I’m trying to find out which SDTV and HDTV versions of Star Wars are floating around the net, and to understand something more about them…

Some facts (and factoids) I found so far:

  • OUT should be not available on digital form, but eventually only recorded on VHS, Betamax or Video 2000
  • 1997 SE are available only on SDTV - PAL 720x576 25fps, don’t know if any NTSC versions are around; I recorded myself the RaiTre version - with a DVD recorder connected via a SCART RGB cable to a DTV decoder; quality is quite low, some garbage frames, cropped to 2:1, but if there is some interest I could think to upload it - screenshots of Reivax, Flunx, TB, GKar here: http://originaltrilogy.com/forum/topic.cfm/Max-Rebos-97-SE-superset-preservation/post/323245/#TopicPost323245
  • The Phantom Menace is available for sure in SD on the so-called “TB” version; according to this page - http://www.starwars-union.de/nachrichten/1113/StarWars_im_digitalen_Format - it was broadcasted in 2001 by German TV Premiere, in 16:9 and German 5.1 DD audio; it was also noted by a member of this forum that it was broadcasted by Austrian ORF1, first in SD, then in HD - no evidence of that until now
  • It seems that no Attack Of The Clones and Revenge Of The Sith theatrical versions were never broadcasted - but I’ll be more than happy to discover the opposite!
  • HDTV broadcasting valid resolutions are:
    1280x720 1280x1080 1440x1080 1440x1088 1920x1080 1920x1088
    so any resolution different from those ones are necessarily re-encoded; until now, available versions use only the last two ones - even if there seems that at least one 1280x1080 version was broadcasted
  • HDTV valid video codecs are MPEG-2 and h264 (a.k.a. AVC); any other codec - like VC-1, WMV, DivX etc. are necessarily re-encoded
  • HDTV valid audio codecs are AC3, MP2, AAC; any other codec - like DTS etc. are necessarily re-encoded
  • HDTV max average video bitrate is around 19mbps; the 30+GB floating some times ago may be recorded from cable TV, or re-encoded; actually, the biggest file size, including audio track(s), is around 20GB, while some lower bitrate versions are around 10GB
  • Usually HDTV broadcast have some kind of logo but, as far as I know, it seems there is no trace in any known available versions, so it means that for some particular reason these had no logo at all, or the logo was removed, and so they should be necessarily re-encoded
  • The only “untouched” HDTV file - recorded bit-perfect from a SAT or DTV PC card - has a .ts file extension (both for MPEG2 and h264); but .mkv or .mp4 could be found - it’s possible to mux untouched video and audio streams in these container, and add also further audio and/or sub tracks
  • HDTV versions use the same masters of the 2004 DVD SE; so, they are NOT the same versions found on BD - EXCEPT for the new WOWOW recordings
  • Video quality could range from fair to good, but not as good as the BD - due to lower HDTV bitrate; but the BD is DVNR’d so some shots/scenes could be better on HDTV than BD
  • Usually BD has a bigger frame size, while sometime the opposite is true:

    http://screenshotcomparison.com/comparison/90179
  • HDTV may have different cropping and color grading:
    http://screenshotcomparison.com/comparison/123357
  • Some versions may have glitches, some not (note the trousers):
    http://screenshotcomparison.com/comparison/123360
    http://screenshotcomparison.com/comparison/123361
    http://screenshotcomparison.com/comparison/123362
  • Here you are a screenshot gallery of German Premiere HDTV original trilogy - even if the site claims pictures are from Cinemax, they are NOT, as you can see the German crawl:
