"TV in Public".

PostFri Apr 27, 2018 10:49 am

The subject line is a statement director Quentin Tarantino made in 2012 about
the state of movie exhibition. He disapproved of the digital system being used
by theaters. He would most likely be against the next step in exhibition:

Although these have been around for at least a year (they are currently
installed in Asia and Europe) I don't know if there are any in the U.S..
These screens eliminate the need for a projection booth.

I really doubt that these are cheaper than normal digital projection. And if they are like screens at stadiums, they are likely to have small malfunctions that cause lines or empty blocks on the screen.

Is this the one that costs from $500,000 to $800,000?

With cinemas becoming smaller and smaller and the screen becoming more and more like a television - it's no wonder people stay home and watch films in their home cinemas or on large TV sets. What on earth is the difference?

Give me the old days - when cinemas were a decent size and you got value for money! Why, we had the orchestra, organ and a full programme on the first half!

"And on Friday, just prior to CinemaCon 2018, Samsung will help open the first LED cinema screen in the U.S., at Pacific Theatres Winnetka in Chatsworth, a suburb of Los Angeles, where audiences will be able to get a look at the cutting edge of film exhibition."

This is not a LCD panel with LED backlight like the infamous (for me at least) "LED" TVs. These are several true LED panels (No LCD) together.


Hope the image source for the films are better than just blu Ray and UHD Blu Ray medias. And hope they have something free of bandoing and free of digital artefacts. Otherwise it will work to show large artefacts in a true LED screen.
Keep thinking...
