CBS Releases New Star Trek: TNG Remastered FootageWritten by John Thompson on January 6, 2012 · Filed under TV/Movies
Since finding out that Star Trek: The Next Generation was undergoing a serious remastering and high definition transfer to Blu-Ray in September, I’ve been very eager to see more footage when the sample disc was released at the end of this month.
Don’t worry, those three episodes are still coming right on schedule at the end of January, but CBS has decided to give us a little sneak peek of what we can expect from the transfer. The video contains scenes from ‘Encounter at Farpoint’, the pilot of The Next Generation, and shows the previous standard definition version next to the newly remastered high definition version side by side.
Those buying the sample pack this month certainly won’t be disappointed by the quality of the remastering process; the CGI has been updated but remains true to the original footage, without unnecessary effects being thrown in across the episode, and all of the shots look incredibly sharp.
If you want to take a look at the new preview for yourself, you can view the video both below and at the source link. Don’t forget to pre-order the sample pack from Amazon while you’re at it, it comes out on January 30th for just £7.
