"Our collaboration with Evans and Sutherland and their extensive
network of theaters and their new high quality AEOS display system opens
up exciting new venues for our productions and offers new ways for
audiences to experience them. We’re very excited about our partnership,"
said Pietro L Serapiglia, VP of The Stephen Low Company.
The first film to become available under this agreement is Rocky
Mountain Express, hailed as an instant classic for the giant screen and a
winner of numerous GSCA awards. As an industry first, Rocky Mountain
Express has been scanned from the original 1570 film in 8K x 6K
resolution, and will be mastered for the AEOS display system in digital
8K, offering an unprecedented level of detail.
The next film to be released under this partnership is Stephen's
latest film, The Trolley that Saves the World, that will have its first
industry screening at the GSCA Conference next week in Chicago, IL.
The trailer for Rocky Mountain Express will be shown on an AEOS
display system at a special GSCA event in St. Louis, MO, on October 12,
and then again at the ASTC Conference at The Tech Museum of Innovation
in San Jose, CA, on October 24.
