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

That's what may happen in many D-Cinema business segments (but not because it 
makes the pictures look any better).   However, in
others, they'll capitalize on the based of 4:2:0 equipment that's available 
and/or the fact that implementing a 4:2:0 codec at those
resolutions (and memory bandwidth requirements) is less painful.

For D-Cinema, why bother with the conversion and the compression? Ship 
it as 4:4:4 and display it as such.   For D-Cinema, bandwidth and data 
storage should not be an issue.
