Shenzhen Timewaying Technology, a leading 3D supplier to the Chinese market, announced on Monday (July 19) that its LA2K-10 LED cinema system has passed the DCI compliance test plan.
Timewaying started developing an LED cinema system in 2018. The LA2K-10 is their first LED product.
“Timewaying believes that LED technology will revolutionize the cinema experience by providing a truly black screen,” said Andrew Chan, general manager of Timewaying, in a statement. “Because the screen absorbs, not just reflects, light from the secondary reflection, the contrast ratio within the field of view can be increased by more than 20 times the ratio achieved using 100-year-old white screens. While the color space of an RGB projector can potentially be larger than an LED screen, Timewaying believes that improving the intra-frame contrast ratio will practically deliver the true pure colors in the DCI-P3 specification. “
Chan continued, “Timewaying believes that providing a good movie theater experience is still the key to good storytelling and healthy social interaction. With the launch of this new technology, Timewaying looks forward to working closely with studio and exhibitor partners to bring great movie experiences to audiences around the world. “
“Our plan is based on the idea of deploying the LA2K-10 to operate on a very reasonable energy budget,” added Kenny Chow, chief technology officer. “With this new product, we are able to show films at three times the normal brightness (45 fL versus the average of 15 fL for conventional screens), which is an amazing experience for the consumer with only about the same power consumption. . ”
Timewaying was founded in 2011 and has been a leader in the migration of 3D technology from active 3D glasses to passive glasses. It has installed over 30,000 3D systems in 11,000 cinema locations across China. The company recently started production of its NAMOS Nano Screen, which has an extinction ratio of over 1,000 to 1 in 3D and completely eliminates ghosting when viewing 3D films.
