That would be the way to go. I'm sick and tired of how sony keeps teasing us.

I would be surprised to see Sony paying royalties to anyone! They seem to use pretty much their own stuff. Ever see a Sony DLP set?

Dithering (adding noise) has been a standard anti-aliasing technique since the earliest digital audio days.

I always thought that to qualify for a patent, an idea had to unique enough NOT to be obvious to a knowledgeable person in the field. The patent system was supposed to encourage development. Since the lawers got involved, it seems to have the opposite effect - oh! that's been always.

A friend of mine who holds the original patent for digitizing video (1973) suggested to me to enclose any unique circuit in black epoxy and put a part number on it!

Rant's over!

After reading the whole thread and trying to see things from both points of view, I finally gave up and fell over the following website trying to glean some more information on the hopefully pending camcorder.

Which would be completely uninteresting, were it not purportedly written by Robert Faber himself. Its a peculiar mix of 'patent speak' and blatent self promotion I happened to find very amusing. I particually like the whole written-in-the-third-person-quoting-himself bit and he didn't even use the word 'multiplicity' once.
