3D films are becoming all the rage with cinematographers at the moment. The only problem is, the twin lens cameras used, basically double up on everything, including operating costs for film or digital storage space.

Of course, there is also a slight issue in that when projecting the film back, two projectors are used, in sync with one another, which generally means the brightness of each is lowered as they have to overlay. The resulting image is crisp, but individual elements are often dimmed, as parts of them are only really seen from one camera angle, and thus only lit by one projector at half the brightness of everything else.

California-based cinema projection firm Christie has recently announced its Brilliant3D technology, which they hope, will help reduce operating costs, and eliminate the brightness issue

Brilliant3D allows 3D content to be projected in full 2K pixel resolution for digital cinema. Following the successful demonstrations with RealD at IBC in Amsterdam last month, Christie's new technology provides 33% more brightness for 3D content than the dual projector systems currently installed in cinemas and uses only a single lens system.

"We're very excited about this technological development from Christie. This advancement combined with our RealD XL system enhances the 3D experience tremendously. Together, we can fill screens up to 75ft in width with true triple-flash capable technology, making 3D films even brighter and clearer," noted Joseph Peixoto, president of world-wide cinema, RealD.

Craig Sholder, vice-president of Christie's Entertainment Solutions stated, "With more than 15 new movies slated for 3D release over the next 18 months, Christie's new Brilliant3D will enable exhibitors to project 3D movies onto the largest screens--while reducing both lamp and electricity expenses. Christie engineers initiated development of this technology so that audiences would have the most compelling 3D experience."
