Don't tempt me Buzz! :eek:
Any time. We've talked about this before but I'd be happy to give you a free calibration next time I'm in the MSP area. My granddaughter demands that I be there often. :)

Edit: I don't calibrate to put food on the table....
Hi buzzard,

Same as yesterday's, on Livestream, IIRC.



P.S.: We should be going live momentarily.

P.P.S.:: If anyone has questions or comments, I'm here to field them and pass them on to the presenters and calibrators.

All I'm getting is yesterday's info. ????

Hi Buzz,

We're not live yet, so it's just feeding you yesterday's news.

Verrry soon...

Annnnnnyyyyyy moment now, we might officially begin....

(twiddles thumbs)

I'm not getting the feed...
On Livestream??

UPDATE: Yeah, it went *clunk*. They're bringing it back up.
I never should have bitched about Kevin's hot mic yesterday. I think they tried to fix it and wound up with a streaming mess. :(
I never should have mooed about Kevin's hot mic yesterday. I think they tried to fix it and wound up with a streaming mess. :(
Can you not hear them? If it's too quiet, let me know.
They had multiple audio signals and we couldn't understand a word. It's fixed now.
Oops...me battery is going. I might have to power down for a bit.

The presentation by Joe Kane was very helpful in better understanding how to contextualize developments in image capture, distribution, and display. As always, he is thinking ahead of the market and hopefully the industry, in general, is starting to get what he is saying. From my experience, it seems more so now than ever in the past, based on what I hear from many angles, film prodcutions, broadcast, consumer, etc.

I highly recommend watching it once the video is available.
Thanks, also, to Robert for the kind words and love for the forums, and to Kevin Miller and everyone else who puts so much work into this event. I can't wait for the results and comments from those attending.
