898Re: If anyone has a LaserDisc player...
- Mar 3, 2006It's a lot better than the needle-on-record technology that was RCA's
SelectaVision CED capacitance electronic disc format - not to mention
JVC's even less successful grooveless Video High Density disc format.
Picture quality on LaserDisc is still better than DVD and since
LaserDisc was an analogue format (the video was analogue but in later
years the audio was digital on some pressings) you don't have the
compression artifacts present in some DVD recordings.
The Criterion company used to put out fantastic LaserDiscs selecting
the best condition film prints and taking great care to lay them to
disc. Indeed it could be said that LaserDisc was the serious movie
It's sad that LaserDisc has been eclipsed by DVD.
