Oh yeah, and speaking of Super Hi-Vision
, say hello to Cinevision's new so-called 2006 digital movie projector
system casts a 5000 x 2000 picture up on the screen. That's ten million freaking pixels, by our count. Granted, 5k -- what they're calling the technology because, you know, that horizontal pixel count -- is actually comprised of five projectors running simultaneously with spatially synced imaging courtesy of Fraunhofer
IIS technology. Cinevision claims that a 90 minute 5K movie will only set you back 45GB of space -- perhaps a bit much for online distribution, but a cakewalk for multi-layer next gen optical like HD DVD or Blu-ray. That is, of course, assuming they're not totally exaggerating about a totally artifact-free 10 megapixel film only taking 45GB. Watch out though, Sony
, it's the Cinevision 8k movies with 16 megapixel pictures that's what we're clearing out space for in our home theater booths; should only be, what, a few kilowatts of halogen power? Easily done.
