Which again is a speculation presented as a factual claim about something you know nothing about. Because the HDD will be embedded in the device, who knows whether it is expensive or not?
If the HT RedRay player sells for $1000, how expensive can tha SSD or HDD be?
See there, you came up with a link to something substantial. Mostly because of the details of Laser projections.
Diane Troyer seems to have patent claims covering every aspect of Laser projection.
Her claim is towards every company in the world that are trying to make Laser projectors.
Why you single out RED I don't know, as that is the only company she says she is unsure if her patents are infringed upon.
Question is if her patents are too broadly based to be valid when they are compared to finished Laser projection products. She has not solved the biggest problem of Laser projections; Speckle.
If her claim is valid, I hope she wins the patent claims and are awarded money from all this companies; Kodak, IMAX, Sony, NEC, Barco, Christie, Light Blue Optics, AAXA Technologies, Inc., Microvision, Texas Instrument, HDI(RED?), Evans & Sutherland, Rockwell Collins, for Laser projection products based on DLP, LCoS, LED, MEMS, GLV or any to be invented.
Can just wish Diane Troyer good luck on her claims case.
What this has to do in this thread I don't clearly see.
(You need to think out of the box, it seems that everything you post is based on RED posts.)
Of course my answers to you are based on RED post.
The origin of the information to counter your wild speculations and unsubstantiated claims about RED and their products.
Where else would I find information about RED products?
Just you that neither know how to post links or how to link to a specific post.
I doubt any posts was removed, happens rearly on the RED forum. Guess this maybe was the post you wanted to link to; http://www.reduser.net/forum/showthread.php?77171-REDray-Projector&p=990832&viewfull=1#post990832
The article states Stewart Silver 5D.
Try to connect the dots! I never said they didn't use that screen. Everybody knows RED used the Stewart Silver 5D Screen in their first public expo demo of their PJ, because that is at that time an available screen. They later hint that there will be another product for the projector.
In your own link to NAB report (if you read it), says; "and there was some obvious ghosting because there had been a last-minute switch to a Stewart 5D screen, which required some tweaking—so the demo didn't look as good as it could have."
Screen costs will vary, but it will be based on the screen size. RED just sub contractors out to other vendors. Most people will buy their 4k projector from a home theater store, so they need to have it installed. I like to walk into a store and test it out. I haven't followed RED in months, but it was suggested that RED only would sell from online. I doubt if people will drop $20 to 30K for system that they never seen.
A lot of speculations, personal anecdotes, and no real facts. Again; Wait_And See!
Looks like your posts in the projector thread got slaughtered.
I have extensive optical material engineering background with lasers and coating technology, but it is at different field. Every post you made in this thread is based on RED's claims.
You need to learn a lot about laser technology, but it seems that you don't know a thing about it.
I only know from what little is published of Laser technology in real products, just like you.
I have also not made any other claim, contrary to you.
Don't try to make you look like you have some superior knowledge before you actually prove that you have such.
You haven't done that here, and you didn't prove you know any more than anybody else in your lengthy arguments for Holographic discs some months ago.
Diane Troyer mentions getting a headache with viewing the RED 3D projector.
Tell me about the 3D display technology that people have not complained about headaches?
Laser projector technology is rather new, but it is promising. I think it is better to wait till the technology matures. DLP is mature projector technology, but so far only heard of one DLP 4K projector.
There you see how little you know about Laser Projection developments, contrary to your claims.
*Kodak developed a Laser DLP prototype projector a couple of years ago. IMAX bought the patens, and Barco will build projectors for IMAX based on that patent.
*Barco have already built their own Laser DLP projector they demoed in January (not based on the Kodak/IMAX patent).
*Christie demo's their first DLP Laser projector at IBC 2012 in these days.
*NEC possibly also building a DLP Laser projector.
*And so is probably several others, I guess.
All this you should have known by reading the Diane Troyer patents claim paper. Or follow postings Here
Nope, you seem to wrong again. No understanding of lasers at all. It has been posted on ghosting/ cross-talk issue with the Red Projector, and that is why you use a filter or coating.
*You are failing to prove your your knowledge of polarization in Laser Projectors vs. Lamp based projectors.
*Single projector projections vs Dual projector projections.
*RealD polarization device.
*Laser light polarization.
*Polarization filter on the display panel (Lcos). Polarization of the screen material (silver screen).
*No polarization filter on glasses because Left and Right eye glass have different polarization.
Try to educate yourself more before you claim someone is incorrect.
I haven't speculated at all. Only you seem to be speculating... Good luck with your purchase. RED should be out in 2014, seems they slipped to Spring 2013.
Yes you speculate, most of your posts are speculation, and you continue with speculation argument even after your speculative claims are corrected with facts, or told to wait and see when real facts are presented. You even speculate in your last sentence here. What more proof do you need?
All this discussion on Laser Projection technology you seem to be intent endlessly of repeating has nothing to do in a thread dedicated to 4K and Flat Panel technology.
I doubt anybody find these discussions any interesting, or even read the posts.
I suggest you wait for a new thread on Laser Projectors to pop-up in the front projection sections of AVS, then you can try to present your arguments there.Edited by coolscan - 9/12/12 at 6:16am
