"pushing limits" not just a phrase: highly dynamic bitrates, extreme peaks of more than 60 Mbps
MindCandy 1 + 2 + 3
Awaken your mind!
The 3rd and final installment of the MindCandy trilogy brings 40 of
greatest PC demos (real-time computer animated music videos) of the years
2003-2010 to your (HD)TV on both Blu-ray (1280×720, 60 fps) and DVD.
MindCandy 3 takes these poetic programs of the computer
world to the next level: Each of the demos has been optimized scene by scene or even rewritten
just for MindCandy (thanks to ryg, Haujobb, Satori, Cubic Team) in
order to achieve perfectly smooth 60 frames per second in a
mind-blowing "better-than-realtime" visual quality on HD video. It will push the limits of your Blu-ray
player and TV with its spectacular audio-visual effects. MindCandy 3 is a best-of-the-best look at
what imaginative amateur programmers, musicians and graphic artists
can do with an off-the-shelf personal computer. The demos produced
are often shown at parties throughout Europe, and are created to
exploit all of the PCs technical possibilities to the max while impressing the audience.
Each MindCandy 3 box contains both discs, DVD and
Blu-ray. The main content is included on both of them:
Main feature in 16:9 widescreen and 60 frames/s,
about 3.5 h runtime: 40 of the greatest PC demos of the years
2003-2010 polished to a high gloss
additional audio track: 1st hand background stories, spoken commentary from
the demos’ creators and the MindCandy producer
multi-language subtitles for demo
commentary: English, French, Spanish, German
The 12-page full color booklet introduces the included demos and
what makes them special.
Difference DVD / Blu-ray
Both discs share the main feature, as mentioned before. Next to the brilliant HD video quality (1280x720
in 60 progressive frames/s) the Blu-ray contains more than 7 hours of extra footage, while the included cut-down DVD version allows playback on older systems as well.
