NBC "Live" on 9/11, or "Armageddon"- Which Picture Is Real?
Question: So which picture is more real to you- a still from this on line, low resolution flv. movie file [ from the 1998 "Armageddon" movie]:
Or..... this still from this on line, higher resolution original MPEG archived record of NBC's original , allegedly live, 9/11 broadcast? :
FACT: yes, I understand both images are only at a low resolution 72 d.p.i. image when viewed online, but consider: the original on line NBC file source was of higher [MPEG]"res" than the original on line source [flv.] of the still from the movie"Armageddon", and so should still be of far better quality than that flv. file when compared side by side, even at 72 d.p.i. - and yet, somehow, it's not.
P.S. TV network cameras routinely cost 100's of 1000's of $' [as do a movie companies] and are therefor fully capable of shooting high quality footage at all times- except apparently, on 9/11!
