operates at either 24fps. or 48fps. to photograph scenes that have the conventional
"third person" 2-D content, or a "first person" 3-D like, in the movie
These scenes are edited and combined in a
patented process called Dynamic Image Enhancement onto the finished 48fps
preprint master. SDS-70 release prints are run on the digitally controlled
IMPACT SDS-70 proprietary large format projector and platter system. " Pin
registration" steadiness is designed into the IMPACT projector transport. There
is no significant film jump or weave on the screen.
Prints can run for more than 2,000 passes without
damaging perforations. Conventional 24 frame 35mm prints can be extracted from the
SDS-70 master elements providing for wide release to conventional 35mm
The projector operates at 48fps and presents each
frame twice at a display rate of 96 images per second. At this display rate there is no
projection flicker and the images on the screen are brighter, sharper and clearer than any
motion picture film format.
significantly surpasses 35mm and D-Cinema quality.
Screens as big as 70 feet can be employed and have a
reflective light level of more than 16ft Lambert's. SDS-70 can fit into any Megaplex
without costly construction and most importantly participating exhibitors will NOT have to
buy the projection equipment. The technology will be licensed to the distributor of a
SDS-70 feature film and paid for through the "value added" admission price
paid for at the box office.
