Australia's First 4 Billion Years Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The AVC encoded image (1.78:1 aspect ratio) presentation is almost a throwback to HD-shot nature documentaries of recent memory. Refusing filmic filters, the cinematography is video-like and clean, capturing the exact feel of the locations, boasting fresh colors that make blue skies and red rocks pop. Disparate environments are rich with stable, purposeful hues, while skintones run naturally, often absorbing the brightness of the surroundings. Minor banding, ringing, and aliasing are detected, but seldom distract. Blacks are generally deep and communicative, allowing the viewer to study distances and the particulars of rock formations and bacterial layers. In all, it's a very vivid show that makes its presence felt on BD.


Australia's First 4 Billion Years Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The 2.0 DTS-HD MA sound mix makes a thudding first impression, with the percussive score announcing itself via a solid bass presence, woven suitably into the main program, keeping the musical mood buoyant enough to compete with Dr. Smith's animated gestures. The host's voice is presented with clarity and crisp pronunciation, easing the burden of heavy accents from Dr. Smith and his various guests. Atmospherics are cooked, making an immediate impression with gurgling waters and whipping winds, roaring animals and the sting of heat, with the track attempting to communicate naturalistic events without the benefit of live sound. While it seems to hunger for a more circular listening experience, the mix satisfies without distortion.
