The new “Avatar” broke several theaters
Equipment in several Japanese theaters crashed during a screening of Avatar: The Way of Water. It turned out to be too demanding on the technical capabilities of the projectors.
Cinemas show the new Avatar in at least three formats: 2D 24 fps, 2D 48 fps and 3D 48 fps. The last format (also known as HFR or High Frame Rate) is the coolest – with a voluminous and smooth image, which results in a very dynamic and spectacular picture. It turned out that not all projectors can cope with such a high frame rate, they overheat and fail.
Cinemas had to rush to install backup projectors and order film with a simpler copy of the film, designed to play 24 frames per second. Movie theaters owned by United Cinemas Co., Toho Col and Tokyu Corp faced problems.
Avatar: The Last Airbender is not the first film to be released in the HFR format, previously the fantastic action film Gemini with Will Smith and the Hobbit trilogy were shown at an increased frame rate . To save resources, 48 frames per second is used only in dynamic scenes, and in dialogues and calm moments from a visual point of view, the classic version of 24 frames per second is used, which is considered the main cinematic standard.
