IBC Logo 2011

The IBC Mobile App is finally available [the link], for Android and iOS (like, what is left?)

IBC Conferences start on 8 September, exhibitions on the 9th. The Digital Cinema-centric day is on the 12th, though there is one conference on the 11th. The EDCF day of conferences is on the 12th, which is also the last day – exhibitions close at 4PM.

IBC is offering a jillion euros if you can find the exhibition opening and closing times on their site before getting frustrated. All contestants should call the IBC’s Phil Guy. To enter you must offer him a beer by saying, “How about a beer?”

Sony projectors with RealD systems take a perceived hit in a Boston Globe article available at: A movie lover’s plea: Let there be light – Boston.com. Claims are made that, by virtue of using a Sony/RealD 3D lens pair – instead of a 2D lens – during 2D presentations with a Sony Projector, that only 85% of the intended light is getting to the patron in the seats.
