Dolby 3D Digital Cinema has been selected to present Giant Screen Films’ Egypt 3D: Secrets of the Mummies, a companion 3D movie experience to the National Geographic touring exhibition Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs.
"The King Tut exhibit combines entertainment and educational dynamics, delivering an exciting experience to the millions of visitors expected to attend the tour,” said John Carey, vice president of Worldwide Sales, Products, and Services, Dolby Laboratories. “It’s an honour to have been selected by Giant Screen Films to present the movie Egypt 3D developed to accompany the exhibit.”
Dolby will maximise the Dolby 3D experience with Dolby Digital Cinema servers and Dolby DMA8Plus Digital Media Adapters, bringing a realistic 3D visual and 5.1 surround sound experience to Egypt 3D. Barco was selected to provide its DP-2000, Dolby 3D equipped projectors featuring Texas Instruments Digital Light Processing (DLP) technology.
“Giant Screen Films was particularly focused on presentation quality as we looked to convert Egypt 3D into a digital 3D experience for Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs, a premiere exhibition,” said Andy Wood, vice president of Business Development, Giant Screen Films. “We expect that many viewers will experience digital 3D for the first time, so we needed the clarity and depth to really pack a punch. Dolby 3D and Dolby 5.1 really came out on top. I can’t think of a better way to take audiences to Egypt!”
