Many purchased the sets of the Trek movies on Blu-ray. the amount of digital noise reduction on those video masters for Blu-ray left the HD image with waxy faces and little grain. Entirely too much DNR processing. This article shows why Paramount needs to cash in and re-release on Blu-ray the Trek movies while the format still has some weight behind it. Is the end near for physical media? 2 specific quotes: PricewaterhouseCoopers All the films Original Camera Negatives can be rescanned to 4k (except ST:TMP was already mastered to 4k). The 2009 & 2013 films were done digital intermediate at 2k so it is moot to remaster these at 4k but they may upscale the digital intermediate masters. The new 4k masters will be good for 4 future new releases: A new Blu-ray set, the standalone Blu-ray movies, and a future 4k streaming & 4k unknown future physical media set. I believe that 2016 will be the year they get released so the sets can sell through 2018. related: this older thread discussed the Blu-ray sets: Movies on BluRay: Worth it?
