Wear Rogue One Glasses for the Next Star Wars

Designed by pioneering Australian 3D glasses manufacturer Look3D, who have been creating specialist 3D cinema glasses for nearly a decade, these Rogue One glasses are a big step forward in detail and screen accuracy from the ones released for the North American release of The Force Awakens in 2015. 

 Modelled on the visor portion of an Imperial Stormtrooper and the new Death Trooper helmets, they are distinctly different in design. While the classic Stormtrooper helmet design retains the white, smooth and rounded appearance that most movie goers will regonise, the Deathtrooper's plastic has a dark, ominous gleam and a slightly angular - almost insectile - appearance.

RealD Ultimate Screen: A Technological upgrade to 3D Cinema Experience

RealD is introcucing the new "Ultimate Screen" for passive polarized technology 3D movie theatres. The RealD Ultimate Screen is a revolutionary, highly sophisticated, scientifically engineered matte-white screen that delivers incredible images in both 2 and 3D formats. RealD called it Ultimate Screen because it delivers the ultimate cinema experience for moviegoers.

The Ultimate screen has a 2.1 or 2.8 gain (stereoscopic contrast 250:1 or 500:1) and brings 85% more brightness than a 'standard' silver screen. The screen substrate allows for true Micro-Perforations (150 microns) allowing a much smaller perforation without compromising audio quality. It is rigid enough to efficiently vibrate and remove all speckles from laser projection with less actuators. Regardless of what projector you use (xenon or laser), the screen is designed to deliver the world’s highest quality image. And the surface has an anti-stick coating that allows for simple, easy cleaning, including fingerprints, Coke, and Gummy bear sticky traces.

Dolby Cinema 3D Projection is Awesome!

"Dolby Cinema" is the name of the "Dolby Atmos" 3D sound and "Dolby Vision" combo. While Dolby Atmos is starting to be familiar with most of us, dolby Vision is not yet very known. But...

Dolby Vision 3D Projection

...Like IMAX-with-laser, Dolby Vision uses lasers as light sources instead of the usual high-intensity discharge bulb for stereoscopic projection. This allows 3D projection to be much brighter, and the contrast level to be much higher than with normal DLP,  increasing the brightness up to 14 foot-Lamberts  (instead of the usual 5 to 9 fL in most 3D theatres) and increasing the contrast ratio to 1,000,000:1.

Trilite Large-scale Autostereoscopic Outdoor Displays

 State-of-the-art glasses-free stereoscopic 3D displays are often limited in size, e ffective brightness, number of 3D viewing zones, and maximum 3D viewing distances, all of which are mandatory requirements for large-scale outdoor displays. Conventional autostereoscopic indoor concepts like lenticular lenses or parallax barriers cannot simply be adapted for these screens due to the inherent loss of eff ective resolution and brightness, which would reduce both image quality and sunlight readability.

TriLite Technologies (Vienna, Austria) is developing a modular autostereoscopic multi-view display with full sunlight readability and up to several thousand 3D viewing zones.
