John Willkie, who wonders just who is transmitting at that rate.  Could it
be more than a bit of hype?

No hype, just good display design.

Remember, acquisition, transmission and display are decoupled in our digital world.

The major advantage of 120P display refresh today is VASTLY improved presentation of 24P source material. These displays create in-between frames from the 24P source to deliver better motion rendition than you will see in a theater.

NO MORE 3:2 pulldown.

No more 24P judder on fast motion.

The improvement in quality is FAR greater than the difference between Standard Definition DVD and Blu Ray.

Unfortunately these displays do not attempt to create in-between frames for 720@60P and 1080@30i sources. For these formats each frame/field is displayed twice.
