of F1 Grand Prix races as well as the paddock areas. Lot’s of camera shots featuring segments from races, as well
as composite shots of race teams preparing for the actual race. Lot’s of footage of the Ferrari Team !
Picture is very sharp with plenty of shadow detail
present. Colors are nicely
rendered although at times can feel a bit desaturated. There is some chroma noise present in
the picture, and compression artifacts while few, are present in the form of
analog noisy picture. But the
compression artifacts are slight, and never get in the way of the picture being
presented. My guess is this is an
early HDVS camera shot production.
Sound of F1 cars are not present as much as you’d
think. Sound comes via B-Channel,
but is primarily a relaxed soundtrack to accompany the varying shots
encompassing this disc. Surround
and low frequency effects are absent.
If you’re into F-1 cars and racing, this is a nice composite disc. Otherwise, this disc may be a bit boring to view, and certainly has very little repeat value.
