Petition Tag - high definition
The Eurovision Song Contests have been recorded in high definition every year since 2006. However, it was not until 2011 that the first Eurovision Song Contest was released on Blu-ray.
While it is likely that future contests will also be released on Blu-ray, they have not yet, and do not currently plan to release the contests made before 2011 on Blu-ray.
This petition asks for the 2006-2010 contests (those recorded in high definition) to be released on Blu-ray in high definition, like the 2011 contest has been.
The game Final Fantasy 7 was one of the top selling games of its time. Since the creation, the game has been played and replayed. It was even considered to be in the top 10 games of its time.
Even today, people still play this game, in the desperate hope that a newer and better version be made.
Since 2007 the Eurovision Song Contests have been both recorded and broadcast in high definition. Some sources state that the 2006 contest was also recorded in high definition, though it was only broadcast in standard definition. The contests have, though, only ever been available to buy on standard definition DVD (unfortunately, only the 2004 contest onwards) and CD.
I think that the recent contests (all those recorded in high definition) should be released on Blu-ray in high definition (1080/50i) like the broadcasts, particularly since the vast majority of TVs on sale in Europe are either HD-ready or Full HD, with many European consumers owning HDTVs.
I also think the earlier contests should be made available on Blu-ray too. Even the ones recorded in standard definition, since this will:-
A) Allow for better picture and sound quality, since Blu-ray can use much higher bitrates than DVD. They can also be encoded up-scaled to again increase the quality (by storing the SD contests up-scaled, more colour samples and smaller macroblocks can also be used, leading to better PQ) when viewed on modern HDTVs.
B) It will allow multiple contests shot in standard definition to be put onto one Blu-ray disc instead of lots of DVDs.
C) It will allow for use of extra features that Blu-ray supports that DVD doesn't. eg. It will allow for stored playlists of songs for a particular contest or playlists that span multiple contests.
