Title discussion[edit]

Hi. I noticed you're name at the talk page for WP:Article titles and was wondering if you could comment at this discussion regarding a website's trademarked stylization. Dan56 (talk) 22:21, 11 July 2013 (UTC)

UHDTV/IMAX note[edit]

In case you're wondering if mathematic calculation based on facts is considered original research, it simply is not: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:SYNTH#Routine_calculations

Additionally, check the 70mm and IMAX articles for the basis of the film gate dimensions, do the simple math against 4k/8k scanning (dpi, 4k) and you'll realize the NHK reference provides not only zero data for how it arrived at said graph of comparisons but that it is also flat out wrong in the first place. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.181.227.179 (talk) 07:22, 27 August 2013 (UTC)

I'm afraid your calculation is based on a misunderstanding. I've explained it at Talk:Ultra_high_definition_television#Comparison_with_IMAX. - Pointillist (talk) 11:57, 27 August 2013 (UTC)

Your HEVC edit today[edit]

That was fast! –Mulligatawny (talk) 21:07, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

I was reading the draft to see what changes had been made and decided to make updates to the article at the same time. The range extensions profiles shouldn't be changed after this meeting though there might be profiles that have not yet been added to the draft. --GrandDrake (talk) 02:40, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

submission of Daala to IETF[edit]

How did you come to your statement that "On March 25, 2015, Daala was proposed to the IETF for their NETVC video standard"? From a quick look it doesn't seem like the cited sources mention Daala, submissions, proposals, 25th of March, ... at all. Officially submitted material so far only contains documents describing individual techniques, no complete format. All of these submissions happened after March. I'm gonne remove those parts from the article - right?..--Flugaal (talk) 15:45, 5 August 2015 (UTC)

One of the references changed since it linked to the current IETF meeting and I corrected that. Both references now mention Daala. --GrandDrake (talk) 01:48, 6 August 2015 (UTC)

Still, no mention of Daala being submitted. And from what I can see in the whole collection of draft documents for NetVC so far, there's “only” a series of individual coding tools proposed, not a complete format. So I would say your wording (“Daala was proposed”) is wrong and the one I had introduced meanwhile was more precise.

Another thing: Do you think it's important to mention Opus again (with a whole sentence) in the NetVC section? It's already there in the history section.--Flugaal (talk) 10:11, 6 August 2015 (UTC)

The Tom's Hardware article refers to Daala, Daala was presented for NETVC at the March meeting, and I added another reference. --GrandDrake (talk) 02:42, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

Still, again: That following sentence is not correct as it stands:

“On March 25, 2015, Daala was proposed to the IETF for their Internet Video Codec (NETVC) video standard.”

Your new reference also does not mention Maarch 25, it only mentions a talk on Daala and not it being officially proposed for the standard. There is the complete collection of submissions that I linnked (tools.ietf.org/wg/netvc), which clearly shows that only a series of individual coding techniques from Daala are officially proposed/submitted. Also, IETF does not "rubberstamp" (as they say) any one submitted format proposal, but instead freely develop something different out of the input they get. I'm gonna edit that sentence again, as it does state wrong or at least misleading things.--Flugaal (talk) 12:11, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

Well they said in their IETF presentation that "We would like to contribute it as a potential candidate for NETVC" and Daala was the only thing presented at the March IETF meeting. --GrandDrake (talk) 12:53, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

The current wording is more appropriate, I think. Still, describing it as a "candidate" sounds exactly like a contest, where one "candidate" is chosen in the end to get this "rubberstamp". There seems to be a strong consensus against that.

Meanwhile they also have the Thor codec, which - unlike Daala - has been submitted as a complete format. And Daala devs are taking tools from it to improve their prototype. That's what it is so far: an unfinished prototype. They presented a version of it in March and moved beyond that themselves. That "candidate" they presented is obsolete. Those tools they proposed are not. They are the candidates. They will make it through the contest - or not.--Flugaal (talk) 20:52, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

The reference uses the word "candidate" so I am going by what the reference uses. --GrandDrake (talk) 02:58, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

“We would like to contribute it as a potential candidate”

Please note the use of the conditional mood in that sentence, which indicates that it is “a proposition whose validity is dependent on some condition, possibly counterfactual”.--Flugaal (talk) 07:25, 15 August 2015 (UTC)

That meeting was to decide whether to start work on NETVC and that would explain their choice of wording. Also the Cisco website states that Thor is not complete and that they are still developing it. --GrandDrake (talk) 02:45, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
