Dalsa has recently completed a test shoot using its alpha camera.  The shoot was
done in Montreal and shot simultaneously with Kodak's new 5212 film.  The test
included technical shots to determine latitude, color and motion.  A short movie
was made to test the range of cinematography of indoor and outdoor shots.

Early digital results are out from the shoot, and Dalsa will be displaying them
at the Grauman's Chinese Theatre on April 14th for review by the cinematography
and technical communities.  The presentation will be digital, playing 1920x1037
at 4:4:4 from a CineBoxx server into the 2K DLP cinema(tm) projector.  Film will
not be projected at this test.

Data from the Origin camera was captured at 4K x 2K resolution, color corrected
and resized to fit the 2K digital projector.  The images presented will be rough

Date: April 14, 2004
Time: 10-11:30 a.m.
Place: Grauman's Chinese Theatre, 6925 Hollywood Boulevard

Please feel free to invite your colleagues whom might be interested in attending
this demo.
