The future of DVD production

The New York Times has an article discussing the work of John Lowry, a pioneer in the film and video technology area who is working to make DVDs now (and in the future) the best that they can be.

Lowry's company, Lowry Digital, which was profiled by Apple in this profile is using hundreds of Macintosh computers and a $300,000 scanner to scan original negatives at 4000 lines and compress them for video use.
