Re: ENTERPRISE on Blu-Ray OFFICIAL Discussion Thread

The Digital Bits / Bill Hunt rates the video as B+

The A/V quality here is good Ė on par with either Season One or Two. The live action footage was still shot on 35mm film at this point in the show and was scanned in HD, while the visual effects rendering was upgraded to 720p for this season (upconverted for BD obviously). As before, the image is a little bit soft occasionally, with blacks that arenít quite as deep nor colors quite as vibrant as you might expect. For me, the visual effects are a bit of a mixed bag. The imagery is far more compelling given the ongoing war arc, but they do occasionally reveal the limitations of what was state-of-the-art at the time. But all this needs to be kept in perspective Ė if the A/V quality isnít quite up to current standards, the Blu-rays are still greatly improved over the DVDs and broadcast masters.
