3D HD TV

Last Saturday I was "entertained" in the Panasonic shop in Cheltenham Spa watching a large HD 3D TV running "Avatar". Perched in front of the TV screen was a telescopic stand upon which the 3D spectacles were mounted. (Not your cardboard type but proper framed specs). I tried to watch the 3D movie b...

Re: Mini DV tape - the era's end?

:evil: My contribution to Tom and Arthur's topic (re what medium will todays "young couples" have to play their wedding movies in say 2095!....) but perhaps my offering aint worth much! I recall a film from ages ago starring Michael Rennie I think it was and entitled "Lost in Space" or some-at where...

Re: MR ANGRY and the CLUB WEBSITES

WEB SITES? :shock: Well many of those that I bother to visit I confess I find interesting. However I do not spend inordinate time perched in front of a PC viewing them - as many seem to do. My view is that a club web site is perhaps a method of bringing in new members and as far as I can find out th...

Re: Home Movie Roadshow, Sunday BBC2

:( Unfortunately I've missed this so far being "up country" and no candle powered TVs that I could find! However, reading these Postings obviously full of valid comments I wondered IF someone with some clout in the IAC could re-direct their energies towards the producer(s) of these programmes and ge...

Re: Future Structure of the IAC Website

Hi Dave and Alls, IAC WEB SITE? I wonder just how many, if any, Uni's / Colleges / Schools, media departments are aware of it?
