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.”

The Wedding Ringer
Film Review: The Wedding Ringer

Intermittently amusing bro-comedy trifle that confirms Kevin Hart's talent, though not his taste in material. More »

Paddington
Film Review: Paddington

This feel-good, looks-great first-time big-screen adaptation of the beloved British children's stories about a stowaway Peruvian bear finding his, er, bearings in London is much more than just, oops, bearable. The handsome production greatly benefits from a top-notch cast of some of the U.K.’s finest actors and its beautiful blend of CGI-enriched live action and animated ursine star. More »
