I'd be curious to know if/why all this is true.  I'm still skeptical.

There was a concerted effort to eliminate interlace from the h.264 standard. Unfortunately, the same folks who forced interlace into the MPEG-2 standard did it again with h.264.

Another pure IP play!


Fortunately, even Sony now understands that there is no future in interlace.
