Shaw Brothers Choose Digital Projection For $200 Million Shaw Studios Project

Film company Shaw Brothers - which founded Hong Kong's movie industry and shareholder of the Shaw Studios Project, a state-of-the-art audio post production facility - has chosen Digital Projection International to supply all of their digital projectors.
After extensive global research to determine only the very best equipment, Shaw chose the award-winning Titan series.
The Titan series has a full spectrum of light output units, which fully accommodate the individual needs of each studio, from Titan 1080p-250 to 1080p-Dual 3D all with full HD and Active 3D capabilities.
The studios boast one of the largest, fully sound and vibration-insulated soundstages in Asia. They offer a full-service colour lab and digital imaging facility with over 20 sound and editing suites. In addition to this, a 400-seat dubbing and screening theatre, executive and production office space, visual effects and animation capabilities. In all, over a million square feet of digitally-wired and secure facilities dedicated solely to film production and post-production.
Eric Stark, Chief Technical Officer, Shaw Studios, said: "We spent a great deal of time researching all projectors on the market and finally chose Digital Projections Titan displays based on the compact form factor and low noise, which lends itself perfectly to the studio environment where space is a premium and noise levels are critical.
The advanced Colormax processing gives the user full control over primary, secondary colours and also white point to allow us to colour match every projection system in house to provide a complete colour science solution at Shaw Studios. Another deciding factor for us is the ability to use the projector in 2D or 3D modes which enable us to take on a wider range of projects, as more 3D movies are produced.
Further information about the Titan Series is available at: www.digitalprojection.com.
