    Bare with me if this seems an obvious question.
    But what IS Progressive Scan and what does it do and what are its advantages (and disadvantages!)??

    Haven't had a cinema system for several years now and though I keep thinking about one haven't got round to it.
    In the mean time loads of new things keep appearing of which I have not idea about most of them!!

    On the same lines, what is a good Region 1 website to order from?

    Other questions posted in relevant forums.

    A regular TV picture is interlaced and is composed of two fields. One field contains all the even scan lines. One field contains all the odd scan lines. Each field is presented sequentially. That's why you can see the screen flicker.

    With progressive scan, both fields (i.e. all scan lines) are presented simultaneously yielding a non-interlaced picture which, as you might expect, is better.

    Hope that makes sense :)


    For R1 DVDs, I use www.futureent.com and www.play.com and www.cd-wow.com
