High Frame Rate solutions

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.

What you get with Christie HFR digital cinema projection

  • Completely immersive 3D - entice moviegoers with high-value, immersive cinema experiences that they can’t get at home
  • Picture-perfect images - With no flicker, motion blur and stuttering, your audiences will notice the crisp and life-like realism of HFR cinema
  • More alternative content - HFR-upgraded cinema projection enables you to show premium sporting events, live events and dance

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.

“If watching a 3D movie is like looking through a window, then [with HFR] we’ve taken the glass out of the window and we’re staring at reality.”
