Yes, well 80% is passing.
I don't pretend to know all things alternative content on DCI spec equipment. That is not my area. However, many a owner sees the money from renting out screens for presentation, birthday parties, private screenings, etc. So i am getting asked again and again how to do this so a 16 year old kid for a projectionist can do it.
I have found two products i really love, Christie SKA-3D, multiple input's, HDMI 1.4b, 3D BR. Easy to integrate with standard equipment, rack mount, will decode any audio, will run dual projectors for best 3D. Simple plug an play, just like home CE.
For HTPC, BlackMagic Design DeckLink 4K Extreme. As we both know, big projectors love HD-SDI inputs
Audio takes some extra effort but can be done. I projected Planet Earth on BDR with this set up, on a 80 foot screen, you would be hard pressed to tell it was alternative content, you would have to look very hard and know what you are looking for. The owner told me nice, but i want Blu-Ray not DCP, and i told him, this is Blu-Ray! And it was a Barco 4K
Both of these are a easy way to get alternative content on large screens and look good.
