It seems to me that correcting these kind of asinine untruths is 
precisely one of the reasons why we have a body like the TIG. Can I 
suggest that we get together to find a way to promote both film HDTV 
in a sensible and accessible way and dispel some of the nonsense that 
seems to be doing the rounds in the "media"?

For starters, how about an "alternative" TIG technical seminar at 
NAB? Just enough to attract attention? I'd be game to present a 
partisan and opinionated (of course!) paper on alternatives to CRT 

Any thoughts?
