Forgive me for my English..not to spoil all the fun but isn' t this epson 4k lcd instead of dlp? More lumen but less contrast ratio. How about the colors?
BTW Philips has a watermark system that detects where a film (location time etc.) has been copied by any means (but it may be to expensive for the distributions company's). I used to be a operator at a movie theater. For the digital films a hard drive went sent by a courier and a limited key (by time and date) went sent by mail or usb stick.
I am not a red owners jet but i really wish to jump on that wagon as fast as it is possible for me.. Red does amazing stuff ...red ray 4k at 10 mb/sec AMAZING
I seem to recall that there was some speculation in the past that RED would/could bring to market a 4K projector at a RED price point...sweet spot is circa $10-15K. I think there could be several thousand of us RED owners ready to buy at this price point.
Now if you can build a 4K camera from scratch, how difficult can a 4K projector be...Jim, we know you are well up for a challenge
Anybody heard anything on the actual shipping of production run Epson 4K projectors?

But something tells me the big boys won't let this go as smoothly as it could.
Though I still think that the number one concern filmmakers should have, from Jim Cameron to an independent Iranian filmmaker should be fighting piracy.
We're not far from the day when most people will have a fast enough internet connection to be able to download an HD movie in 5 seconds.

But then they have to protect the files or use a special player for it or something... and maybe this system already exists... but I haven't tried anything.
It's so weird to me that so many people were/are up in arms about the whole DRM thing... what do they expect us to do? Just give these products which are brimming with intellectual property to them with no safeguard whatsoever?
I think DRM is a pretty hassle free way to distribute digital media to the end user while at least trying to do something about piracy... Obviously if one is so motivated, there are plenty of ways to remove DRM from a file... but it's still better than just letting people download things with no way of even trying to prevent them from giving it out all over town (or world).
And yet people complain like this is some sort of personal attack on their liberty or something... madness.
I have to agree with Eirik on some leven.
I'm make content too, and I also buy all my movies legit.
But I have to see 4 trailers that act like I am a thief while I just bought the damn product! Meanwhile, the 'thiefs' just rip the movie and don't bother with those trailers. So those trailers only reach the people who buy their stuf legit, and as been said: it's really a major annoyance to have 4 non-skippable trailers before you see a movie. If I look at a dvd from Warner Bros from years ago, it seems so much fun now: put the dvd in, go straight to the main menu.
The trailers aren't the same as DRM though, and I agree that it's a very difficult line to maintain. But as iTunes has proven: you have to make it EASY for your clients. It has to be easier then the pirate-way, and in the movie studios seem to make it harder for people to legit download then to pirate.
Like the 'digital' copys they give with some dvd's and blu-rays now. Great idea, if I want The Dark Knight on my iPhone, I don't have to rip it anymore. But oh wait? You can only access it trough Windows Media Player and you only could use the code one time, and ... ...
Since iTunes went DRM-free I bought 500 tracks on it (versus not one before and before I had difficulties to imagine myself pay for a download) and no, I didn't gave the songs to someone else.
