hobbits [In reply to] Can't Post

IMAX 3D is twin reels of 15/70 running in sync, with either passive polarized lenses or no polarization and the use of synced shutters. They do not run at 48hz to do 24 stereo. And there are quite a few IMAX HD 48fps-capable 15/70 projectors in North America. Maxivision is also not a "dead company". They just have never gotten the financing do anything in quantity. Jackson has the clout to utilize it. As for the 4k, it was my understanding that the Imax 2D and 3D film prints were taken from 4k masters. The DI for The Hobbit is 4k. You're absolutely right, though, there are no 4K HFR 3D versions in any venue.
