The Universe in 3D Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Universe in 3D is presented on 3D Blu-ray with MPEG-4 MVC encoded 1080p transfers in 1.78:1. (For the record, 2D AVC encoded versions of all three episodes are also included, as is the norm on these History releases.) Fans of The Universe know that great swaths of the series are built out of CGI, which one assumes is inherently easy to convert to 3D, and in fact a lot of all three episodes look really excellent, with some impressive depth and really finely gradated fields which allow the viewer to feel at times like they're in between huge celestial bodies. Perhaps most surprising about these 3D conversions is how good the talking head segments look. Foreground objects (usually but not always the main speaker) are clearly placed forward and once again excellent depth of field is on display. All of this said, there are some curiously flat moments as well, including some sequences that would seem to be custom made for the 3D treatment. A look at Saturn's rings, for example, doesn't really pop out at the viewer the way one would expect it to, and some of the purely graphical elements are pretty much flat as a pancake, with absolutely no depth added. The general video quality here is quite good, albeit with perhaps a very slight added layer of softness due to the 3D conversion. Depending on your equipment, you may be prone to some ghosting here and there, most noticeably on some of the text that accompanies some of the imagery. Colors remain surprisingly robust throughout the 3D presentation, with some really beautifully lustrous hues adding to the visual allure.


The Universe in 3D Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Perhaps surprisingly, the three episodes in The Universe in 3D have been given a surround sound upgrade from their original LPCM 2.0 presentations (and which the specs on the disc inserts state are still being offered) to DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mixes. There's some decent surround activity in some of the more "likely suspect" sequences, such as huge asteroids hurtling through space, and scenes of the dinosaurs meeting their fate. As should be expected, talking head segments and narration are still anchored resolutely front and center. This isn't the most consistently immersive track History has ever done, but it utilizes enough basic discrete channelization to make it interesting most of the time. One noticeable improvement here is in the low end, especially with regard to the bombastic LFE that dots all three episodes. Fidelity is excellent and dynamic range is appealingly wide.
