Software Programmer, cool. What kind of systems do you work on?

Atm none. I used to do most of my work on PC, msdev studio, mix of c and c++ and some optimization towards efficient assembly code for Linux (on the target system)

Have you heard of the New 3DS & New 3DS XL?

It has a more better & adavance 3D display then almost every high-end TV in the world.

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.

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.

Ahh I wondered what happened to this game. It's still alive. What the heck is Spark premium? A subscription for xp, credit boost and level upload slots? ugh. And then Spark tokens, wtf. I'll check out the free win 8.1 version, my first time using the tiles store, set up a ms account lol. Where will it end up? I've never used the tiles side of 8.1, it's disabled and emptied out. So far it...

I doubt it can do that as I'm from the generation that turns off the power bar after turning off the pc :pThe idea of stuff turning on by itself and going online is not something I'm a fan of.  I don't let my laptop auto...
