I know the TRW will be reproducing the Infrasonic content, will there be a subwoofer(s) to fill in the space between the mains and the TRW? If so, where do you plan on placing them?

I will let you know how it works. I relocated the test/development server to the closet.



Media Loading simulated.

That autoloader would be really freakin' sweet if it could just load dvds with its own drivers with anydvd running in the background...

Yes there are two JL audio Fathom 113's going in up front slightly sideways' unequidistant (that's a tongue twister).

I am sure there are no complains there, right?

Those JL's are great subs with excellent build quality but personally I am more of a bang for the buck type of guy

Is the DBox going in the Helene system?

Wow, the Nazis had tanks that were made by Barco?

Give me ten men like Clouseau, and I could destroy the world.

LOL!

Let's clarify the humorous montage follows my post analyzing the Industrial design of the Barco.



I compare it to the tiger 2 mega tank of ww2. Interestingly 13 of these were abandoned in Belgium in the Ardeness forrest not too far from Kuurne where Barco's are made.

The scene depicted above is from the Hollywood made film The Battle of the Bulge, one of my favorite 3 HD DVD's.

[POLITICAL DISCLAIMER: My Granfather had an interesting link to the White House during WW2, of which I am very proud. Having Graduated in 1904 from Harvard with FDR, he was able to obtain insider information to preempt Germany's declaration of War to the US by 48 hours with the Cuban Declaration of war to Nazi Germany (largely symbolic and for oneupsmanship, yet a few U-Boats were sunk). In addition the same contact was used to get a Checkoslovakian family of 8 (Pilsner Master Brewers) out of a cruiseship that was denied entry into Havana port(see movie SHIP OF FOOLS),several vessels were returned to Nazi Germany for final destination in Poland. Hey the list was shorter than Schindler's, but life is life. Therefore I come from a family that fights opression and tiranny in every shape way of form, therefore my admiration for the movie Battle of the Bulge, and my respect for German Engineering at it's best are well reconciled with my political views]. There.

The projectors are designed by a chick no less. I am sure she went to one of the museums where the T2 is shown and got inspired.

I say it is fitting becacuse with the MIT/Cineramax DP1500 offensive we are definetley going to make a Bulge in the underperforming supposedly high end market. This time however we fully expect to lick the competion.

Awesome stuff, for sure. Now tell me where I can get a job that pays enough that it'll allow me to afford this!

They can make it to 5k like DPI did, but due to 3-d capability desireability they will come out initially at 4k-1. There are some concerns with the dmd temperature. Still if only at 4k, the level of excellence in all other aspects will more than earn the PJ the Blue Ribbon.

I am now looking at Dolby digital servers, as I believe it will be far easier with this superencrypted stuff for the owner of a digital cinema projector to rent a cartridge at the same time the Bel Air crowd does. We will see. My immmediate goal is Beowulf in 3-d, with the 3-d starwars down the line.

i had a phone conversation with barco in belgium 1 hour ago about such a pr.

they told me that till today they not decided to make such pr. but
it is very likely that they will have such a high cr. 1500 unit till middle 2008.

i ask about what they can get out in cr. and they told me that with this new
0,98" cinema chip (that is btw already dc4!) they will get 3000:1 or a bit more.

The improvement is from native 2000:1 with the 1.3" DMD to 3000:1 with the current smaller DMD. Unfortunately, my guess is that he was talking about native. I am also guessing that the best they will do is 4000:1 at very tight D65 and about 4500:1 with dE increased to 2, which would still be better color performance than any consumer projector.

Wolfgang the projector is made in Kuurne but selected components are made in the USA for a Barco Var that caters to postproduction. This is not a fantasy. Most likely there will be demoes come January.

Sweet. It looked like a work in progress since it was only in the outline stages. It looks like it is turning out good. Thanks for posting it!
