Full screen. Norris Theater. Choice middle location. I'm guessing most
elements were 1.85:1, All were flat.

No screen door. There was RP40 projected by all systems electronic and
traditional. One electronic showed a bit of resolution falloff on one

Bill Hogan can clarify this, but I believe that a projected print was
available in telecine to compare color to. The projected source was
obviously print, the telecine elements were IP transferred from both
Spirit and C reality transports from different facilities.
>What was your perception of the apparant sharpness?
Frankly, I noticed a much greater sharpness issue between individual
transfers. As you know, some of us (not I said the king...) like to use
contours and image enhancement more than others. Once you see a natural
print next to a hyper contoured IP, sharpness issues in the source are
magnified much greater than the apparent projection resolution.
