[opendtv] Re: Chroma Formats, P versus I, and Resolution Issues

Note that the D-Cinema context has only one pass thru the following sequence:

Master in 4:4:4, convert to 4:2:0, convert to compressed state, then 
distribution, back to uncompressed state and back to 4:4:4 then
display.

If the application required more passes I might have a different opinion

I bow to Tom here, as he has had much more access than myself to recent demos. 
But I think he would agree, that extending the color
gamut beyond the current Rec709 limits does make a noticeable difference.
