CES 2006: Sony set to transform cinema going

CES 2006

Obviously a projector so large that it looks like it could quite happily double up as a component of the planet-destroying Death Star Superlaser isn’t made for private consumption; however these Sony SRX-R110s digital theatre projectors are set to start sweeping through cinemas across the US this year. Though you may not be able to actually own one you can at least enjoy its 4,096 x 2,160 resolution, 10,000 ANSI lumens and 2000:1 contrast ration in 2 hour long snippets (or 3 ½ hours if Peter Jackson is involved) at the pictures. Although it’s about time for an upgrade to the existing projector standard, there has been the slight problem of convincing both movie theatres and production companies to support this rather massive technological shift. However, the first film to do so is due out later this month and is called Bubbles.
