Sounds to me like Mr. Cuban was in any case  trying to make a point of
HD's superiority (thus justification to viewers) to 35mm film. This is
what the average viewer would have understood through that interview
(whether or not that is exactly what he said), although I haven't seen
it myself. 

That's just plain wrong.

I can understand why he's got so upset about the reaction here, as far
as I was concerned my comment was a reaction to the whole comment that
was presented to me, if that wasn't the whole thing accurately then the
presentation was wrong, not him or me.
Still its woken a few people up !

Hi guys,

I sent an e-mail to Mark, I copied the posts that were
sent...

Here are two e-mails I got back.

Good, I didn't say hd was better, I said that viewers
like the video 
look a lot better. That we are looking to do
everything in hd at the 
expnse of film.

If the post people don't like it....we can let viewers
decide.

Btw, never said hd res was higher han film, they asked
why hd was 
better, I said because the resolution was higher and
then said hd is to 
dvd as dvd is to vhs

____________________________________________________

This is the second I recieved. In responce to asking
him to debate these issues...

 "Mark cuban" <mark.cuban at dallasmavs.com> Wrote:
There is nothing to debate

When asked, 100 pct of our customers perferred content
shot in hd video 
over content converted from film.
.
As I said, I know film has more resolution, but
encoded atsc versions 
of 
mpeg2 , ecoded down from telecine output doesn't get
it done with 
viewers when compared to comparable content shot in hd


If your people think they are so smart, they should be
able to find out 
what I really said before they go off

Well what do we think about that?
