A Mac home theatre case-study
by Gordon Meyer
In the article it says that it 'according to Lewis. "It takes about 10 hours" to convert a single DVD'. I'm pretty sure that this is wrong, I can do several DVDs a day and that is with a G4 700Hz.
|Just commenting on the post below. With my old G5 2Ghz Power PC iMac it did take 10 hours to encode in the h.264 format. I have recently purchased a new Intel iMac and the time has gone down to 2 hours.|
|First of all I wanted to read the article, but the page could not be found. Second, it is a great idea and some theatre tickets could become useless this way. All in all, that "provided that" there sounds more like an advertising to me and not like an invitation to using more and more the technology that can bring action into our homes.|
|Hi, Jack. Yes, the article is still available in the Tribune archives, which is explained on the page you see when you click the link. And I suppose that Mac-advocacy shouldn't be too much of a surprise here.|
