I've recently been looking at the new Sony X-series "Bravia" LCD TVs which feature (for the first time) true 1920 x 1080 full-HD displays. The 52" model in particular produces stunning images, and I was wondering how practical it would be to use one of those in conjunction with a standard 35mm movie camera as an inexpensive video-to film transfer device.

While I don't imagine it would ever be up to Arrilaser standard, generally if the project can't afford to use the Arrilaser, chances are it would be shot on a lower-cost format where the image quality probably wouldn't justify it anyway. But in any case, if there did turn out to be investor interest, there would be nothing to stop the producers going back and getting it re-done with the Arrilaser.

Apart from that, a 52" Bravia would make an extremely impressive and cost-effective 1920 x 1080 on-set monitor, and if all else failed, you could still watch broadcast HDTV programs with its in-built tuner!
