It’s time to make sure your light levels are correct and everything about the picture is correct.
Barco projectors which will show the film are installed in 100,000 cinema auditoriums worldwide, with 30,000 of those being the higher brightness laser-based systems. 25,000 screens are additionally equipped with the Barco Alchemy media servers that enable high frame rate projection. “On 3D, we are doubling down and getting a lot of questions from customers, because 3D has been a little in the background, but [the industry is] trying to get back to a great 3D presentation. We are working together with partners like RealD and others to make that happen.”
