Not sure how 48fps translates to the blu-ray world but what should we expect to see when The Hobbit is released on blu-ray?

That and... [In reply to] Can't Post

Blu-ray discs would be hard pressed to fit a nearly 3hr movie on one disc with both 48fps and 3D, which is 4 times as much disc space required compared to regular 2D 24fps blu-ray movies (1080p). They might be able to squeeze it on one with the right compression and have just one language...or they could spread it over two discs..!?
But current blu-ray players and TVs don't do 48fps.

just watch Avatar on bluray, even the non-3D version will blow you away.

I thought TVs were 48fps? [In reply to] Can't Post

Otherwise, why is the film always being compared to TV programmes?

some TVs can do up to 120fps... It's the Blu-rays that don't support it // [In reply to] Can't Post

only 24fps. I've heard Peter Jackson is considering a summer theatrical release of the EE for this reason // [In reply to] Can't Post

I think he's referring to the refresh rate [In reply to] Can't Post

you know, 60hz, 120hz, stuff like that.

It's what governs frame rate in video games on the pc. I can have the best video card on the planet but right now I won't get better than 60fps 'cause my monitor is 60hz.

TV is generally 25 fps, I believe [In reply to] Can't Post

TV is nowhere near 48 fps. The comparisons are silly, in my opinion. The Hobbit doesn't look anything like TV. The most apt comparison, I think, is that it's like watching a play.

It is possible that some TV is shot at higher framerates and then scaled down. I'm not sure. But it is not broadcast at a high framerate, that's for sure.

all we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us...

FPSs [In reply to] Can't Post

If you have an HD TV, it most likely at least capable of 60Hz, but I believe Blu-Ray is capped at 24fps for 1080p and 30fps for 1080i/720p.
