they call 'seamless' layer break (no visible pause between layer changes).

SuperBit titles use "seamless" layer changes. DVD-V specs call for a non-seamless layer break, in which all data is dumped from a player's buffer memory when a layer change occurs. This does not occur with SuperBit titles, allowing transparent layer changes with careful authoring. SuperBit titles are therefore outside standard DVD specs, although modern players have no difficulty playing them.

All the superbit titles are soon for release on region 2 and are avalible for play for £17.99 from the 14/10. I am going to get The mask of Zorro, because I am sad.:p
