In the setup for this presentation, projection engineers calibrated the system using brightness measurements taken towards the edges of the screen, rather than at the center. The abundance of light available allowed the center brightness to be reduced considerably and still provided luminance measurements in excess of six foot lamberts (ft-L) across the better part of this massive 70-foot-wide screen.
“With the new RealD XL-DP Cinema System, there is a technical solution for achieving 3D brightness at 2D light levels on some of the largest movie theater screens in the world,”
using Christie’s Pureformity Color™ Technology to ‘control’ the center brightness, allowing us to obtain the most uniform image possible across this large (Silver) screen.
Early users of this combination of the XL-DP Cinema System and dual DLP projectors report 3D presentation brightness at 2D light levels on screens as large as 92 feet (28 meters).
Introduced in February, the Christie Duo is a new dual–projector integration kit intended to give exhibitors the ability to create and deliver their own, branded premium theater experience.
Aha, I hadn't seen his tagline, yet. Simply overlooked it. I guess Barcos promote and sell themselves.
Sorry to hear about you losing your job, Marc.
rest assured and thank you for your worries but I left Barco for a better world No more travel, it was hard on the family, and I work 3km from home. I now work for a Barco customer doing very creative stuff. I an in R&D and have the chance to play with really nice toys. http://www.chaoscreation.ca
As of Jan 2012 I no longer work for Barco. So my comments do not represent the views of my former employer but only my own.
