As already pointed out the recent "Toy Story 2" and "Bicentennial Man"
screenings employ a black box, a QuBIT, by a company called QuVIS. This
box is storage and compression in one- a proprietary incarnation of
wavelet compression where the user specs a S/N db and the system hits
that spec. The bit rate is variable. They are quality focussed. The
bit rates can vary between 10 Mb/sec and 160 Mb/sec and even higher.

Flawless MPEG 4??? Isn't MPEG 4 designed for desk top, internet level
bit rates? Speaknig of Qualcomm, has anybody heard anything from
