"Watch this space" as BBC Creative respond to ident change request

That would make sense, surely something sourced from 1080 wouldn't look that poor on a cinema screen. Plenty of films are mastered and/or projected in 2k, which isn't much different resolution wise, after all.

Saw a trailer for BBC1's The Capture last night at the cinema. Never seen a BBC ad at the cinema before, perhaps I don't go to the cinema enough!?

Exactly the same as the trailer that they show on TV, noticeably poor quality (sandwiched between two ads that sparkled in native 4k)

I wonder what process was used to get it from 1080 25p to 'digital cinema'?


It may be that the original trail was in 576i25. BBC Creative still make BBC One and Two trails in SD I believe, or did when I last bothered to look at one critically on an HD channel.


Umm. I saw the same trailer on TV on Monday, and TBH it looked pretty soft there too, though to be fair it was full of deliberate CCTV style impairments, (being a drama about CCTV impairments 😎)

BBC Creative make their promos in HD (I don't think any broadcaster doesn't now) but it's exported to playout in SD (and then upscaled Rolling Eyes ).

UKTV have a similar set up, it's to do with a storage space issue on playout's side apparently.

That rather bizarre downscaled / upscaled trail situation between BBC Creative and network channel playout has been resolved for around a couple of years now. Network trails are now delivered and played out in HD.

Local trails in NI have been produced and played out in HD on BBC ONE NI HD for almost 7 years.

Inside Out North West's awfully rendered ECP promoting next week's edition was in Reith last night.

As he says #titles, more likely a title sequence for a new programme.

Yeah, seems like it's got something to do with Lewis Capaldi...

Don't get most of your hopes up though, anything red and relating to BBC might not be what it seems.
Do you even read these?

Would that really warrant the "something exciting" comments?
If we only get one life, why does it take several attempts to get it right?

Just out of interest, why doesn’t BBC One and Two have DOGs?

Viewer complaints from the early days of digital, which seem to have stuck for the main channels.
