You know, once again I have to laugh at the rapt attention that's being 
paid to "new" methods that have been used to finish television shows in 
the US for almost 20 years now.

Regarding commercials, I think some attention needs to be paid to the 
ultimate means of delivery. "Compression artifacts" and slight 
introduction of noise mean absolutely nothing when the result is only 
being seen on a television monitor.
