Christie Mirage 4K Projector Screens Trumbull’s ‘UFOTOG’ in 3D 4K at 120 FPS

Filmmaker and Visual Effects legend Douglas Trumbull is partnering with Christie® on May 11 to premiere UFOTOG, a dramatic 10-minute experimental sci-fi story about a lone man attempting to photograph UFOs. Directed by Trumbull and created in 4K 3D at 120 frames per second (fps), the short film will be screened on a Christie® Mirage 4K35, the world’s first and only 4K DLP® resolution projector running at a true 120Hz, at the Seattle Cinerama Theater’s 2nd Annual Sci-Fi Film Festival.

“By using the latest technological advances in a smaller, less expensive space I can create and shoot live action content in a virtual environment at an actual 120Hz at full 4K resolution,” said Douglas Trumbull. “This ensures that the film will have the intended impact of an immersive, action 3D experience that can only be achieved on a Christie Mirage 4K at a true 4K 120Hz playback rate for a special venue or advanced immersive theatrical environment.”

With UFOTOG, Trumbull will demonstrate his ground-breaking MAGI process, which explores a new cinematic language that invites the audience to experience a powerful sense of immersion and impact that is not possible using conventional 24 fps or 3D standards.

“With Trumbull’s vision and process, he is taking the audience experience to an entirely new immersive story-telling level, beyond anything ever seen in the cinema world,” said Larry Paul, senior director, technology and visualization solutions, at Christie. “In fact, the use of the Christie Mirage 4K35 DLP® projector is the first screening of its kind showing in true 120Hz.”

The Mirage product line offers significant benefits to the global business and visualization markets, including theme parks, special events and custom theaters that rely on both 3D and single or multiple channel immersive displays, but it can also be used in filmmaking and post production for reviewing 4K shots from 24 to 120 fps at a full 4K resolution. The Christie Mirage 4K projectors provide outstanding flexibility in brightness from 10,000 to 35,000 lumens, a variety of input options including DisplayPort, HDMI and DVI and built-in Christie Twist™ for curved screens and blended array visualization applications.
