Best of Travel: South Africa

 (TV) (2010)

Best of Travel: South Africa Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

I was a bit surprised to see a pull quote on the cover of this new Blu-ray about its image quality. While that may not sound particularly odd, what struck me as unusual is that it was a pull quote from Blu-ray.com, and obviously we hadn't yet reviewed this title. It turns out the fine folks at Questar, who obviously know an informed opinion when they read one, have utilized this same quote on all sorts of their product over the past couple of years. The quote reads "A beautiful visual experience," and so to make the review of this particular title conform with Blu-ray.com's previously stated opinion on another Questar title, I'm happy to report that South Africa's AVC encoded 1080p transfer (in 1.78:1) is, indeed, a beautiful visual experience. (I feel like I've wandered into one of those convoluted science fiction movies where the ending twists around to the beginning). It's unusual for these BDs culled from television fare to be granted a full 1080p transfer, and that helps up the image quality here substantially. Colors are often bold and very robust, fine detail is incredible, especially with regard to landscapes and some close-ups of wildlife, and the overall image is very sharp and clear.


Best of Travel: South Africa Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

While South Africa's lossy standard Dolby Digital 2.0 mix suffices pretty well for this series, "Capetown" especially could have benefited from at least a lossless stereo track (if not a full surround mix) due to its nice music segments highlighting some popular local bands. On the whole, though, this is typically narration driven fare, and as such, there's not a lot to complain about with this DD 2.0 mix. Maxa's voice is clear, and his interview subjects are also well presented. Some of the ambient noises no doubt would have had more oomph with a lossless track, but there's nothing downright horrible here, other than a missed opportunity.
