211WAC Mea Culpa Too
- Jan 1, 1904A preliminary hello from Houston
I'm still in recovery mode from WAC, but I was glad we could meet on
production and on standards for full dome. The agreement that we
need to work together to have critical theater mass for getting
productions made was very important. I'll try to get my report together
on all the marketing comments over the weekend.
Meanwhile, what impressed me most was Passport to the Universe
showing on our dome with 4-year-old Barcos (without any tubes having
been changed) and really looking good. Thanks to Steve and Ryan.
Through a marvel of Barco switchery, we had both Sky-Skan and E&S
high def as well as our low def all playing through the same Barco
projectors. It wasn't perfect, but I thought everyone's stuff looked really
The real winner may have been Spitz. After weeks of making the Barcos
handle three different systems, Spitz strolled in, scooted their projector
between our Digistar and a small Sony projector in the center of the
room, plugged it in, and had a wonderful image in less than 4 hours.
Lots of pure envy from the Barco alignment teams.
Two other winners were the small domes -- both E&S and the
MediaGlobe. These are going to give the big domes so much more
distribution for materials -- and they both looked so good -- anything
to make the pie bigger is very exciting.
More to come.
