Question: how do you integrate digital projectors, a Barco for example, into a home theater to use with a blu ray player? What kind of connections and hardware do you use/need? Can you use 1080p/24? Sorry if these are off topic. I just want to learn more.

This is one of Peter's fortes.

HI Dubdo,

Hardware wise you need the projector fitted with an hdcp carte. Then just plug in.



1080p24 is best but then it gets presented at 48 fps. The projector is capable of three times 48 for 3-D triple flash, that would be better than Imax 3D temporally.

That was a fast response! Thank you. What is happening in IMAX that would make it better than what you're offering? Aren't they running 2 2k pr now, or is it 2 4k? Are they going to up the frame rate to inhance the 3D experience?

Cinermax, I sent you an email(your website email address)

I just happened to return from Imax Undersea 3D who getsa my Oscar for best 3D ever. I was able to compare, of course the resolution of Imax is way more than you can obtain presently with DLP but the ansi contrast of the Barco units seems superior. IF you can get a perfectly converged Barco (which may involve cherry picking a unit at the factory, AND PERHAPS some sort of Bribe ) and you use a Torus screen, then the tripled flash dolby system for 3D (using triple flash xpand 3d glases) will be much better than the Imax 3d I just saw.

Dub,

Your email has not come through for some reason. I will pm you.

Thanks for the PM. I sent a new email.

Is Barco working on a 4k or higher design?

Hi David, no development from TI since they won the format war new development has stopped, however on a 4 meter screen 13.13 feet the image from 4.5 feet away is phenomenally comfortable. That is the great advantage of having DCI units over consumer high end three chippers.

I am putting together a zip file for you to peruse.

Talk later...
