Stay tuned.... I know the guys involved (I have espn's r&d cinestar on my table, uses a Procerus Kestral, unfortunately that one's grounded).

I hear it's the same company that hosted the FilmLA/MPAA event couple weeks ago if anyone here attended (it ran with the usual technical difficulties :)  + following Q&A with the 6 exempted companies, decent event). They have the common setup we all know:
