Disney’s Beauty and the Beast [spoRv]

| PROJECTS: Released | In progress | Future | Mission & Setup |

Mission: to restore Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, to recover its original color grading, and to add the laserdisc original soundtrack.

Video sources: analog video captured directly from Laserdisc, using one of the best laserdisc player ever produced, the Pioneer HLD-X9

Audio sources: uncompressed PCM captured directly from Laserdiscs; other soundtracks from BDs and DVDs.

Subtitles sources: subtitles for all languages.


Project info:

“Beauty and the Beast” was released in Blu-ray but, altough its quality is good, is different from the laserdisc; the color grading is not what it should be, and has massive contrast problems; the laserdisc soundtrack is closer to the original Dolby Surround soundtrack than the BD.

    I do not even understand how I stopped up right here, however I assumed this publish was once good. I don’t know who you are however certainly you’re going to a famous blogger if you are not already. Cheers!
