Kentucky Science Center to Take Giant Screen Theater Digital with D3D


Evanston, IL, USA (December 11, 2013) — D3D Cinema is proud to announce its latest giant screen digital 3D theater conversion at the Kentucky Science Center in Louisville.  The upgrade will commence after the holidays and the new Kentucky Science Center Theater will open February 8, 2014.  D3D will retrofit the existing 2D 15/70 theater into a state-of-the-art 4K 3D digital projection platform.  D3D designed the system with Barco, RealD, Schneider Optics, Qube, and QSC technologies.

“Our giant screen theater has played an integral role in Kentucky Science Center’s science literacy mission for 25 years – so it was critically important for us to upgrade to the best solution on the market” said Joanna Haas, KSC’s Executive Director.  “D3D’s system design, coupled with RealD’s 3D technology, aligned perfectly with our needs.  This upgrade will allow KSC to present a brighter, sharper, more immersive giant screen experience.”

The giant screen upgrade at Kentucky Science Center marks D3D’s 30th DCI-compliant museum theater installation since its inception in 2009.

Don Kempf, D3D’s Founder and President, expressed excitement about D3D’s growth and future.“We’re thrilled that such a high percentage of the giant screen theaters that are choosing to make the switch to digital are selecting D3D as their integrator.  I think this speaks to the positive word-of-mouth generated by our prior integrations in the giant screen market as well as a high confidence and trust level among our clients.  This is particularly exciting as the pace of the transition away from film-based systems among giant screen theaters continues to accelerate.  D3D is poised to make a handful of really exciting announcements – new venues, laser systems, dome solutions, our first OEM technology, and more – all of which should make 2014 another breakthrough year.”
