Movies today are about high quality visual and sensorial experiences. Technology has changed
the entire landscape of movie making. Here are the top technologies that had the greatest impact
on the movie industry.
IMAX with lasers
You can now see better and brighter IMAX movies. Lasers can produce deeper black
colours.You get better image and colour quality throughout the movie. The laser projection
system removes the eye-straining feature of 3D movies. Lasers also burn less than bulbs so that
the movie theatres will be saving a lot of money.
Watching movies on phone or tablet
There is rumor that the new iPad has higher resolution screen than an HD TV. You can now
watch a high quality movie on your iPad when you travel. Films are now distributed on YouTube
and Hulu, so more people are watching movies on their phone and tablet. Some directors even
shoot movies on their phone. In 2011, Hooman Khalili shot his feature-length film Olive entirely
with a Nokia smartphone.
Projecting movies from your Phone
You can now see movies on any surface including your ceilings, and walls from your phone. All
you need to use is a pocket-sized pico projector.
3D without glasses
Many people find it very annoying to put on the glasses when watching a 3D movie. The new
‘lenticular lens technology’ will allow you to see 3D movies without glasses. Another
technology is the ‘parallax barrier’ which is a very fine grating that is placed in front of the LCD
Realistic audio experiences
With Dolby’s new Atmos sound system, you will be able to hear the sound of a killer’s footsteps
so clearly as if the killer is coming towards you. By adding speaker feeds all around sound can
be produced from more directions.
These technologies have taken movies to a new level. Movies are now more amazing to watch
and easier to access as well. You can now get theater-like experience at your home.
