Moody Gardens to install 6P laser projector

May 30, 2014

Christie and D3D Cinema announced that the world’s first museum-based 4K 3D giant screen 6P laser projection system will be installed and premiering at Moody Gardens MG3D Cinema in Galveston, TX, in late 2014.

The upgrade will replace Moody Gardens’ existing 4K xenon system with a state-of-the-art pair of Christie 4K laser projection heads, a 6P modular laser light farm with fiber-optic delivery, Christie 4K 3D high-bit-rate server, new giant-screen 6P laser glasses, and a new premium white screen.

“Our 6P laser design is a huge step forward for the industry,” said Don Shaw, Christie’s senior director, entertainment solutions. “This particular system is designed to achieve up to 14-foot-lamberts onscreen in 3D, far exceeding any ‘ultra-bright’ industry standards.”

Hunger Games - Mockingjay Pt 1
Film Review: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

Darker, less action-packed first half of the final installment of the popular franchise moves from arenas to rubble aplenty as Jennifer Lawrence’s super-heroine is called upon to serve her beleaguered and much-destroyed nation as propaganda instrument and leader.
