On October 20th 2012, the new Peoria Riverfront Museum (PRM), Illinois, USA, will open to the public with the first GSX giant flat screen theater. The PRM theater will become the highest resolution digital Giant Screen Cinema in the world capable of 2D and 3D presentations and will be the only theater to offer multiple, automated aspect ratio modes including 4:3 at 4K by 3K resolution.

Since being approved in 2001, the PRM project in Peoria, Illinois, has worked to clearly defined objectives to become a cultural center for art, history, science and achievement through the application of pioneering design, technology and innovation.

Following contract award in 2010, Global Immersion has collaborated with PRM and its team of technology and consultancy partners to develop the state-of-the-art theater which will launch next month. The new theater system is now available as part of Global Immersion’s GSX series of digital Giant Screen Cinema systems, each designed for the emerging Digital Immersive Giant Screen Specification (DIGSS), promising unrivaled performance and unrestricted content capability.

PRODUCT OF AN AMBITIOUS AND VISIONARY APPROACH.
The PRM theater, powered by GSX, will feature a 70 x 52 feet / 21.3 x 15.8 meter screen, 200 seats, and a range of features unique to GSX that will enable the museum to play an unrestricted range of content including traditional Giant Screen films, streamed, alternative, live and online media in multiple aspect ratios and file formats (including Digital Cinema Initiative [DCI]-encrypted films). The system is capable of playing content at up to 60 frames per second and in 12-bit color depth.

Speaking about the project, and the unique capabilities of the new system, Martin Howe, CEO at Global Immersion commented; ‘We are incredibly proud to be delivering the first GSX to such a visionary team of museum and technology professionals. Since the beginning, we have worked diligently to evaluate the best possible technology choices and partners, and to set ambitious goals for our digital Giant Screen Cinema system in order to provide a high performance platform that rivals and even outperforms the quality of film and yet offers the broadest possible range of content for the Giant Screen Cinema world.”

Jim Richerson, President and CEO of Peoria Riverfront Museum says, from the beginning the Museum has been focused on creativity and innovation. “Clearly Global Immersion's GSX system delivers that and more. With this system Global Immersion delivers several industry firsts and this will most certainly ‘Play in Peoria’! Key to serving our mission and bottom-line is a system like GSX that is flexible in programming and technologically upgradeable.”

EXCEPTIONAL BRIGHTNESS AND VERSATILITY WITH EXCLUSIVE FEATURES.
Global Immersion formally announced the GSX™ digital Giant Screen cinema product line in March this year. The GSX range of theater systems comprises GSX for flat or curved Giant Screen theaters, GSX Dome™ for in-dome Giant Screen insert display systems, and GSX Fulldome™ for digital Giant Screen fulldome theaters. Each of the GSX systems is available in both 2D and 3D configurations and is designed to exceed the performance of traditional Giant Screen film projection.

The GSX theater system at the Peoria Riverfront Museum will deliver up to 6 foot-lamberts (ftL.) of brightness in Giant Screen 3D mode in 4:3 aspect ratio; a 3D image at least twice as bright when compared to alternative Giant Screen Cinema systems.

Fully DCI-compliant and designed for DIGSS, GSX uses a dual projector design to achieve True 4:3™; a feature which projects 4,000 by 3,000 pixels in 4:3 aspect ratio to deliver 12 million unique pixels on screen. The product is the only digital Giant Screen Cinema system in the market today to project 4K by 3K resolution, and does not use ‘over-projection’ or ‘masking’ techniques to achieve 4:3.

The system is the only digital Giant Screen Cinema solution available offering automated multiple aspect ratios at the push of a button, including True 4:3™; enabling theaters to rapidly switch between 16:9, 1.85:1, 1,89:1, 2.39:1, and True 4:3™ modes on demand without loss of resolution or brightness.

“We have created an industry-leading solution which addresses the demand for ultra-bright giant screen 3D, and will expand the content library available to Giant Screen theaters,” concludes Howe. “Not only does GSX set new standards for digital Giant Screen Cinema, but it goes beyond the expected and allows theaters to choose, see and experience more than ever before.”
