[Order situation of new products]
Sony pioneered HD digital content creation with the CineAlta system in 1999. CineAlta is now used widely for HD digital cinema production, where it can achieve the picture quality of traditional film. Filmmakers can benefit from the efficiencies of the digital production process, where CineAlta allows them to check freshly taken shots immediately, on site.
And now we are seeing the advent of total workflow with 4K in the digital cinema and high-end content markets. 4K picture quality will clearly surpass 2K which is currently gaining wide support in these markets.
From now Sony plans to develop a range of CineAlta 4K products, which will span acquisition, production and projection. Our 4K SXRD digital cinema projector is the first of these products. These products will pursue ever higher picture quality through higher resolution and stunning color reproduction.
