Christie’s Richard Nye on Christie Cinema High frame rate (HFR) movies & more

“Richard Nye, Cinema Sales Director EMEA, Christie talks about Christie’s involvement with Cinema, as Europe’s number one digital cinema projection provider, high frame rate technology and Christie’s involvement with James Cameron’s Lightstorm company.
This is the first year that Christie has had a cinema at ISE, using 2K DLP Cinema technology.
High frame rate (HFR) movies record and play visuals at twice or more the rate of what’s seen in today’s cinemas, meaning less flicker, motion blur and stuttered movement. The improvements to 3D movies will be particularly dramatic, creating ultra-realistic movie-going experiences, and resolving some of the issues that have been problematic for the medium.
In a move designed to accelerate the development and adoption of next-generation 3D digital cinema, Christie and James Cameron’s Lightstorm Entertainment, Inc., have signed a milestone, five-year agreement to exchange research, testing, development and technical support on the industry’s most exciting new technology. “
