Great summary of Cedia, thanks! One thing though is me and some of the other AVS guys from what they reported in the projector forum were told the Sony was being displayed on a 179" diag (13' wide) ST130 screen, not a Firehawk. I had 2 different Sony reps tell me this at the show since I had to ask around a bit to find out what screen (size and gain) they were using and both told me ST130 (neither were sure on size though which Mike reported on later in the forum). Also, black levels were a bit hard to judge in that demo considering there was a bit of light coming through the back curtain and hitting/washing out the screen slightly.
I seem to recall that the demonstrator at the show said it was a FireHawk, but when I asked Sony to confirm the material, I was informed that it was a StudioTek 130, 179 inches diagonal, 16:9. You're right that black levels were a little difficult to judge because of light leakage.
What I recall being told at the demo was that the Meridian system was one of the approved systems for use with Prima Cinema—you are not allowed to simply use Prima with just any surround-sound system, it needs to to be one that is approved by the company.
Surprised by their cander?
Not sure of the projector model (think it was the Epson 6030) or the screen, but I know for sure it was the Panamorph CineVista, because we supplied it to Epson for the show.
I'm all signed up. First time attending CEDIA (or being in Denver). Should be fun!
