Thread: CinemaxHD MPEG4
05-25-2007 11:39 PM #1
I rarely watched anything on Cinemax. Since MaxHD was added last month, I'm liking watching it more and more. I think the HD picture quality has surpassed StarzHD and HBO and Sho, IMO. The Star Wars movies today were exceptionally good and in OAR. I'm hopin that it will continue to get better and better as E* keeps improving it's MPEG4 equipment. Keep up the good work E*

I noticed the same thing last night. The picture quality on those Star Wars movies was really good. A lot better than HBO, Showtime and Starz.

Little bit hard to believe
It's a little hard to believe that MAXHD would have a better PQ than HBOHD. Since HBO is 1920 X 1080 whereas MAX is 1440 X 1080.

There is more to picture quality than just resolution. You also have to look at bit rate and encoding.

Then give us the bit rates. HBO HD is an 1920 x 1080 MPEG 2 and MAX HD is 1440 x 1080 MPEG 4. The only variable left would be Bit rates of the 2. Someone with a stream analyzer let us know how the 2 compare.
