Unless the camera is used almost exclusively for eFx, really high end 3D or to take advantage of it as an alternative to the 15/70 (as the write-up touts), I can see some really big hurdles in the path of this camera becoming even a moderately successful acquisition system . . . It seems the makers would like to think it could, otherwise why sink so much money into it?
However, it is nice to see some companies are still betting on film as an origination medium. It seems at this point sinking $1 million for R&D in a 65mm film camera system is either visionary or completely insane.

It's the exact opposite direction that I believe the we should be taking with film recording equipment

This is from Jonathan Kitzen. About a dozen years ago, he was an early importer of the Russian Konvas cameras.
MKBK is the Moscow Cine Apparatus Design Bureau.
Despite the german electronics this is basicly a russian camera.
In which case, the stereo system is probably the Russian Stereo70:
& the older cameras they're modifying are likely these:
Stereo70 uses 2 S35 size frames in a 70mm frame.
Here's a page explaining how this can be used for an Imax digital blowup;
