I performed a series of tests uing the standardized HQV DVD Benchmark Test Disc organially provided by Silicon Optix (IDT). The DVD has a series of test patterns and images that test how well a video processor in a TV, Home Theater Receiver, or Blu-ray/DVD player performs when faced with a low resolution or poor quality source.
In this Step-by-Step look, the results of several of the tests listed in the menu above are shown. Also, the results of the tests that are not illustrated via photos are also summarized at the of this profile.
The following tests were conducted with the Panasonic SC-BTT195's HDMI output connected to a Westinghouse LVM-37w3 LCD Monitor, which has 1080p screen resolution display capability. The Panasonic SC-BTT195 was set for 1080p output so that the test results reflected the video processing performance of the SC-BTT195.
Screen shots in this presentation were obtained using a Sony DSC-R1 Digital Still Camera. Photos were taken at 10-Megapixel resolution and resized for posting in this presentation.
