Re: HD Safe Title?

>Existing and anticipated display technology makes these concepts

I think it should be measured in pixels (8 to 16 or so?), certainly not 10%
You need to "discard" a few pixels around the edges to account for devices
that need to interpolate, extrapolate, imagine or mangle picture information
over a few samples.
I would like to believe that most TV sets capable of displaying HDTV should
be able to be repeatable enough during fabrication to be able to guarantee
seeing most of the image.

Maybe manufacturers should put in variable masking on all four edges and let
the viewer decide what he doesn't want to see.
