WWII in Hi Def

 (1942-1963)

WWII in Hi Def Blu-ray offers solid video and decent audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

A collection of documentaries from the U.S. National Archives is featured on this four disc set.

For more about WWII in Hi Def and the WWII in Hi Def Blu-ray release, see WWII in Hi Def Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.



WWII in Hi Def Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

As with any compilation which spans this much material and various source elements, WWII in Hi Def's VC-1 encoded 1080p image (in 1.38:1) varies considerably. The good news is the vast majority of these ten features look pretty darned amazing in their hi-def upgrades, as long as you keep in mind many of these were originally shot on either 16mm or 35mm under battle conditions which frequently resulted in early exposure or damage to the actual negative. The Technicolor features included here are a tad on the soft side, though with fairly robust and well saturated color for something of this age. Aside from the short version of December 7 and Nuremberg, the black and white features look very good, with excellent contrast and generally very stable blacks. All of these features sport occasional (and sometimes more than occasional) blemishes, with scratches, dirt, white flecks and other debris dotting the image. But taking the historical import of these features into consideration, as well as their age, the image quality here for the most part is most definitely a pleasant surprise.


WWII in Hi Def Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Two audio options are included on these Blu-rays, a DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 mix and a Dolby Digital 2.0 mix (strangely the discs default to the Dolby mix--when are distributors going to figure out most Blu-ray consumers want lossless audio and will choose that mix if given the choice?). For the most part all of these features sound good to very good, within the confines of early 1940s recording techniques. A couple of the features have fairly badly damaged audio, including Battle of Midway, which easily fares the worst sound wise among the ten features included here. The short form December 7 also has some audio damage. The rest of the features, while boxy and lacking either extreme highs or lows, feature decent to excellent fidelity, albeit with hiss and the occasional pop and crack.
