Upgrade to take place across the UK, Ireland, Germany and Denmark.

Cinema operator Vue Entertainment International is converting up to 400 of its Sony 4K projection systems at screens in the UK, Ireland, Germany and Denmark to Sony Digital Cinema 3D.

The phased conversion process is scheduled to start this month and will extend over a three-to four-year period, covering a total of 394 screens across the group’s Vue and CinemaxX branded European estate.

Unlike ‘triple-flash’ systems that rapidly present different images to each eye in turn, the Sony Digital Cinema 3D dual lens aims to provide flicker-free 3D images without distracting flashing effects.
