Media Playback (Blu-Ray/MKV)


Blu-Ray 3D Playback:
Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs 3D  is encoded in High Definition 1080p format using MPEG4 AVC compression and comes on a dual layer (50GB) disc. The aspect ratio of 2.35:1 is used with letterbox bars at the top and bottom of the 16:9 image. This portion of the movie has an average video bitrate of around 45Mbps and regularly peaks above this making it one of the most demanding Blu-Rays on the market. For comparison, a movie such as Casino Royale has a bitrate of 24Mbps.



Benchmark Results


MKV: Our test file was a 1080p .mkv file which was taken from a 1080p source and converted into this format.



Benchmark Results


In both of our playback tests the motherboards being tested today offer performance which is identical to the naked eye. Regardless of the model chosen they would all offer an excellent basis for a system being used for media playback.
