Xbox Live Video Marketplace movies (720p resolution VC-1 encoded) look good

I did my own encode from the HD-DVD source and the result was similar.

And

How this was done:

The output of the Xbox was captured via Component, and saved as uncompressed RGB files at 59.94 FPS 720p. This does disadvantage the 1080p content, but not for most home displays. The files were then analyzed using VQM software from Compression.Ru. Other analysis was done using AVISynth, and VirtualDub.



I bet the studios are thrilled with Microsoft if this is actually true!
Is this the dawn of the new age of piracy - all of a sudden that promise about ICT looks like it might be a bit hollow. :(

Why would any one be bothered, you can get a higher resolution (1080i) out of component on any HD player on any format. :confused: ICT only stops 1080p via component at the minute
