I realised a little problem we might run into.
I was watching a Digital film recently and one of the primaries kept dying so the film would go all red for about a min then come back to normal. This would flicker then be OK for 20 min then repeat.
This got me thinking all these nice new digital projectors are going in all over the place - into nice brand new screens - but now there is more to go wrong. And what happens in 5 yrs when the kit is not lovingly looked after...
My old 16mm projector is simple and still works (20yrs later) . It only has 2 things that break - the motor or the light bulb. It is easy to fix the bulb and the thing doesn't work at all until you get a new motor - whereas with computers and VCR's quailty is always great in the beginning but not in 5yrs.
5 yrs from now when I am watching something in Zinbabwe on their digital screen it could get all messy.
Kind of bugged me that the screen is maybe 6 months old and it already has problems
