Christie® used the occasion of the ‘IBC Big Screen’ theater screenings at RAI Amsterdam last week to deliver the world’s first mass-audience demonstration of a 3D High Frame Rate (HFR) D-Cinema system using a single projector – the Christie Solaria™ Series CP2230 projector – in combination with other currently-available components.

“The RealD XL Cinema System and International Datacasting’s SuperFlex® Pro Cinema™ Event Player (PCEP) are available today, along with Christie’s DLP® projectors, providing cinema owners and content owners with the foundation they need to realize new revenue streams from the projection of ‘alternative content’ sporting and theatrical events in 3D HFR,” said Dr. Don Shaw, Director, Product Management, Christie Entertainment Solutions.

Content showing the world-famous Cavalia equestrian production company in action was flawlessly projected in 3D at 60 frames per second (FPS) during Dr. Shaw’s ‘Exhibitor Considerations for High Frame Rate 3D Technology’ seminar, using the aforementioned suppliers and formatted by the SENSIO® Hi-Fi 3D compression codec.
