- All the effort you put into 24p to give your program a film look may
disappear on consumer TVs.  Micronas will be demonstrating Real Motion at
next week's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.  The system uses motion
compensation to create missing frames:

When I attended a brief demo of a pre-production model for the new Sony 4K
projector early this year, they showed a clip from an old black and white
movie shot on 65mm film. It showed a very slow pan of a row of people
standing side by side as the camera entered the town. An incredible amount
of stutter. I couldn't track the motion of Spiderman jumping along
skyscraper facades either.

So afterwards in the projectionroom I asked to be sure, if they were having
any latency issues with the reflective lcd panels.

'Of course it is still film', was the direct response from the developer,
who told me the panels had a 5 ms switching time (the smaller panels in the
vw-100ht are slower at a minimum responce time of 8 ms).
