RED teases 4K REDray player and projector for the theater / millionaire set (Engadget)

I'd definitely be interested in the projector.... The second generation, that is, if they can get it even cheaper. I think $5,000 is the max I'd spend on a display, but I'm certainly interested in the technology, and I'm surprised it's not more expensive in this first iteration. So my fingers are crossed for the second generation, but I want a new display before then. I wonder what I'll end up with in the meantime.

I've already started planning to buy this projector, so I'm saving up for it. It may come that a cheaper version is released before my projector fund hits $10k, but I will own a Red projector...I will...

Well, if you really want red, I've got a nice can of paint I can sell you for a lot less than $10K.

What exactly are you going to do with a projector of that high a resolution without any program material?

There will be program material, eventually; upscaling for now. But the reason to get this projector is because of the frickin' lasers.

Charles and I both have been seeking a laser projector. The other amazing abilities: passive 3D, 48 (or 60) fps per eye, 4k resolution; are just added bonuses in my opinion.

Yeah, the picture quality with the laser illumination is what the main draw is for me. Upscaling is fine for me for now.

Here's a thread with a few comments about viewing the short film being show with this projector at NAB.

To sum them up, "I don't normally like 3D, but with this projector, wow!"

I just read that Sony intends to have a laser projector out this fall. With Red's history, it's hard telling when their projector will actually be available for purchase. Maybe with Sony stepping up, Red will move a bit faster.

Judging from the past Sony's will cost more, with less quality/features, but will likely be released first. Regardless of what Sony offers up, I'll still get the Red.
