IBC has long been the plane to talk about, and experience, the latest in big screen technology and practice. This year the IBC Big Screen Experience will be even bigger and built around a programme of free to attend editorially led sessions under the theme of ‘Disruptive Cinema’.
The programme takes place in the the RAI Auditorium, a 1,700 seat theatre which is converted into a state of the art cinema by the IBC technical team. This year that includes the Christie 6P 4K laser projector and Dolby Atmos immersive audio. There will be no finer environment in which to experience the latest in 2D and 3D big screen content.
The IBC Big Screen Experience Programme will explore the latest developments and technologies in the world of cinema and sessions start at 14:00 today, with a debate on how big screens and second screens can co-exist peacefully and profitably.
Other sessions over the coming days include a look at the latest technologies for 3D, alternative content and on the big screen, and the prospects for virtualised movie production. There are showcases for Arri and Red cameras, and the annual European Digital Cinema Forum workshop and on Monday, the programme will take an intensive look at the challenges and rewards of laser projection.
On Saturday and Monday evenings the IBC Big Screen also hosts complimentary movie screenings – Life of Pi and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes respectively – and on Sunday 14 September at 18:30 the RAI Auditorium is home to the IBC Awards Ceremony, which is guaranteed to be full of exciting clips and surprises that will make the most of the IBC Big Screen technology.
All of these events are free for all visitors to attend, and represent the very best in cinema technology. This is a rare opportunity to get caught up in the new magic of the silver screen.
