RotLA WOWOW-sourced custom BD

22 Replies, 12704 Views

I made a custom BD of RotLA.  It is sourced from the WOWOW broadcast but uses another broadcast encoded from the same master to remove the logo and the Japanese subtitles.  I also replaced a few frames that the WOWOW was missing before the close-up of the snake in the Well of Souls.  The custom BD is synchronized to the official one, so people should be able to mux in whatever dub tracks they want.

Details
BD-50
PCM from the LD
DTS-HD MA (from the official BD)
various subtitles
I made this for my own use because I like the color-timing of the WOWOW broadcast.  (Please don't argue about the color-timing in this thread.)  I sent it to a few friends, and to my surprise, there has been a fair amount of interest.  Andrea forced me at gunpoint to post a thread about it here, so here it is.
PM me (preferably on ot.com) if you are interested.

Thanks
Andrea

Can attest to the fact that it's an absolutely wonderful disc. Didn't think I'd ever see the WOWOW broadcast in this immaculately high quality. Honestly, it could have been the commercial release and would have garnered excellent reviews. The LD and BD soundtracks are just the icing on the cake.
What is WOWOWOWOWOWOW?
It means "really big WOW"
If the question wan not ironic (was it?), WOWOW is a Japanese broadcast company, which transmits with an high bitrate MPEG2 encoding, and thus it has probably the best HDTV sources for our projects.

Some people have asked about sharing this on MySpleen. While I have no plans to do this myself, I have no objection to others distributing the disc elsewhere (as long as they don't remux it, recompress it, or otherwise change it).

I can take care of that. I've got it extracting now, I'll put it up when it's done.
