Re: DVD/Blu-Ray Coming November 17th

I can't wait to own all three new movies, XI, XII, and XIII, on blu-ray, its like when I was waiting for "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy to come out in theater then on DVD and special edition too. I anticipate some fun years ahead watching these movies as they come out!

Re: DVD/Blu-Ray Coming November 17th

Guys, I trawled the thread a bit looking for an answer to this, but didn't find anything I was too sure of, so I hope someone can answer this.

I know there are three versions of the take-home STXI, and I know the BluRay special edition comes with the 4 badges and the augmented reality holographic packaging. My question is, since I'm still stuck in the world of DVDs and don't plan on upgrading to BluRay soon:

What am I going to be missing out on if I pre-register for the DVD release from Amazon (they're offering it for cheap if you pre-order, and I have an Amazon VISA that I like racking up points on)? If I just go for the "basic" DVD, will I be missing out on all the deleted scenes and other special features, or what?

Thanks, everyone.

Re: DVD/Blu-Ray Coming November 17th

^ I think that if you look at the break-downs of the different sets here, you should find all of the answers to your questions.

For the short version, the description for the single-disc DVD is as follows:

The STAR TREK single-disc DVD is presented in widescreen enhanced for 16:9 televisions with Dolby Digital English 5.1 Surround, French 5.1 Surround and Spanish 5.1 Surround with English, French and Spanish subtitles. The single-disc DVD includes the commentary, “A New Vision” and the gag reel.
M', not Blu-Ray equipped - ordered the 2-disc DVD set

Re: DVD/Blu-Ray Coming November 17th

Thanks very much, M'Sharak. I'm really not pleased about it, but I think the extra featurettes (totaling 5!) on the Blu-Ray are going to make me upgrade my home player -- even though I really shouldn't be spending money on myself so close to the holidays.

Just pre-ordered on the BestBuy website - at least I'll be able to get the badges from the film ... which I haven't managed to find anywhere else.

Thanks again! Can't wait.

I got an email from Apple yesterday, and they are using Star Trek XI in their campaign for their new iMac. They mention the movie's available for pre-order on iTunes and that their new 27" screens are 2560 x 1400.

^ I've seen that mentioned in a couple of places -- TrekMovie's Twitter was one of them, and I just saw a thread in GTD about it.

Re: DVD/Blu-Ray Coming November 17th

This disc is going to cost me a few hundy. I need to buy a blu-ray player. Yeah, I have a PS3 but, I dunno, it's time to upgrade.

I don't think you should consider the cost of a new BD-player as part of the costs associated with this disc since you already can play it. You're just choosing to upgrade.

A PS3 is generally considered one of the best Blu-Ray players available. Nothing you can get for a "few hundy" is going to be much of an upgrade.

Australia: October 29th!
Hooray! I keep on thinking it's some kind of mistake but it's still listed. Moreover EZYDVD have the bluray listed for AU$12 cheaper than the 2 disc DVD set!

I wonder if the Australian Blu-ray will be region locked? Paramount Blu-rays usually are not. Can I wait, or should I import?
I should be able to tell you once I have mine, or this site might have it listed about then.

5.1 surround mix

The DVD & Blu-ray will both feature a 5.1 Surround mix.
The DVD will be Dolby Digital 5.1
The Blu-ray will be 5.1 Dolby TrueHD.
Jim Bolt a re-recording mixer at LA's Fox Studios says,
"On feature films such as Star Trek (2009) and Aliens in the Attic, when we are done with the theatrical mix, we do what is called a near-field mix, which is for the home release format. The biggest difference between 5.1 mixing for a theater and mixing for the home is the dynamic range. In a feature film you have a little more room to be dynamic with louder louds and softer softs. Mixing for the home 5.1 system requires a smaller range of the dynamics, it's not as much as a feature film."
"When we do a near-field mix, we set up near-field speakers in a dub stage to match a home theater environment...the speakers are about six to 10 feet from where you are sitting.
The quiet levels really have to come up to play as low level in the home. What was low level in the theater would get lost in the home theater market so you have to make up for that."
Star Trek was mixed at Fox Studios using all three dubbing theaters.
Post Magazine, October 2009, page 34-35


The Se7en Platinum Series - 1995 (2000 DVD release) has a very good feature on disc 2 called Mastering for Home Theater
video clips (including Audio Mastering, Video Mastering, Color Correction Demonstration and Telecine Gallery of 3 scenes with multi-angle/audio options that let you compare the old and new video transfers and DD 5.1 mixes),
The surround mix was done in 2000 for that DVD release by the same re-recording sound mixers who did the film's initial release.
Unlike current films which have both mixes done at the same time. Se7en came out initially at the start of the DVD format with surround sound and they may have just put on the theatrical mix since it was 'already mixed in 5.1'.
It's quite possible that the earlier Trek films such as up to Generations (1994) had their theatrical mix (not a near-field mix) on the Laserdisc and first release DVD and hence the Laserdisc that was talked about for it's dynamic range.

Oh man, so we're not going to hear that awseome "BANG" when they go to warp?

The sound mix is tailored to fit a smaller room, so it'll just be a slightly more intimate awesome "BANG" than it was in the theater.
