Re: TNG remastered in HD? It CAN be done.

This isn't like TOS, which only had three seasons to work with. TNG had seven. It would take years to remaster the whole thing for HD. I highly doubt this would bring in more profit than they'd spend on doing it.
I dunno, TNG DVD sets sell pretty well.
Still?

I'm sure someone is crunching the numbers on it.
Remastering seven seasons' worth of episodes would cost millions. Would the resulting revenue (from things like Blu-Ray releases) bring in enough to cover that? I'm not optimistic...

many of the effects used film elements, these could simply be recomposited rather than recreated from scratch.
Really? I thought all effects for TNG (and DS9 and VOY) were done on videotape only.
