Just a day after Sony Chairman Howard Stringer bragged at CES about bagging Landmark as the first customer for its high res 4K projectors, Landmark ditched Sony, opting to go with Barco's 2K projectors instead.  Landmark announced the switch Friday at CES - apparently no one had told Stringer about the move before his speech. Landmark had previously installed a couple of Sony projectors and was "battle testing them", according to an email from Landmark's Mark Cuban to Cinematech back in December. I guess the battle testing didn't work out so well - Sony's 4K projectors have been plauged with delivery issues and technical problems and now they have no customers to brag about.
