I have made the decision to build an amazing home theater system so I never have to go to a movie theater again
Good luck mainitaining that decision. Dont get me wrong. Everything is fine. you may have th ebest of the best audio visual stuff in the world But.... there is a big but which no one can escape. and that but is the but of waiting time. All new movies which run in theatres take at the minimum a month to get on blu ray disc and thats is something extremely few people have the guts to say yes i can wait that long.I have made the decision to build an amazing home theater system so I never have to go to a movie theater again
4 K projectors are now installed in many theatres , the only benefit is that 4K projectors illumination power is 10000 lumens more than 2 K projectors . Nothing else . Movies are still coming in 2K format and showing through 4 K projectors , fooling the public .hi HTFAN,
You are right in saying so its very difficult to find out the difference between 2k and 4k unless you are a through proffessional and for a comman man or a nob it would be better if the theatre owners certify that there screen/projector are indeed 4k capable or there should be some department who authorises them.
For dolbyatmos or auro or dts x equipped theatres these sound formats are indeed checked personally by the concern audio sources and for which they issue the certification that this theatre is equipped with there formats..
i dont know about the 4k video part as to who is authorised or takes care of the above procedure????
They usually mention it as a non IMAX movie In a strange terminology which is not easy to comprehend.When I watched the Independence day-2 at the Phoenix Mall (Chennai) in I-MAX, the picture aspect ratio was not 16/9(which is the common aspect ratio for IMAX) rather it was like 2.3/1. So I doubt that they charged us more than Rs.400+ and showed us a regular print. however the sound quality was good.
