How do you get the subtitles in your native language in these formats? Do they come attached in the content files on the hard disks or do you need to add extra equipment to add subtitles on these formats. Are all the films released in D-Cinema include subtitles in all native languages?

2D - Right now it depends on the studio. Paramount started including different CPL's (content play list) on our deliveries (via satellite through Microspace and via hard drive) So we have the option of playing with, or without subtitles. But the studio/distributor has to include the files. The projector can also output open captions, but I haven't seen anyone use this method yet.

3D - As you can imagine, this is a lot harder. with seperate images going to your left and right eye, do you only let your left eye see it? That would at least make it so it was in a static location. Or, do you include Z axis info for all the subtitles, and have it be a 3D image? And will this cause headaches? So far as I have seen and heard, there is quite a bit of testing going on to work on this problem. When I hear something, I will post here.
