The new movie technology

movie technology

Three D (3D), with its crystals fun, is nothing new. Surround sound has also existed for a long time. For those of you as old as me, remember cinemascope curved screens? All these advances have been made to improve our sense of being there watching a movie in a theater or a cinema. But they lacked anything … something, I’m happy to say, that now has come a theater near you. Digital cinema, in my opinion, is the only major development in the industry for decades. The reasons are obvious.

· You can now view equivalent HDTV pictures on a home-sized screen.

· It is not necessary to look at a printing film that takes place the third generation, which is completed with scratches, holes, burns and grains.

· The image is stable as a rock, as it does not drag the film gears on the record pins like on a traditional projector.

· Due to the film of a hard disk instead of large rolls of stock film, the presentation is not limited to the speed of 24 frames per second. Smoother pans are possible because in the digital field, algorithms can be applied to correct these artifacts.

· More occurrence of noise. Again, the sound comes from a fully digital source.

What really motivated me to write, which was my last vision Avatar®. The story line was not my butt on the seat of the theater. It was interesting, but not the most compelling movie I’ve ever seen. As an entrepreneur for businesses that makes digital cinema projectors here in Ontario (and that whenever my local theater), I was eager to see what digital projection, combined with 3D technology, could do.

It was clear that the same effect could not be produced with a 3D shot. The time was really only for M. Cameron out this epic. The technology worked. All the artifacts I detected were minor, brief and probably imperceptible by the general population. It was a perfect experience, flawless from one corner to another. I even found myself shivering from dodging a shot that seemed to fly off the screen and I felt like in my head!

So, what is in the movie experience? In my humble opinion, the quality and resolution of the visual presentation are approaching the limits of what humans can discern. So maybe the screen will come back wrapping or holograms. What about the stimulation of other senses, such as smell and touch?

And what about home cinema? If the recent Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas is an accurate indicator, 3D HDTV will soon enter a room near you. Think about it. Not only will you find the remote control on the couch, but maybe your 3D glasses.
