company adds that in today's highly competitive
commercial theatrical market, DLP Cinema,
which works in the area of digital cinema
projection and imaging, is making it more
economical for theatres to show both 2D
and 3D feature presentations using the single
projector solution, as compared to other
emerging and commercially unproven formats.
Cinema projectors are at the heart of 3-D
feature presentations and 3-D movies have
grown rapidly through 2007 to become a key
catalyst in the expansion of DLP Cinema
systems in the U.S. 300 additional DLP Cinema
projectors are expected to be fitted with
3-D capability in anticipation of the November
release of Beowulf from Paramount Pictures,
bringing the total 3-D equipped movie screens
in the US to 1,000.
Cinema Products Group business manager Nancy
Fares says, "DLP Cinema continues to
be the driving force behind digital cinema.
As companies like Real D and Dolby continue
to push 3-D developments on DLP projection
technology, DLP Cinema installations are
surging to deliver the world's most engaging
movie theatre experience."
