HQV benchmark disk gets upgraded to 2.0

In the digital world of video one of the most important aspects of any HDTV is the video processor. And so the folks over at HQV have provided benchmark Blu-ray Discs that could make just about any proud new HDTV owner cry when they discovered that their new TV doesn't really get the job done right. Following the same trend, HQV has updated its disc to 2.0 and now it can expose HD chipsets of their inability to properly reduce compression artifacts, scale video or process color. Unlike the first version of the disc, this one also includes some calibration patterns so you no longer have to buy another disc for basic HDTV configurations. The new disc can be had for $25 via the company's website.
