Exclamation The End of an Era - The Beginning of the Next Step!!!

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!
As you might imagine, a full year of demonstrating The Kipnis Studio Standard - Beta System (for more than 700 lucky people - pretty much non-stop), as well as detailing my design philosophy in general for both the press and various manufacturers, has precluded doing very much research into both the Alpha (Larger) and Gamma (Smaller) systems - which necessarily require different technologies and approaches to create the same "you are there" effect.

Consequently, we are finishing up formal demonstrations for the general public, and proceeding onto several of our newest customer's who desire a Gamma System in their home or office.

Beginning September 6th, half the audio system will be removed to make room for new equipment and experimentation. We will also be shooting all new photographs of the KSS Cinema itself, and riding the promotional train around the world, once again.

So far this year, we have accumulated over 20 feature magazine articles and countless newspaper and internet mentions published in 133 countries around the world - some 250 million people are watching KSS's progress very closely - so I don't want to miss any opportunities as they arise, particularly if these will help produce better picture and sound for everyone!

Therefore, if you (or anyone) has the time, interest, and desire to experience the very best picture and sound presentation (of your personal favorites) under in a single roof - PLEASE, come on by for a complete, hand-tailored demonstration!

You will be totally astonished!!!

I misunderstood what I heard at Sony when they launched Blu-ray.

Could you elaborate, please? Sony makes many PR claims (like many companies) that may never become the truth of a product.

4K is definitely the film making trend of the future. Currently about half of all Hollywood feature movies are shot in some form of HD video. (Many use the same HDCAM SR used by television.) Digital video lends itself more readily to computer generated special effects, editing, etc. Film is cumbersome since the film stock has to be processed. Quality is lost when copies are made (each time the film passed thru a lens). Directors like the ability to see immediately the results, as well as the flexibility to shoot the same scene simultaneously from many different angles which would be impractical with film, etc. Before long, I think, film will become an outdated relic of the past.

As for down converting to 1080p its an interesting dilemma. As it pertains to our film, much like SD DVD, we'll have to compress things a bit to "fit" everything onto a Blu-ray disc, however, unlike other digital films when then next format (2K or better) hits the consumer market April Showers will be able to be viewed even better or in its native format which is very exciting. That being said even when viewing dailies back in 720p (some of our on set monitors were only 720p) the footage is very impressive. You can always down-convert successfully but up-conversion is a bit of a mixed bag.
