Hello. As a regular Wikipedia reader, I appreciate the broad coverage of virtually any topic one could wish to learn about. I don't blindly trust Wikipedia to have accurate information on the subjects, but even so, when researching for a more academic project, Wikipedia is often a good place to start my search if only to learn what I DON'T know, to get a general overview of the subject, and of course to find links to professional, peer-reviewed, primary sources.

I have noticed that the reliability of Wikipedia's information seems to have dramatically improved in the past 2 or 3 years. In years past, Wikipedia was almost a joke - it contained articles on all sorts of subjects, but they might as well have been satire. Nowadays, while you still shouldn't trust the information here (nor should you uncritically trust anything you read), it is more likely than not to be correct and informative. I don't know if this is due to different internal editing policies, or a more rigorous and transparent oversight process (possibly because with more editors there are more eyes to catch mistakes), or what...but this is a very good development.

Lastly, one of the primary advantages to a dynamic, user-edited, online encyclopedia is of course its ability to stay current and timely. That brings me to this article - it seems to have been written 10 years ago, and has not since been touched. There don't seem to be any other articles on Hi-Motion here either, so we're stuck with out-dated information. The historical information of course is still valid; it's the sections about current digital and HDTV that need attention. How does Hi-Motion figure into today's TV, video and film environment? These days, with the pace of advancement in digital and other technologies, 10 years is a very long time indeed. It encompasses multiple generations and evolutionary steps in consumer tech, and entire phenomena and industries can be born, live, stagnate and die, to be replaced by something different, or discarded entirely.
