The SMPTE Centennial Gala will be held on October 25-27, 2016 at the Hollywood and Highland Center (Hollywood, CA,USA). At the occasion, SMPTE will officially bestow Honorary Membership upon James Cameron in recognition of his work advancing visual effects, motion capture, and stereoscopic 3D photography, as well as his experimentation in higher frame rates (HFR).

SMPTE also will present Douglas Trumbull, who was VFX responsible in "2001: A Space Odyssey" and "Blade Runner," with the Society's most prestigious award, the Progress Medal. The award recognizes Trumbull's contributions to VFX, stereoscopic 3D, and HFR cinema, including his current work to enable stereoscopic 3D with his 120-frames-per-second Magi system.

RealD Ultimate Screen: A Technological upgrade to 3D Cinema Experience

RealD is introcucing the new "Ultimate Screen" for passive polarized technology 3D movie theatres. The RealD Ultimate Screen is a revolutionary, highly sophisticated, scientifically engineered matte-white screen that delivers incredible images in both 2 and 3D formats. RealD called it Ultimate Screen because it delivers the ultimate cinema experience for moviegoers.

The Ultimate screen has a 2.1 or 2.8 gain (stereoscopic contrast 250:1 or 500:1) and brings 85% more brightness than a 'standard' silver screen. The screen substrate allows for true Micro-Perforations (150 microns) allowing a much smaller perforation without compromising audio quality. It is rigid enough to efficiently vibrate and remove all speckles from laser projection with less actuators. Regardless of what projector you use (xenon or laser), the screen is designed to deliver the world’s highest quality image. And the surface has an anti-stick coating that allows for simple, easy cleaning, including fingerprints, Coke, and Gummy bear sticky traces.
