Technology is moving so fast. Its perhaps approximate to the years
of early cinema where there was 32mm, 10mm, 45mm etc and everyone was
having a go at designing/building a platfom which they hoped would
make them their millions. Of course we know what happened with various
skulduggery from Edison and B&H, etc.

Yes, perhaps non-spec/blockbudget cinema will go an entirely differnt way,
it already has to an large extent with the ubiquity of DVD, tape
formats and files. But the picture throw act is the issue there, not the
transport medium.
