NICHT KORREKT HERR PROFFESSOR!
Oh yes you can. It turns out that there are two 4K chips, with two different upgrade delivery dates (one better defined than the other).
The first upgradeable projectors from Barco to come to market are the the DP2k-XX .98", these should be upgradeable sometime after 2012. Shipping beginning of 1st Q. They ship soon but are upgradeable after the big one.
The second upgradeable projector for Barco is the DP-3000 replacement (the big Kahuna shown behind closed doors with armed guards and all
) ships End of 1st Q 2010. That is the one that will be delivered to Cinemark in 18 months with ENHANCED 4K.
Enhanced 4K means a 2 part signal: 2k + the differential component (to show the extra resolution). The 4k enhanced server technology will be available next year.
BOTH 1.38" and .98" platforms are enhanced 4K ready, they all have the same bandwidth. Both WILL BE UPGRADEABLE, it's just we know when the 1.38" happens(which is 2011 the other is when TI decides). But the road map and product upgrade-ability is there.
The new series 2 .98 can do stereo 3-D 60 fps TRIPLE FLASH 180 ( that just left the Titan 3-D spinning back there on the floor with it's measly 120 double flash).
The HDMI connector is not on the projector per se, although the dual DVI's will accommodate the high bandwidth 3-D triple flash over DVI now.
The Blue Ray 3-D is clearly going to have both kinds of 1080p60 and 1080p24 (the chipmaker guy in the other forum has stated so)
The hdmi is not in the projector (although the badwidth is all there)The HDMI 1.4 is in the IMB. The HDMI in the IMB replaces the dual dvi stereoscopic connection and will also take in 4K.
The IMB has a PCI express connector from the storage vault then the audio comes out with the correct delay out of the projector.
So to recap all new series 2 Barcos will be upgradeable to 4K at one time or another, if you live long enough.
