[Tig] DaVinci module in every TV?

I don't think there's the same need for color processing in consumer  
products (even high end ones) as there is for format conversion/motion  
compensation/etc. Most of the stuff people are  seeing is 601 or 709  
and has been prepped in or for those colorspaces.

Where a "conversion" capability makes sense and is salable to a high  
end consumer, I don't think a color box is.

What *WOULD* be cool is integration of cheap (uh, good)  
spectrophotometers in virtually displays. Calibration should not be  
something the user needs to know about or care about - or at worst  
they should know they can attach the little thingy and press calibrate  
and the color will be perfect on their TV. I've been in sooooooo many  
high end installs that looked like crap because none of the equipment  
had been set up properly.
