New digital cinema exhibition technology Digital 3D cinema exhibition with rates of 48 or 60 frames per second - was presented within Kino Expo International Convention and Trade Fair in Saint-Petersburg, Russia on September 13, 2011. The event was organized by Nevafilm Company. Doremi Cinema playback technologies were used for the event, among other cinema solutions from RealD & Christie Digital.

High frame rate 3D digital cinema technology was presented for the first time in Russia and CIS. The event was of high interest among the public.

The high frame rate 3D material was provided by Lighstorm and the presentation was animated by Jon Landau, producer of Avatar & Titanic. Jon described the main principles of this new high frame rate technique. He explained why 24 fps was taken as standard it is the minimum rate needed for smooth film motion and cost-efficiency for studios. For Film-based workflow, the higher frame rate would lead to rise in cost of film and doubling of film budget, but we live in a digital era now, where cinemas utilize small hard disc or electronic download instead of bulky film reels. So there is no obstacle to move to 60 fps. Moreover, cameras are ready for shooting at such rates. All you need is to update the software of Series II digital projectors already installed in the majority of cinemas and use cinema servers able to support high frame rate.

Equipment set included Doremi Cinema Integrated Media Blocks (IMBs) with Showvault storage, Christie DLP Cinema projectors, RealD 3D system and Harkness Hall silver screen. Short movies, produced specially for this presentation, were screened with new frame rate: 24 fps turned to 48 fps, and then 48 fps turned to 60 fps.
