I'm hoping somebody can offer me their advice on some HD footage. I create a computerized Christmas light show every year and this was my last year, thus I hired somone to create a professional video for me of it. He has sent me a "rough draft" version and I have a concern, however not sure if there is just something I don't understand. The video is in HD, however when I play it on my 42" LCD the black night sky is "spotty". It appears that it is made up of 1/2" pixels. This does not occure when I watch a HD movie and there is a black scene. I did ask the videographer and he kinda blew it off like "it's normal".
Why is this occurring and can anything be done about it.
The full file (252 MB) can be downloaded here. I've also cut a 20 sec segment from it for ease, which can be downloaded here.
Thanks for any assistance.
