H.264 is not truly lossless, no matter what bit rate you choose [technically no digi video is lossless, but thats a whole nother discussion i have no interest in arguing]...i'll also note, the accuracy of the info in that link isn't exactly spot on...hell, they have ATRAC listed as "Advanced Lossless" audio
cause it is. ATRAC Advanced Lossess is... lossless.
i enjoy wiki for a broad overview, but when I wish to learn more Ill search.
technobabble is often giving wiki a run for its money on mis-information

i have the feeling no one is reading the technical White Papers so sad.

Re: Re-encoded digital video

i stand corrected, i read it as ATRAC being described as an advanced form of lossless compression...not their new-est(?) codec...looks like the wolf pwns me again

but i still stand by my statement that i've personally seen no evidence of the film/video world switching to a lossless form of compression, especially not in the near future...wish it were so, but doubtful imo
