IMAX shows why it's 4K digital 38 pound cameras would make you enjoy and want to see movies in 3D:

4K is old hat
6K at 100fps max

Interstellar should be good, shot with the good old 65mm 2D IMAX camera Analog intermediate too.

on 05 July 2014

Yeah, I knew about interstellar.

Do you think all IMAX Cinema rooms in America will have 4K projectors by August?

June & July seems to be down time on movie releases for reconstruction on cinema rooms, especially June. Basically an intentional reason to release so few 2D & 3D & IMAX movies during June and carry a little over to July.

I doubt it, this suggests dual 4K laser projection won't roll out until 2015 at the earliest

I don't see why they would upgrade to standard 4K projectors now when they're developing a much better system for the year after.

on 01 July 2014

Figures. So either the last half of 2015 or last half of 2016 if I had to guess.

The theater I go to most often has 15 cinema rooms with 4 of them as Premium Large Format. At first they shut 2 of them at a time, but then 3 at a time. I'm not sure how many of the 11 regular cinema rooms at a time, since I always go for the IMAX style experience. But they make the seating arrangements more better, and also add more seats.

At least Batman/Superman crossover movie 3D should be an awesome experience to a lot of people come Summer 2016.

I guess advances in 3D in Cinemas is a much faster improvement, as shown per year in live action movies. The conversion alone takes only up to 3 months for 2D recorded movies as shown in Need for Speed. But CGI is the slowest improvement in stereoscopic 3D in both Cinemas & Nintendo 3DS, but the Graphics have great 3D on 3DS (varies per game).

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles looks like this year's Pacific Rim in how it entace people with 3D from what I've seen in trailers of TMNT.

Anyways, I guess you will probably get a 4K TV before any of your local cinemas might get a 4K Projector, huh?

on 01 July 2014

4K projector first probably, it all depends on when physical 4K discs become available, and when the projectors are affordable.

The closest UltraAVX theater to me is 52km and is only playing Transformers in 3D. I wonder how long it will take before I can watch a 2D 4K movie in a theater.

I wouldn't mind one of these but my wife says no. My bank probably agrees with her. The IMAX player alone sets you back $38,000, but you get to watch new releases when they come out in the cinema!

What about 4K streaming via Netflix and/or Hulu Plus and/or etc.?

on 02 July 2014

I have 80GB cap per month, < 3GB left last month, no room for 4K streaming :(
Netflix 4K is 15.6 mbps, even with h.265/HEVC it only slightly surpasses 2K blu-ray and still looks worse in darker scenes. Why spend thousands on a tv or projector to watch heavily compressed video?
Plus it turns out the new Panasonic 4K tv (AX800 series) can't handle Netflix 4K. Be careful before you buy.

Please sign my Petition:

haha you're barking up the wrong tree. Where can I sign to get Star trek 3 made for 2D only.

on 01 June 2014

LOL, but thanks for giving it to me straight.

FYI everyone who seen Star Trek Into Darkness in 3D loved it.

I know that IMAX has been using digital 4K Cameras to record like 3% of their own movies in, in the past few years.

But are you sure about the new Digital IMAX cameras being 4K?

Because they were just recently made, and has only been used in the upcoming film "Transformers 4: Age of Extinction, because they are soo new.

The new cameras are based on the phantom 65 that has a max resolution of 4096x2440, so 4K. Misleading name to refer to 65mm film as according to IMAX 70mm is equivalent to 18K (12K in reality) while 35mm is already 6K.

A step back from 70mm film cameras, not that it matters as theaters are just now just upgrading to 4K projection systems. Film prints are being discontinued.

Once the switch to 8K is being made, those old 70mm movies will still look sharper than the 4K stuff that's made now.

on 22 May 2014

Thanks, big time. Love the info.

Digital Games vs Video vs Music vs Books

in Gaming Discussion 6 hours ago

It would be nice if they split out digital video into purchases and rentals too. The physical rental market is disappearing, but how many people switch to (legally) collecting digital movies. Are all those books just for entertainment, no professional and college literature? It seems pretty high. I read a decent amount a year, but still watch far more movies and play far more game a year. Takes...

Why are constant firmware updates a thing?

in Gaming Discussion 16 hours ago

Burek said:I don't know if you can call updates constant. They come once a month at most, and then finish installing in several minutes. If they bother someone, that person can either wait 10-15 minutes and do something else, or keep his console on standby and the update takes care of itself. Every update brings some improvement, no matter how big or minor it is. I'd rather wait 10 minutes...
