Thursday, February 20, 2014
Evanston, IL (February 20, 2014) - D3D Cinema is pleased to announce its digital conversion of the giant screen theater at the Pink Palace Museum in Memphis, Tennessee. Following the January upgrade of the Kentucky Science Center’s theater, this represents D3D’s second giant screen conversion in as many months.
Steve Pike, Director of the Pink Palace Family of Museums, said “We chose D3D over other integrators because of their experience in giant screen upgrades and their commitment to excellence. The giant screen has been an essential part of the Pink Palace’s mission for years, and we want to ensure that the transition to digital is a seamless process that provides the best quality end product for our customers. D3D has proven that they can deliver on all of these levels.”
“It’s an exciting time for D3D Cinema,” said Derek Threinen, Vice President of D3D. “Giant screens around the world have seen the overwhelming value and rationale in converting to digital systems, and we’re pleased that more and more of them are turning to us for their integrations. Digital technology now offers an outstanding viewer experience with greatly enhanced economics over 15/70 film, and it’s only getting better. With the rise of giant screen digital technologies, 2014 is proving to be not only an important year for D3D Cinema, but for the museum and attractions theater industry as a whole.”
D3D Cinema will outfit the theater at the Pink Palace Museum in February with a Barco 4K single projector solution powered by RealD 3D with a Severtson screen and QSC audio system.
