RealD introduces Ultimate Screen
RealD has unveiled its Ultimate Screen technology designed to preserve polarisation in cinemas.
After piloting the technology in the UK and US, RealD has unveiled Ultimate Screen following 7 years of development. Suitable for 2D and 3D films, the matte screen is moulded to control how light is projected.
It offers a stereo contrast ration of 1000:1 to reduce ghosting and create a higher quality 3D image. RealD state that using Ultimate Screen reduces traces of ‘speckle’ from projectors and is potentially ‘85% more light efficient’ than silver screens.
The technology has been trialled by chains including Odeon and AMC.
