Video Facilities 3D (Dolby)
The Dolby 3D Digital cinema system uses a standard digital cinema projector with a Dolby 3D colour wheel that filters the light path before the image is formed. As a result, the image itself isn’t modulated which preserves both colour and its quality. Manufactured by ‘Cine-Tal’ the Dolby 3D colour processor performs accurate left eye/tight eye colour balancing. That means production and post production professionals are guaranteed the same colour accuracy when 3D material is played back form any source or server and projected with a Dolby 3D Digital Cinema filter. Uses passive, filter glasses for viewers.
