[opendtv] Re: 625 video quality is good enough....

No, it isn't an excuse, it's a practical, everyday problem for real
programme-makers. It's a problem I have to deal with often. Just remember
that an awful lot of programme-making is outside studio centres, in real
places with real lighting. Camera sensitivity is increasing steadily so
lighting levels are dropping, the days of specialist lighting are largely
gone for whole swathes of productions, for those people lighting flicker is
a real problem, not an imagined one.
