Tomorrow, Thursday, September 15th, I will be at CEDIA in Dallas, TX. Is there anything in particular that people here would like me to check into and report back on?

I am going to be getting a taste of 4K laser projection, and am going to be talking to Dolby about the possibility of Atmos expanding to 9.x.4 and 9.x.6 configurations (I am happy with 7.2.4, but this was requested elsewhere by 3 people already)....

Anyone want me to look into anything? I have a slightly shortened day with a private Samsung demo at 4pm and a private Epson demo at 5:15, which means that I will be losing about 2 hours of show floor time, but I also don't need to visit every Atmos/DTS:X demo this year like I tried to do in the previous 2 years because, well, I have Atmos at home. smile

Just let me know today.

4K blu ray players, anything new coming in the near future?

Tks, Nick.

Got it. Didn't see a whole lot of info listed for companies showing 4K players, but I will keep my eyes open.

I think that there might be a booth catering to semi truck drivers and new technology that *might* be ready to replace their 8-tracks and copies of John Denver's greatest hits:



(Funny thing was that when I was looking for an 8-track image, I expected to see a lot of country music, but most of what I found was anything but country music.)

Yeah, I doubt Oppo will announce or show anything yet, but I will keep my eyes open.

SERENITY, I just might have a picture for you later today. Oppo was not out on display anywhere, but being in the right place at the right time makes all of the difference...

So highlights from today:
JBL's demo was incredible. 26 descrete channels playing Atmos and then they put them into "arrays" for DTS:X (7.1.4 soundtrack).

JVC and Sony both had mighty impressive laser 4k projectors... For a might price well north of $35,000 USD. They looked great.

Epson's laser e-shift (faux-K) and their bulb e-shift projectors honestly didn't blow me away. I think that my 5 year old JVC is just as good.

4K demos were all across the board for quality. I was never sure if it was the player or the display some times.

I did, however, catch a sneak peek at the upcoming Oppo UHD 4K player. I wasn't supposed to take a picture, and certainly couldn't get one of the back of it. The guy wouldn't give any specs, price, or release information to someone not wearing a press badge...



Yup. Pretty much looks like the previous ones...
