NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading provider of commercial LCD display and projector solutions, announced today that it is preparing for the introduction of higher frame rates (HFR) in the digital cinema industry by upgrading its Series 2 digital cinema projector line to support this new format.
NEC has performed major development to the software within its Series 2 line, including the NC1200C, NC2000C and NC3200S, with the launch of version 3.3 of its Release Package. This enables the projectors to support the HFR format with IMB input, allowing 60 frames per second in 2D and 3D, with 48 frames per second in Double Flash 3D. This leads to faster movement, sharper images and a much smoother picture. Support of HFR technology will be available for the NC3240S 4K projector in the spring of 2012.
Hollywood filmmakers, such as directors James Cameron and Peter Jackson, are already backing the HFR format, which is likely to be available in late 2012. New films such as The Hobbit and Avatar sequel are expected to be produced in HFR, improving the cinematic experience for theatre-goers.
“Higher frame rate movies will enhance the theatre experience and increase viewing aesthetics for avid enthusiasts,” said Jim Reisteter, General Manager for Digital Cinema Projectors at NEC Display Solutions. “NEC’s ability to provide our customers with this important upgrade is a testament to our commitment to the digital cinema industry.”
