Fascination Coral Reef 3D

 (2013)

Fascination Coral Reef 3D Blu-ray features poor video and great audio in this mediocre Blu-ray release

Enter the fascinating world of the coral reefs and experience flora and fauna up close and in 3D. The multitude of marine species, commencing with glassy sweepers, blow- and porcupine fish, goliath groupers, giant morays, sea turtles up to the largest shark on earth, the whale shark, as well as the play of colours and the biodiversity of the corals, stony star corals, soft corals, bubble-tip anemones and gorgonian corals. Let yourself fall into a rapture of the deep. All in glorious 3D!

For more about Fascination Coral Reef 3D and the Fascination Coral Reef 3D Blu-ray release, see Fascination Coral Reef 3D Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Directors: Burkhard Neesen, Rene Schoepfer

Fascination Coral Reef 3D Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.0 of 5

Fascination Coral Reef 3D sinks further with a disheartening 1080p/MVC-encoded transfer and subsequent 3D presentation. Compared to Amazing Ocean, Coral Reef exhibits more obvious and persistent aliasing (going frame by frame reveals multiple instances in almost every scene), not to mention more serious banding, more disruptive macroblocking, more ringing, more noise, more pixelation, more bleeding, more missteps, more mishaps... essentially more of everything you don't want to see swimming alongside the creatures of the reef. It isn't a complete misfire, I'll admit. Colors are stronger (blues in particular), contrast is more vibrant and black levels deeper, but any improvement is offset by more crush, softness, compression blips and pulldown-like oddities. The 3D isn't any better. While some foreground elements pop now and again, so too do the technical issues. 3D aliasing et al. Depth and dimensionality are also lacking, and the image is just as prone to ghosting on displays that exhibit crosstalk, if not more so. Several scenes (far too many, truth be told) even look as if they've been ripped from an upconverted DVD. Hardly what I expect from a 1080p high definition presentation in 2013, especially one released by a major studio.


Fascination Coral Reef 3D Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Fascination Coral Reef 3D and Fascination Coral Reef 3D: Mysterious Worlds Underwater feature near-identical DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround tracks, but that's actually a good thing. Granted, the documentaries' sound design is by no means first rate. That said, the addition of LFE output (underutilized though it may be) and rear speaker activity makes the resulting sonic experiences fuller and more satisfying. Music is by far the most refined element in the soundfield, as well as the one thing that takes advantage of the entire soundstage. Light directional effects are present, the flow and warble of the ocean is passably immersive, and there aren't any glaring issues; certainly none that are as distracting as those that plague the discs' video presentations. Narration is clear, intelligible and nicely prioritized too, despite the fact that the score is a touch domineering at times. Still, each Fascination Coral Reef lossless track is easily the highlight of its respective release, and the one redeeming aspect of each AV presentation.
