From the early micro film recorders to the print media, theatrical films, HiDef video and Imax projects of today, resolution has always been an issue for computer visualization. The SIGGRAPH ET has supported 35mm motion picture projection for more than 15 years and High Definition has been in and out of the program many times.
For the following two reasons we are recommending that we master this project in HD. HD seems like the only candidate, in order for the project to maintain a high standard of quality as well as a lasting archive of the classic animation presented. From the HD master, SIGGRAPH will have the maximum flexibility for release formats, including: 35mm, NTSC, DVD, and both interlaced and progressive HD.
