Data disk and HD pictures

Question

I hope this is not retoric questions but I will ask any way.

I have a Sony DSC-H50 stillpicture camera capable of making HD pictures. I have put those pictures on my computer and now I would like to burn them to DVD and play on my Sony HD TV using the standard DVD player and still be able to keep the HD quality of the picture. I was able to make the Photo slideshow using the Roxio 2010 Pro tools but the quality is not HD. Can I somehow burn the DVD as a data disk and be able to view my pictures in HD quality or the only way is to play it on the Blue-ray player.

I was really hoping that somehow I can burn my picture on the DVD and play reqular DVD with the HD quality since these are only data but it doens seems I can. Any ideas?

Is your player able to work with jpeg discs (picture discs)? If so look at what the requirements are for those on your player and make a DVD with the images in that file structure. This will be manual navigation unless you player has an automatic play disc function.

 

Anyting else would require a blu-ray player.

 

Some of your other posts seem to indicate that you have a blu-ray player; do you?

No I don't have a Blu-ray player ( yet - planing to purchase it today ). I did make a data disc with the .jpeg files on it but my DVD player does not recognize it. Yet I have an older discs with the "standard definitions" pictuers on them and they can be played on the same player. Ther must be something with the structure of the disc I'm creating rigth now which causes problems.

Your terminology is a bit confusing. What are you calling Standard definition pictures and hidef pictures? Be specific! If you are creating a slideshow and burning to a regular video DVD, those are ALL standard definition video. Some DVD players have the ability to display JPEGs which is not a 'video DVD'. This of course will give you the best quality even if the DVD player is plugged into a standard definition TV. The 'compression' is done on the fly. A regular DVD player simply can not output Hidef. If you want 'real' high definition, a Bluray player and hidef TV would be required.

Yes, probably I'm not too specific.

My photo camera is capable of producing 1920x1080 resolution pictures with the 16:9 asspect and they call it HD pictures so I do the same.

These pictures look great playing on my 22" computer screen and when I play them directly thru my camera to my HD TV they also look great. I didn't figure out the way to save these pictures on the DVD using either Roxio or Windows 7 tools and then play that DVD on my "regular" DVD player and obtain the same quality.

I'm starting to think that I really need to have a Blu-ray player.

As I suggested in the first post. what did your player manual say about its ability to play jpeg picture discs? Some can and some cannot. Does yours?

 

If you make a jpeg picture disc (data disc) it has to be in the right file structure. In mine, I believe it had to be ISO 9660.

 

Try this, don't skip steps:

 

1) Use a RW disc just in case.

2) Go to Windows, Start, All Programs.

3) Look for Roxio 2010 let it open and select "applications".

4) Look for and click on Creator Classic.

5) Let that open, select data disc and select project properties.

6) Select the file structure that your player manual says will be needed to play a jpeg disc.

7) Load your images into the lower half of the

8) Burn

9) Try it.

10) Post back

Thanks for the info. Followed all the step. Created disk is being played by my DVD. Pictures quality is bad. I really thing I need a Blu-ray player in this case or some other way to stream data to my TV outside my DVD player.

I agree with Gary.

 

The jpeg disc is the original images on a disc with a structure that allows navigation. There is no conversion to a movie file. The quality would be limited only by the DVD player and your TV. The disc should be equal to or better than the picture discs you get from a commercial picture disc (like a Kodak picture disc).

 

What did your DVD player say about jpeg discs? How do the images on that disc look on your computer?

 

What DVD player do you have? What kind of cable from your player to the TV? Do you have a HiDef TV -720 or 1080? Have you run a cleaner disc on it or blown it out with dry air? Be careful and read all warnings if you decide to do it.

 

The Blu-ray won't help unless you do go to a slide show then it will be up to 1080 horizontal lines of data (you can make a AVCHD slide show disc). If you want to spend the money, I think things like Apple TV will do that. It won't help but it may make you feel better.

 

What DVD brand are you using? Memorex and store brands or RW discs MAY give poorer performance.

I also think that Gary might be right.

My understanding of the playback is exactly like you described in your first paragraph so I'm really upset about the quality of the picture and I think I need to put the blame on my DVD player. To answer your questions.

 

1. I have older SONY DVD player which is connected using composit cable ( so this might be my issue ).

2. I have SONY XBR TV capable of full HD ( 1920 x 1080 ).

3. DVD player reads the created jpeg disc and I'm able to navigate the pictures - outside the quality and speed the disc doesn't seems to be a problem.

4. Disc plays with the expected HD quality on the computer.

5. DVDs are Memorex brand.

Composite connections are incapable of passing anything to the TV better than 720 X 480.

 

You can feed the Player a Blu-ray but it will look no better than a DVD unless you have an HDMI connection between the 2.

 

I have a BD Player with both outputs and a HD TV that takes both inputs, so I compared them side by side by connecting both and changing Source on the TV.

 

There was no doubt the BD disc output was being downgraded to DVD Quality.

 

Oh, the "up-sampling" of a DVD… Maybe but I could not see any real difference between the 2.

 

 

Get some Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden disc and start phasing out the Memorix before it bites you.
