Digital Cinema

The world premiere of Spectre, the 24th James Bond adventure, was projected in Sony 4K at London’s Royal Albert Hall on Oct. 26.

The premiere was attended by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, and by the film’s leading actors Daniel Craig, Christoph Waltz, Léa Seydoux, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, David Bautista, Monica Bellucci, Andrew Scott and Ralph Fiennes. The cast was joined on the red carpet by director Sam Mendes and producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli.

The performance was screened using a dual projection system consisting of two SRX-R320 projectors provided by Sony Digital Cinema 4K. Spectre is the second Bond film to be mastered and delivered to cinemas as a 4K Digital Cinema Package. 4K has four times the resolution of consumers’ full HD televisions or conventional 2K projection.  

“If there’s one man who’s always certain to look his best, it’s James Bond,” said David McIntosh, VP, Sony Digital Cinema 4K Solutions for Europe and the Americas. “We were delighted to support Sony Pictures on this very special occasion. Projected in Sony 4K, the world premiere of Spectre gave the audience a truly sensational spectacle.”
