The future of cinema is sharp and smooth.
High Frame Rate (HFR) movies play visuals at higher speeds so viewers see fewer motion artifacts, as well as less motion blur and stuttered movement on-screen. For 3D movies in particular, the results are dramatic and ultra-realistic.
24 frames per second
Films shot and delivered at 24 fps have persistent problems with flickering and stuttering due to too few frames for fast moving objects to smoothly transition across a large screen. Additionally, each frame is suspended for a longer duration, adding to the overall stuttering effect.
60 frames per second
Increasing the frame rate not only provides more frames to better represent fast moving objects, it also provides increased image detail as the camera shutter is open for 2.5x less time per frame.
For the cinema business, adopting HFR projection means increased audience satisfaction, more repeat patrons and a growing bottom line.
For directors and cinematographers, HFR technology offers a new medium for storytelling. The wider range of camera moves that HFR supports give filmmakers enhanced creative freedom.
Christie Solaria™ Series digital cinema projectors, with laser and Xenon-based illumination, can be upgraded to show feature film and alternative content released at 48 or 60 frames per second (i.e. a high frame rate), by adding Christie’s integrated media block. Christie IMB, when added to Christie Solaria Series projectors, provides full 2K HFR 2D and 3D support for feature film content.
