    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Projector setup

    Robert, I’m a devoted follower of your column and as a pseudo journalist I admire you for getting so much insight into a disciplined ‘few words’. I wish I knew how to do that! I say pseudo because I get pressed into duty when I have a topic that may interest some of my industry media types out...

    Artists can create controversy alright. Scope is so impressive its a shame to see it cut, but when its the creator who does it? Makes it perfect for my Note 8 and its 18x9 screen though:-)

    It's not Universium, it's Univisium. My mistake above on the 2.0:1 aspect ratio proposed and used by cinematographer Storaro; it is called Univisium. and he argued for some optical and film process benefits that it would provide. Wikipedia has the story. He and others continue to use it post the...

    Indeed, I couldn't agree more, we are still at the mercy of what someone doing the transfer work thought we should get, but at least they have the option of providing the image frame as intended. I see more 1.85 (and yes, it's 1.89:1 on the chip) content these days than we used to, and on a 75"...

    How cool. I knew he required the theater to buy those 70mm's as a pre-requisite to taking over that facility. I've had a few interesting conversations with him and can say his passion for quality and getting the details right is palpable, and it makes seeing movies there a real luxury. He...

    A few words about RH’s few words. What a blessing to have in our midst someone so passionate, so connected to the process, and so expert in the art and science of movies. Our mutual friend, Kevin Miller first told me about RH many years ago, and I’ve followed here ever since. Today I was struck...

    Win an Onkyo TX-NR1030 9.2 channel Dolby Atmos AV Receiver

    Ready to elevate my cinematic experience, and my speakers. Can't wait to open up that envelope of sound, and wondering what ATMOS stands for, which I'd learn from the owners manual I'm sure. Cheers,

    That sounds like a 'dust bunny', a small particle that lands on the imager. It's fuzzy looking because it's out of focus relative to the pixels. Its on only one color so the look of the 'blob' will change depending on content. D-Cine DLPs of the last few years have had sealed engines to avoid...

    Just as an FYI in our Boston theater viewing all content inlcuding pre-show was from the Sony 4K projo. As you can see the booth lights were left up, not cool. The screen was open to 1.85:1 leaving sidebars next to the 1.33:1 image, equally not cool. Otherwise I suspect the 1080p content would...

    In our Boston viewing the pre-show fanfare and TCM content was all through the Sony Projo. As you can see, the projection booth ran with lights up..not cool, and no side masking on the screen. Also not cool. Beyond that, I would expect the content quality to exhibit well on a pixel mapped 1080p...

    It's really nice to see the genuine concern for quality in cinema exhibition expressed in this forum. It's an old battle as film houses have had plenty of problems of their own in the past, which the TAP program attempted to address. But film and light was alwasy a constant. It was geometry...
