Don Shaw, senior director of product development for Christie, talks about the transition from film to digital projection in commercial cinemas around the world, 2K vs. 4K projection, the release and display movies in native 4K, laser-illumated projectors, color gamuts, high dynamic range, high frame rates, 3D, answers to chat-room questions, and more.
Thanks for posting this educating video, Scott.
Also, sounds like 4K is a ways off in terms of broad adoption by Hollywood. As someone else mentioned, that puts it way off in the future for us home theater geeks.
Well done! Watched the entire episode straight through!

Maybe the home theater industry knew something we didn't? What if the reason they are pushing 4k home theater to encourage 4k in the cinema firsthand, as they may have known that 2k masters were still being used? Just a thought as it seemed 3D was short-lived for the most attention.
That transition is happening at a blinding pace. 4K will be standard in theaters and in homes before you know it.
