Company

 (2011)

Company Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

COMPANY is the story of Bobby, a 30-something bachelor and serial dater, who is the envy of his many married friends. They throw him a birthday party every year, perpetually invite him for dinner or drinks, and routinely tell him their secrets. Bobby seems to have it all. Or does he? This 2011 stage performance was recorded in front of a live audience.

For more about Company and the Company Blu-ray release, see Company Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Director: Lonny Price
Writer: George Furth
Starring: Craig Bierko, Stephen Colbert, Jon Cryer, Katie Finneran, Neil Patrick Harris, Christina Hendricks

Company Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Blu-ray's jacket incorrectly lists the video format as 1080p and the aspect ratio as 2.35:1. In fact, the format is 1080i, as is almost always the case with Image Entertainment's releases of material captured in hi-def video, and the aspect ratio is 1.78:1.

I have come to suspect that 1080i material is more susceptible to variances in playback and display equipment that 1080p, because user (and reviewer) evaluations of such material seem to be all over the map. Screenshots are an even less useful tool with 1080i than usual, because they are almost always upconverted to 1080p, which is how Blu-ray.com's screenshots are created.

I can only report what I see, and the image on the AVC-encoded Blu-ray of the 2011 Company is a superior hi-def capture of a live-action event. Close-up and medium shots are sufficiently detailed that one can easily spot the seams in the stage wigs (something usually only visible to those in the first few rows) and every pattern in Tracy Christensen's character-specific costumes. Long shots are where 1080i begins to reveal its limitations, but Company holds up reasonably well, maintaining sufficient coherence on individual faces to distinguish details of performance even at a distance. Blacks are solid, and the colors are varied but impossible to characterize further, because the effective lighting designed by Kirk Bookman and Alan Adelman keeps changing the tone of everything. Keep an eye on Bobby's jacket and try to decide what color it is. It's not an accident that the hue keeps shifting, because it's the uniform of an intentional chameleon. Bookman and Adelman achieve this effect simply by changing the stage lights.

It's nice to see Image making greater use of BD-50s. This one accommodates the 2:24 program with no noticeable compression errors.


Company Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Here again, the Blu-ray's jacket contains an error. The sole audio track is DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. There is no DD 5.1 track, nor can I imagine why anybody would want one. The DTS lossless track is superb, although its acoustical properties bear little relationship to the visual spaces displayed on screen. The production was thoroughly miked, and the mix has obviously been crafted in the studio. (This may be just as well, given persistent controversies over the acoustics of Avery Fisher Hall.) The singers remain firmly and clearly anchored to the center, except for one notable occasion, which I'll let the viewer discover, when voices of the married couples bounce through the surrounds. The 35-piece orchestra spreads luxuriously throughout the surround array, with excellent dynamic range and bass extension, allowing full appreciation of Jonathan Tunick's original arrangements. (For comparison, a 25-piece orchestra is considered large by current Broadway standards, and most are smaller.)

Audience reaction has been kept relatively restrained, including the applause after musical numbers and at the end. Given the size of the house, the audience was no doubt louder than it sounds on this recording, but the disc's producers made the judgment (correctly, I think) that purchasers of the disc were not acquiring it to hear the live audience.
