Bandwidth Pop-Up Theater
“Pop-up” theaters are popping up everywhere, providing a great option for temporary cinemas as well as indoor/outdoor movie venues in school gyms, public parks and even underserved locales in the water or up on a roof! These theaters in-a-box bring cinema to the people wherever they are, offering a portable, first-class viewing experience according to the folks at Bandwidth Digital Releasing, Inc., who used a Barco 4K digital cinema projector to screen movies in Canada for the Adam Beach Film Institute, a national charitable organization created to provide greater opportunity for Aboriginal people in front of and behind the camera.

4K in control rooms: how many pixels can you handle?

4K logo

4K is a resolution standard that literally almost has 4000 pixel lines or 8.8 million pixels (to be correct, 4096 x 2160). This is four times the resolution you have at the moment on your HD television set. By adding pixels, you are adding different perceived image quality features like sharpness, color depth, etc., but most importantly you create more information space.

Présence is all about capturing the space you are in: physically, verbally, and mentally.
