MasterImage receives patent approval for 3D technology

April 25, 2014

MasterImage 3D announced the approval by the Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO) of its key patents 10-1387096 and 10-1387097. Worldwide patent applications are in progress.

The patented technology enables high-brightness 3D image projection in cinemas using a three-beam optical system. In order to improve sharpness and clarity of 3D imagery onscreen, the three-way beam technology provides optimum alignment between pass-through and reflected images, which is superior to processes used by existing two-beam solutions. Incorporating a novel precision polarized beam-splitter (PBS), the MasterImage 3D method achieves higher performance of polarization and support for throw-ratios as low as 0.8, the lowest in the industry.
 
This newly patented 3D process is the technology behind MasterImage 3D’s MI-HORIZON3D digital-cinema system. The MI-HORIZON3D debuted this year at the annual CinemaCon tradeshow in Las Vegas, demonstrating the potential for cinemas to deliver up to 14 foot-lambert (ft-L) 3D.
