At Display Summit in June, one of the sessions was titled “Pushing Color, Dynamic Range and Frame Rates.”  For anyone interested in improving the viewer experience of UHD displays, the three presentations in this session were eye opening.  In addition, there was a short session titled “Improving the Projected Image,” also important with people concerned with image quality.

The Ultimate UHD TV System

Joe Kane (Joe Kane Productions) presented a talk titled “The Ultimate UHD TV System.”  Mr. Kane specializes in the sciences of electronic imaging and accurately reproducing video signals on display devices.  He’s a very standards-oriented person, and believes, for example, the colorimetry of a display should match the colorimetry of the video standard of the content being shown.  If the content is based on Rec. 709 (HDTV) colorimetry, the display should have Rec. 709 color primaries.

Today, I am proud to present my first own documentary production.

The topic of the film is Bitcoin because I have always been interested in Finance and Technology, and Bitcoin represents the perfect intersection of both. Moreover, of course, Bitcoin is very controversial at the moment. Several Governments try to ban it, Nobel prize winning economist call it a Ponzi scheme and the media is sceptical about this “magic Internet money’. At the same time, however, others call Bitcoin the most important technology since the development of the Internet. So far, it stands as the most profitable investment in history (!) and professional Silicon Valley and Wallstreet money is starting to flow into the ecosystem. After having spoken with the leading experts in the field it is clear to me that very few people truly understand the implications that Bitcoin will have for privacy on the Internet, international money transfers, central bank policy, the developing world, and the entire banking sector.

Our Kickstarter campaign contains the usual rewards (credits, downloads, DVDs) but we also have special goodies such as the 10 Trillion Dollar note from Zimbabwe – the most recent example of hyperinflation and mismanagement of monetary policy (Bitcoin is deflationary by design). Please check it out and share the link below via your channels.

Note: This documentary is neither in 3D nor in 4k. Regular High-Definition is what makes most sense for this particular subject.

I think we all agree that glasses-free 3D is the ‘holy grail’ of our industry and thre are many autostereoscopic projects and products already in the market or in the pipeline. And many of you are aware of the first lightfield camera. This is a real Sci-Fi project about lightfield projection by the MIT Medialab. Here is the explanation video.

 

Thanks for the heads up to Engadget and StereoscopyNews.

Great post and some food for thought. Please read it here.

Very well designed and thought-through crowdfunding campaign by Dimenco.

 

We have written about Kings of Baja before here and here. See for yourself why we are so excited about this film.
