Great discussion guys. I can see both sides of this having been (peripherally) involved in the exhibition side in Europe for twenty years. It's correct that the DCI consortium and SMPTE will simply not change ships at this point in time. It took long enough to agree in the first place! That is not how disruptive change occurs however. I can see RR being installed in a much larger range of venues and situations (my own interest is DS/DOOH) where security is less of an issue and the possibility of squirting 4K programme via broadband is a win. There is then a real possibility of RR becoming a de facto standard for advertising, indie festivals, independent exhibitor chains, business presentations etc., and the DCIC having to come to terms with it at some point in the future.
I am very pleased to hear of the progress on the RedRay players. Hopefully at some point we could have a public meeting(s) to really discuss the ramifications, away from the camera related stuff.
