Where did you hear about the JVC/Sharp connection? I may have missed it.

Sorry I don't have the link at hand. It seems that this codevelopment explains why there are two different resolutions in the HDV format. I don't remember any more details, but I recall having read something about Sharp working on a Viewcam-like HDV prototype for the Japanese market and then dropping the project.

In that case, we'll just leave it as a rumor, sorry to say. Let's do some research and find out about it! :-)

There's a bit of info on Sharp/JVC connection on this page (scroll down to the GR-HD1 and JY-HD10 specifications):

You know, I tried re-freshing the site and I got a generic Geocities page. Is that legit?

It appears they've gone over their transfer limit. Anyway, here's what the page said:

Quote:
Another interesting tidbit in the rumor mill is that originally (a couple of years ago) JVC and Sharp were working together to build the platform which has become the GR-HD1. But when Sony came along negotiating LCD panels with Sharp, they also opened the door to license their own HDV technology, the design for a 1080i solution. Sharp bought into it due to fewer motion artifacts and more resolution, leaving JVC alone to continue developing their 720p technology. Around the same timeframe, Sony welcomed the work that JVC had done so far as part of the HDV spec, making for a more well-rounded standard to include both 720p and 1080i resolutions. For a year now I've been wondering why in the world the HDV spec defined 720p as using a transport stream and 1080i instead with Packetized Elementary Stream (PES). This tidbit, if true, completely explains that discrepancy!
