She's working her way through College, starring Ronald Reagen and Virginia Mayo, looks so spectacular on my 12 year old CRT television it's kind of mind boggling. I thought the red gun on my television was not working properly, yet whenever a show comes on that was shot on film, the image ALWAYS looks much much better than an HD or video originated footage does.

Even though I think my CRT needs adjustment, the quality of She's working her way through College looks so perfect I am now wondering if there is something going on in HD and video originated footage that does not translate well in the new age of digital compression, especially to a CRT.

I'm not sure, but I do know that many films look waaaay better on a crt than on an lcd panel. In fact I freaked out when I first saw one of my films on an lcd panel and spent hours trying to fix it, in post, yet stopped worrying when I saw it projected.

Panels definitely seem to prefer video over film to some extent.
