ROCHESTER, NY — The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the sale by Kodak of a new laser digital projection system to theaters without requiring individual theater sites to obtain special permits to use it as is typically the case when laser-powered devices are used in places of entertainment. Kodak expects the new system to be available for purchase by theater operators within two years, claiming that the new system promises sharper, clearer images for both 2D and 3D films.

Moore notes that KODAK Laser Projection Technology is a key ingredient to potential improvements in digital cinema picture quality for both filmmakers and movie-goers. “This laser technology is a significant breakthrough that promises to have a positive ripple effect throughout the cinema world,” adds Moore. “We at Kodak have always endeavored to provide filmmakers with the best possible tools with which to tell their stories. That philosophy has served us well for more than a century, and we will continue nurturing that partnership long into the future.”

This was always the worry with digital projection. You buy an expensive system, and a year or two later, something better comes out…
