Roxette - All Videos Ever Made And More - The Complete Collection 1987 - 2001 (2001) R1 Retail DVD
I just got my Roxette DVD this morning, so pleased!! as some people round the world are wondering about the specs and quality of this DVD I thought I'd add my contribution to the reviews by doing a small technical review of it.Testing machine specs: Gigabyte motherboard, AMD Duron processor @ 920mhz, 256mb ram, 6 channel Theatrix 5.1 sound card, Matrox G550 dualhead AGP graphics card with tv-out, 6x Pioneer DVD-ROM drive, Sigma Designs Hollywood+ hardware DVD player with tv-out, WinDVD 1.2 & PowerDVD 3.0.Roxette DVD specs:- Single sided, dual layer disc- Audio - Dolby Digital 16bit/48khz 2 channelmore… (stereo)- Video format - 4:3 fullscreen, 625/50 (PAL interlaced)- Macrovision (video copy protection) - yes- Region coding - despite Amazon saying it is a region 2 disc, my original disc has no region coding (meaning all players can play it, however American NTSC tv's may not be able to cope with the PAL video stream)...- Total running time - 2 hours 45 minutes for all 40 videos, & 1 hour 42 minutes for the two documentariesI already have the original VHS "roxette the videos" that has musicvideos 5-13 & "the making of joyride" documentary so went to compare the image quality between the VHS & DVD, I was disappointed.It appears as though they have mastered those particular musicvideos FROM the VHS and not the master source from which the VHS was created as the VHS is clearer than the DVD. On the track "The Look" you can clearly see mpeg artefacts and image degredation when the camera pans sideways producing a screenful of blurred image, the VHS doesn't exhibit this degredation. The worst quality musicvideo is "Listen To Your Heart" as they appear to have done some temporal softening on the video, blurring one frame to the next, which has the effect of producing ghosting and a horrible motion blur.I also have the original VHS "Roxette Look Sharp Live" with the tracks "The Look", "Dressed For Success", "Dance Away" (live), "Cry" (live), "Paint" (live), "Silver Blue" (live) & "Listen To Your Heart", and the musicvideo on the DVD "Silver Blue" exhibits the same blurring as "Listen To Your Heart".But all the other tracks and the other documentary don't suffer any image quality problems and are of excellent quality.The audio of all tracks is also excellent (and mastered at a higher quality than CD, but really you wouldn't notice), weirdly though, WinDVD will try and play the 2 channel audio as 5.1 with the center speaker putting out the most music, it doesn't sound very good though so go to the Properties menu and make it play as 2 channel.Side note: As the DVD has interlaced video on it I found that playing back on a PAL TV screen with a hardware DVD player (the Hollywood+ card) produces a much cleaner, smoother image than playing back on a computer screen (with WinDVD or PowerDVD), however playing back on a computer screen is preferable to playing back on an NTSC TV.Conclusion: Despite it claiming to have "all videos ever made & more" it has missed out on the live tracks "Dance Away", "Cry" & "Paint" which are on the "Roxette Look Sharp Live" VHS, and also despite the image quality of some of the musicvideos not being up to scratch, the bottom line is:this is one DVD that EVERY Roxette fan should go out and buy as soon as they possibly can.
