Winged Migration Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The subject matter of Winged Migration makes for inescapable comparisons with Planet Earth. The phenomenal picture quality of that Blu-ray set owed heavily to Cineflex, a technology to float the camera lens and a sensor inside a gyro-stabilized, immobile ball. Not to mention the $90,000 high-definition camera with a telephoto lens capable of 84 times magnification used in Planet Earth. The producers of Winged Migration didn't have those kinds of resources. Understandably, some footage of Winged Migration is nowhere near as crisp as the Cineflex footage. Other images appear to be cleaned up digitally and suffer from excessive windborne vibration. These problems are certainly not the fault of the Blu-ray. Overall, the picture quality is exemplary. The camerawork is very impressive and so is the transfer to 1080p. Detail, presence and depth are good, without rising to the Cineflex level that wards off nearly all signs of motion artifacts. A few of these signs are visible in Winged Migration, but they are easily ignored in favor of the rich landscapes and fascinating birds reproduced with good definition.

The colorful plumage and textured wings of our fine-feathered friends is rendered often with fantastic detail. Watch the scene where rockhopper penguins crowd the screen. Their characteristic yellow headfeathers that make them look like mad scientists are shown with Sony's traditionally strong yellow. The color balance is only slightly weighted to yellow, however, and other primary colors are equally rich, unlike many Sony Blu-rays that are heavier in the blues. The real balance is in the greyscale and black level. This accuracy allows for extraordinary depth and texture. Watch the back of the penguin's coat as it stands erect. Its course coat of feathers is rendered with exceptional detail, showing it is not as smooth as portrayed in most images. The definition provided by Winged Migration lets you see many species of birds up close and personal in a way you have never seen them before. Terrific presence.

Winged Migration Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Like the video, the Dolby TrueHD 5.1 mix of Winged Migration is not perfect but shows good clarity and presence. While there is little doubt that some type of noise reduction was applied during production, the transfer to True HD and mixing to 5.1 is done tastefully. Ambient sounds and the occasional bird chatter are assigned to the rear channels with the lion's share of content anchored in the center. High bird calls in the treble range sound piercing with good extention of the treble. In fact the sheer diversity of bird sounds is presented in dramatic fashion, with a variety of cacophonous and euphonious chatter and screeching. Even some midbass rumble is presented from the surrounding environs on occasion. The high register material is a touch rolled-off, but not encroaching on the overall realism or enjoyment of the sounds.

The soaring score by Bruno Coulais sounds lush and doesn't crowd the birds' noises or the occasional narration. You can learn from the bonus content that some thought was put into this musical accompaniment. One sign that the audio had been digitally processed is the surprisingly high level at which the TrueHD track is mastered. Prior to sliding the documentary in my PS3, I had watched The Matrix, which is mastered at a low level--lower than most Blu-ray audio content--and the bird calls on Winged Migration nearly blew me out of my sweet spot before I turned down the audio. Be forewarned.
