yes - exactly - " improved video codec " - what beast dwelleth here ? That statement could include alot of ground , i.e. opens up myriad questions . We need to know exactly what they mean by "improved ". Are there any hiredguns available ?? We need an expert to chime in on this one.

My skeptical question would be "compared to what." The FX-1 has an "improved codec" when compared to the PD-170 for example...

---------

Just looking a little closer, that news item actually says "but the QUALIA seems to have a revised video codec " and its source is the Akihabara News, not Sony. Look at the press release from Sony in my earlier post. They are not claiming anything new in the Codec. They mention the "Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar SQ T* (star) lens (specialized for QUALIA" and other exciting features like the "genuine leather grip belt", and of course the "elegantly styled black piano finish" however.

The whole Qualia line seems to exist primarily as status symbols for people who don't care how much the latest gadget costs.

But I'm sure that the video you shoot with your new Qualia 002 is gonna sound great through those $2,600 Qualia 010 headphones and look even greater on the Qualia 006 Silicon X-tal Reflective Display which is "expected to sell for a relatively modest $13,000."

New CF26 Mode added for only 999.99 USD

FX1 3000 USD CF24 (lame)
FX1E 4000 USD CF25 (OK)
Qualia 5000 USD CF26 (revolutionary)

CF26 is the improved codec. To appreciate stunning improvement you need to buy matching color new Qualia projector for mere 26,000 USD
