Anyone else who cares about movie theatres…? Apparently Kenya’s two Imax theatres still use 2k resolution digital xenon projectors instead of dual 4k laser, you can confirm that from Imax Wikipedia page (despite some blogs claiming that its laser). This results in a much dull image with not so good contrast ratio.
There is no Dolby cinema in kenya yet, despite that some use the atmos sound technology (A Dolby cinema has dolby vision and atmos). In my experience, any theatre in Kenya that is not Imax has poor 3d rendering (some images are left with shadows around them). I wish there was a true Dolby cinema in Kenya or an Imax with dual 4k laser projectors. The only reason to visit a kenyan theatre is sound, its really immersive, but only those with atmos and Imax. Atmos is really balanced while Imax tend to have “bassier” sound.
Advantages of Dolby cinema and imax with laser are high contrast ratio and brightness. I hope the much hyped “4d” theatre slated to open at Tworivers mall will have Dolby cinema or imax with laser .
