Now, I’ll preface this report with a single warning: unless you’re insanely wealthy, you probably won’t be seeing one of these projectors in your home. However, theatre owners generally are insanely wealthy, so expect to begin seeing the RED 4D 3D laser projector in theatres in the near future. The company has long been known for putting out some of the world’s best digital video cameras, and it seems that they are now turning their attention from capture to delivery. Getting incredible footage is nothing if there’s no way to view it with similar technology, right?
We don’t have many details regarding the projector, as CEO Jim Jannard tends to be a bit secretive, but that didn’t stop him from teasing the market a bit. What we do know at this point is that the projector relies on passive 3D visuals in lieu of the active 3D option. Rumors are flying regarding the level of quality from the new RED unit, but we’ve heard that Element Technica co-founder Stephen Pizzo was left “speechless”.
Hmm, that’s intriguing isn’t it? There should be plenty of hype coming in the next few weeks, so keep your eyes and ears peeled. We’ll do our best to stay on top of this story and bring you more details as they come. For now, just know that there’s a new 3D projector that’s likely going to alter the way we see 3D cinema…I for one, can’t wait!
