Transcoding Zen

I possess the true Dharma eye, the marvelous mind of Nirvana, the true form of the formless, the subtle dharma gate that does not rest on words or letters but is a special transmission outside of the scriptures.

Just kidding. I don’t possess a Dharma eye. What I do possess, however, is a new-found understanding and appreciation of digital video. A Quick Guide to Digital Video Resolution and Aspect Ratio Conversions is a really good example of the bizarre things that have happened in this semi-transition from analog to digital. The Compressionist is a blog that serves as a nice starting point for anyone interested in DV basics, with an obvious focus on compression.
