High Frame Rate (HFR) filmmaking, the technology pioneered in Peter Jacksons The Hobbit, could be the most significant change to the moviegoing experience since the addition of sound in the 1920s. Sheridan Colleges Screen Industries Research and Training (SIRT) Centre recently embarked on a major HFR 3D research project to help the Ontario and international digital media community understand the challenges and opportunities associated with HFR cinema. Project partners include Christie and a broad group of industry associations and companies. Christie, a global visual technologies company, offers diverse solutions for business, entertainment, and industry. With expertise in film projection since 1929 and professional projection systems since 1979, Christie established a reputation as the worlds single source manufacturer of a variety of display technologies and solutions for cinema, large audience environments, control rooms, business presentations, training facilities, 3D and virtual reality, simulation, education, media and government. SIRTs workshop at Pinewood Toronto Studios has been outfitted with 22-foot screens and a Christie Solaria 4K
projector capable of 2D, 3D, and HFR 3D display. As the first stage, SIRT coordinated a shoot designed to capture different types of shots at various frame rates and shutter degree angles. The shoot involved respected stereographers, consultants and technicians and will provide the basis for further investigation. Our major HFR research goals are to help visionary filmmakers perfect HFR image capture and processing, and to ensure exhibitors have the best infrastructure possible to showcase the immersive HFR experience, said Roy Anthony, Senior Solutions Architect at Christie Digital Systems. Sheridans SIRT Centre is already helping us accomplish this goal in Ontario, supporting our work with world-class testing and educating our colleagues on the many opportunities of HFR. Project results are already being disseminated to industry professionals and academics, giving them a better understanding of the resources and decision-making involved for HFR. Research outcomes and material from SIRTs shoot were presented at SIGGRAPH 2012, and at 3DFLICs HFR workshop at SIRT in the Fall of 2012.
