A) In my head 99.99 percent of the atmos setups ive heard in any shows or movie theaters failed to recreate the seminal Gravity premiere.
B) For cedia I attempted to copy the side reinforcement part and where there was a top it works, because i had rear back sides it also worked in defining the 3-4-5- seat 2nd row from back exclusion box that created that magical experience some heard. It also is the second time i heard with the man from uncle what i heard with the houston houston circling my head.
C) DO NOTE I RECREATED A 128 object RMU playback reference experience on a 16 object home MIX. CAN YOU IMAGINE ACCOMPLISHING THAT after 3 years of not been able to in any atmos movie theater?
Again no one can dispute what i hear or not, i kill cedia ever single time, this cedia I have been moving speakers on poles since november, and stocked up on an entire DVD=A sacd multichannel collection, and have downloaded every atmos and hdr title (too many ) on kaleidescape and have been sitting here listen for clips where the soundtrack is best.
This was a hunch reinforced with a BIG payout, like Mark so adeptly communicates he enjoys the rewards of those moments like he di at axpona last month. This is exactly the same phenomenon validation on listening test of a hunch with the best possible system on earth..
What was missing at Cedia that Could be improved, The Moab effect, and like overkill is my middle name i decided to limit the range of the 10 tops to just 3 rows and time delay compensate. So I already was going to pack them 10 mofo's on the former daisy cutter target zone, synchronously finding the guidelines before cinemacon offered by the damaske and Wagener effect (pointed as miked in that experiment) a layout that conveniently matched my MOAB ideas of December by identifying these thresholds of better differentiation of speakers packed in such close proximity. Call it whatever you want , as used in that experiments that perfectly suited my gut feeling.
D) I can confirm that with 4 tops the 40 60 tf and tm sound freaking incredible, further confirming I am on the path to ultimate immersion maximum tops separation. That moving goal that makes so many people uncomfortable, the progress of the always moving IMMERSION 2025 ideal. In 2025 I write a book and retires and then scientists can scrutinize how i accomplish.
By chance during the 4 year creation of immersive audio and laser projectors I was the best funded R+D subjectivist immersion designer, by chance, But I have been putting my time and paying my dues, 45 years doing not stereo but quad, then time delay, then surround sound. I have been a quest for maximum immersion sound and HDR looking images ( i did not us an acoustically transparent screen till Helene in 2006 , always torus, solid curved, beiner solid curved and optical not diffusive rear projection as I wanted that HDR Pop). Guess what ? In my mind after developing techniques to create great audio for solid screens for 4 decades, and feeling like the odd man out, I feel vindicated and re-energized.
Sorry that I live and breathe this crap, you are much younger than me, someday you will be huge.
I also have a strong Engineering by osmosis background helping in the family business as a kid doing mega million dollar stainless steel process, packaging, and bottling Industrial installations in Fortune 50 for my Dad and Brother both serious engineers, my great grandfather buddy of FDR another famous engineer. I have been hanging projectors and screen on unistruts for 40 years, and my installations aim for innovation perfection where it counts, not on the marquees, popcorn machine and that quaint nostalgia to times where people did not have the technology we can exploit.
.And I am not en engineer, but bring them. Let the market shake it out. As of now come end of June we have the worlds first Quested Altitude 35 speaker system elevated with a projector better than what shown at cinemacon, in Germany installed in a state of the art way. The image you saw at Cinemacon on the Thor HC will have 500:1 more on off contrast and be approx 12 percent sharper.
It is clearly explained above that I am on to show the world at CEDIA Again, how I think Atmos should be done based on my considered investigations, 24/7.
Perhaps when I was working in Russia or jobs in Istanbul i did not bother ypeople by posting in this forum, but I do not like living worried about Russian Tanks or Isis attacks or Coup d'etats. I invented the high end video business in Miami, inspired by a rich culturo-technological heritage to make it better. Joel and Joe, copied my idea from stereophile 94 with runco and I lost my power there. Now I earned it back the hardest of possible ways. cut me some slack. Jeff will see and hear everything and can look at other options. My concept am not afraid of failure because I really know deep down it is the best approach to me, if the others like great, if not i tried, the answers will reveal themselves during the way...
Jeff does not want to be a guinea pig with me on anything,(but quested was not a bad one Jeff
) i know that, wait until he sees and hears what I have in store. I am laser focused in 4 moons of saturn if i get to 6 then i price myself out of the market and disappear there is plenty to go around Adam in the USA . I love you but you know I have one strike and I am out in this forum, so use the how to win friends and influence people approach with me, as CEDIA cost me a nut, and when i got back I had an identity theft saga that I just still recuperated, now I will show AT cedia AND IF IT DOESN'T WORK I'LL DESERVE IT, BUT ....i'm seldom wrong as I live in constant pursuit of the truth ( for our field).
I will try to change my writing style to a more scientific white paper approach just for you in June, since I will be dealing with more manufacturers moving forward. Cheerio.
