Okay so living close to Alan is a good thing. It means he calls you up and says "Come over here in five minutes and you can see this cool new projector!"
So last night I went to see the new HT5000. Talk about a light canon. He superimposed that on a screen with the Sim2 HT3000 at full brightness and you could have watched a movie within it without any problems.
I didn't get a chance to test many settings, but colors were excellent and it looked awesome.
So in highly technical terms - holy crap. It's a tank too.
The bad news, as part of the crew, we're required to purchase two a year for our own demo rooms.
