Sheraton Syracuse University Hotel & Conference Center

Invited lecture:

The IMAX Laser Projection System: From 0 to Insane in Under 2 Years

Barry Silverstein IMAX Business Unit, IMAX Rochester

 

 

Out of the ashes of Kodak’s Entertainment Imaging business was born the world’s first cinema-quality laser projection prototype. Learn about the creation of the newly formed IMAX business unit, IMAX Rochester. Follow the technical journey (adventure) of taking a prototype 10,000 lumen, 2k resolution laser projector and turbo charging it to deliver six times the brightness in order to light screens that are more than 100 feet wide at 4k resolution. The projection system born out of this effort is currently delivering stunning images at IMAX’s most iconic locations around the globe…. a mere two years later. The revolutionary optical-mechanical system is unlike anything ever built for a projector and was designed in Rochester. It is currently in production in Canada by a simultaneously created custom assembly line. IMAX, in conjunction with local suppliers, managed to deliver this system on time while working across three countries and two continents. The performance of this system has exceeded expectations and is receiving accolades from the industries experts.
