Season's greetings! I would like to personally invite you to join this year's Steam Secret Santa event, thread link below. Please drop by and help us make this holiday season a bit more merry for everyone. Looking forward to seeing you there!
IMAX shows why it's 4K digital 38 pound cameras would make you enjoy and want to see movies in 3D:
6K at 100fps max
Interstellar should be good, shot with the good old 65mm 2D IMAX camera
http://shotonwhat.com/cameras/imax-msm-9802-camera Analog intermediate too.
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 don't see why they would upgrade to standard 4K projectors now when they're developing a much better system for the year after.
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?
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 http://www.thestar.com/life/technology/2013/11/05/imax_home_theatre_to_set_you_back_at_least_250000.html 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!
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.

I will be surprised if it starts at anything less than $400. It will be sold as a premium product at first. You don't start at the bottom with new technology. When Kinect was coming people expected $60, $75, $80 tops for the camera. It sold tons at $150. If it works as advertised Morpheus will sell at $400....
binary solo said: Indeed streaming + VR seem to have a natural fit. With streaming you can make the home based processor very cheap, and thus put more of the cost and quality into the headset. This would overcome one of the hurdles associated with VR because right now you have to buy an expensive console (or PC) AND a probably fairly expensive VR headset. But if you can buy a console for...
I hope it doesn't happen but the problems you mention are not going to stop it. While movie streaming is far less costly, what it has proven is that people are fine with lower quality, old titles and not owning anything. A 480p30 game stream service for $15 a month is probably fine for millions of people. Just as Netflix charges more for 4K movies, you can have separate tiers, $25 a month for...
