Vietnam in HD

 (TV) (2011)

Vietnam in HD Blu-ray offers decent video and great audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Their story is in danger of being lost to history. The men who came home from the Vietnam War represent a second silent generation. These are the men who won every battle in a lost war. Using the same experiential approach to storytelling as WWII in HD, HISTORY gives these veterans a voice. Through a collection of color Vietnam footage never seen by the public from private collections, museums, the US government, veteran's and news organizations as well as sources from Vietnam, they tell their stories and relive their struggles, courage and fears. This six-hour miniseries spans the massive initial troop build-up in 1965 to the fall of Saigon a decade later. Sound design, using popular music from that era, powerfully evokes the time period and experience.

For more about Vietnam in HD and the Vietnam in HD Blu-ray release, see Vietnam in HD Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.



Vietnam in HD Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Vietnam in HD is presented courtesy of A+E Networks Home Entertainment with an AVC encoded 1080p presentation in 1.78:1. In the early days of Blu-ray and HD in general, I used to regularly take The History Channel's home video releases to task for not being anamorphically enhanced. Unfortunately, History is making an equal but opposite (perhaps even worse) mistake, one they also made on the recently released Collector's Edition of WWII in HD. Now instead of not anamorphically enhancing 16x9 source elements, they are routinely stretching 4x3 elements to fit a 16x9 frame. The days of consumer ignorance about such matters are largely past, and it's inexcusable to see these bizarrely wide soldiers moving through the frame. What's even odder is that evidently other elements were properly matted and kept in a proper aspect ratio but displayed at 1.78:1. Why that attempt was made on only some of the footage is peculiar, to say the least. The contemporary interview segments are of course properly framed and anamorphically enhanced. In terms of actual video quality, as with any compilation of this type, source elements are highly variable and are culled from every small millimeter format imaginable, including home movies (8mm), so results vary greatly in quality. Some of this footage looks surprisingly spry, with decent color and detail, while other material is little more than a blur.


Vietnam in HD Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

As with WWII in HD, a lot of the footage utilized in Vietnam in HD was originally silent, so the lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix is the result of careful planning by a usually artful team of sound and mixing wizards. Generally the soundtrack very nicely matches the action, with well placed explosions, calls from the troops, and the general mayhem of battle filling the surrounds. The soundtrack has ample LFE in the gunfire and explosion footage, as might be imagined, and has some surprising dynamic range as it moves through contemporary interview segments, voice over work by a coterie of actors, and the narration by Michael C. Hall. Fidelity is top notch throughout the track, though there are some kind of peculiar general volume discrepancies in the final episode, where amplitude is noticeably softer part way through the episode.
