D3D Cinema upgrades Dallas’ Perot Museum of Nature and Science theater with state-of-the-art cinema technology
Evanston, IL (August 9, 2022) – D3D Cinema is proud to announce the completion of a project to upgrade of the Perot Museum of Nature and Science’s Hoglund Foundation Theater.
D3D replaced the existing xenon-illuminated projection system with a fourth-generation Barco® SP4K laser projector, equipped with a Lightspeed DepthQ 3D system. The state-of-the-art laser projector is now illuminating the Hoglund Foundation Theater’s large screen with dazzling images featuring a brilliantly-expanded color gamut far beyond the capabilities of the former projection system.
The new projection system is complemented by a full alternative content package which allows the Perot Museum to present a far wider selection of mission-related and specialty content in the theater than ever before, as well as to turn the theater into a powerful and capable event space for everything from lectures to private rentals.
“Here at the Perot Museum, we’ve used films for years to take our visitors further into the natural world, but the new top-of-the-line digital laser technology and 3D capabilities now deployed in our theater have deepened the visual experience and impact for our visitors, delivering on our goal to foster a lifelong fascination and interest in science, nature and human culture. We’re thrilled with the stunning viewer experience of this highly advanced digital system,” said David Humphries, the Perot Museum’s Chief Operating Officer.
“We’re honored to have been selected to work closely with the Perot Museum on this important reimagining of their theater,” said Derek Threinen, Senior Vice President of Business Development for D3D. “In redefining the Perot’s museum cinema experience, a new generation of museum visitors will be inspired through unparalleled presentations of compelling stories from around the world, and beyond.”
