I saw the Planar demo at CEDIA and I was quite impressed. I think they had a few picture settings wrong but never the less they were quite good. I'm trying to land a Planar projector for Kevin Miller so that he can tell us what's what.

If I remember from the press conference - they are mostly 1 chip units but there is a 3 chip unit higher up the food chain.

It will be great to hear what Kevin Miller has to say about it. What an advantage to have him as a resource.
