If anyone is thinking of coming from the Wet Coast, Jetblue is the way to go. I saved $200+ over Expedia. THe only thing with JetsBlue is that they don't serve meals, saving money.

I'm hoping my garlic salami with goatscheese sandwich doesn't affect anyone...

(I haven't actually booked yet, but wil any day).

For those tuning in late, our DVX "BlendZilla" processor is from Analog France, a broadcast grade switcher with some interesting capabilities; eight inputs including SDI and HDSDI, dual transcoders, and dual exotic scalers that can redraw a 16:9 source into squarish "halves" that seamlessly overlap at the screen:














This technology, known as edge blending, enables us to light up the full height of the phosphor and the use of larger screens in the range of nine to twelve foot width.

Paired with two nine inch CRTs, figure on the equivalent of over 500 ANSI lumens!!!

I was thinking of bringing my wife by so she can see that there are folks out there that have a much more serious HT addiction than me.

Let me know if you need an extra set of hands getting this setup. I'd really like to see how you put the SMX screen together. I'm not in the same league as the rest of you guys, but I'm only 15 minutes away on the other side of Bull Run Mountain. And you can call me Bill Belcher instead of wmbelcher.

Mark Connor is coming and staying at my place so he should be added to the list.

I am thinking of have a barbecue for the whole group at my place on the lake, logistically though I am about 1 hour away. Easy drive though.

I probably won't be attending the actual showing though. Political reasons unfortunately but fortunately not involving Tim, Curt, Ken, or the host.

Why not, I think it would be good to have as many people as possible there. Unless of course some one invited those folk from the white house, then I'll not be there either.

I'm looking forward to this event, and I'm expecting it to be a great event. I could not see any reason to not show up, especially since it will be a good opportunity to be around some great CRT folk. If there's anyone interested in coming that has a political agenda or anything else that could hinder the spirit of this event, they should not come. But since I don't know of anyone that would have bad motives, then all should be well.

It's all about the performance... Got Marquee!

I am going to pick up a set of HD10F lenses I received today. I will try to get another set before Gino's visit; but at any rate we probably will compare HD10F to GT17 (and even to HD10 if time allows).

For me this is the culmination of 2 years of planning and waiting. I am already working hard on the setup (dedicated bat cave, treated for sound insulation and proofing -it even has a special acoustic door-) but I am refraining of posting any pics until IT'S DONE!!! The only thing I can say is that if the 5 meter wide screen looks bright (even if I overdrive the tubes hard) it will be amazing!

Those HD10F's should help with the blend. The HFQ900's certainly helped with my focus from edge to edge.
