Sony Digital Cinema is introducing a new 3D offering to allow exhibitors to screen 3D films on two Sony DCI-compliant 4K projectors: the SRX-R320SP and the SRX-R515P.
Each of the projectors will work alongside a polarising filter system (the LKRA-005) and Sony’s unique 3D dual lenses.
David McIntosh [pictured], Senior Vice President, Sony Digital Cinema said: “I believe the arrival of our new 3D system really cements Sony as the total solution provider for cinema. With the projection system, server, theatre management system, remote monitoring and field support all available from Sony and our dealer partners we can deliver a truly superior visual experience for all our customers. Together with our VPF Program and finance solutions we are proud to continue to build our long term commitment to the Cinema industry.”
Premiere Cinemas is the first cinema in Europe to be equipped with Sony Digital Cinema 3D. Located in the Park Hostivar shopping centre in Prague, it will be able to support 3D films on four of its eight screens.
David Jelinek of Premiere Cinemas added: “The new Sony 3D Cinema solution has had a significant impact on our business. Not only does it mean we can offer a greater variety of content to customers, but it helps bring the films to life, making viewers feel closer to the action and creating a truly immersive viewing experience.”
The Sony 3D system also allows exhibitors to show high frame rate projects.
