Demonstration by Ken Hunold of Dolby, the evening’s host, of the new Dolby Atmos

Cinema Sound System, employing overhead speakers as well as surround speakers,

Dolby Atmos can create realistic and natural sound experiences that envelop and involve

the audience in the motion picture story.


In the decade since the debut of the Dalsa Origin, the first commercially available

Super35 4K camera, manufacturers have sought to both lower the size and cost of 4K

cameras and to devise practical recording methods for the torrent of data that 4K cameras

generate. With consumer 4K “Ultra High-Definition” TVs on the horizon, pressure to

originate programming in 4K is starting to build. Two manufacturers, Sony and Canon,

have recently introduced less costly and highly innovative lines of Super35 4K cameras

and recording strategies. A new entrant in the camera field, FOR-A, has just introduced a

high-speed Super35 4K camera with capture rates up to 900 fps.

4K is poised to replace or supplement HD as the newest production format.

Representatives from Sony, Canon, and FOR-A will bring their answers and demo reels

for projection on Dolby’s Barco 4K projector.


This is one SMPTE-NY Section meeting you won’t want to miss!
