Re: getting the best out of digital projection

Anyone have any experience transferring film to higher quality
digital formats presumably for projection. What are these formats?
Is Digital Betacam good enough? Which is best and still possibly
within the budget of an independent experimental filmmaker. What
types of higher quality formats are shown at this point in venues and/
or festivals showing such films? What was the name again of that lab
in LA that Criterion was using? What is the highest and still
practical scan level? I know little of this and would like an
overview of the possibilities and practicalities in the current scene.
