Dual Projector Digital 3D Brightens the Future for Cinemas
Atlab Image & Sound Technology (AI&ST) has supplied and commissioned the first two-projector stereoscopic 3D commercial digital cinema sites in Australia and New Zealand. The sites, in Brisbane, Australia and Auckland, New Zealand were ready for the release of Disney's feature, "Meet the Robinsons".
Using the newly updated Dolby Digital Cinema System and separate left eye and right eye projectors that are fitted with fixed circular polarising filters, the sites are able to reproduce 3D images with stunning depth and clarity.
Ben Wilson, AI&ST's Sales and Marketing manager comments: "Because there are two projectors, this system provides greater light output than active-shuttered single projector set-ups used elsewhere. This means the system can be used in cinemas with a larger seating capacity. Additionally, no third party license fees are payable. Both factors positively contribute to greater box office potential."
From March 29 (March 31 in New Zealand), "Meet the Robinsons" audiences wearing state of the art 3D glasses will be transported by digital projection to the world of Lewis, an orphan with a genius IQ and a passion for inventing.
Based on Texas Instruments DLP Cinema(tm) "dark chip", the feature rich CP2000S is designed to deliver high performance projection for a variety of screen sizes (up to 23 metres). The CP2000S user interface, a simple touch panel, ensures personnel are perfectly at ease when using the Digital Cinema Projector.
Dolby(r) Digital Cinema system.
The Dolby(r) Digital Cinema system supports both JPEG 2000 and MPEG-2 file formats. The system offers superb picture quality, simplified operation, and outstanding reliability, plus the highest level of security in the business.
To make sure your transition to digital runs smoothly, the system meets Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCI) recommendations and integrates easily with your existing automation and sound systems.
