SeSam meets HDTV

I acquired this music video just recently.

OK, I have seen HDTV in the shops – huge TV screens with a picture so sharp that you couldn’t see any pixels from nose-touch distance.

But then I played Evanescence’s My Immortal and had to work hard to remember how to breathe again.

Details are as follows:

And this is only a mere 720p. Imagine a 1080i on a huge screen… consider a massive HDTV added to my dream-list.
