A new, immersive form of theater-going experience is taking Star Trek Beyond to warp speed.
It’s not quite the holodeck, but it’s close.
While cinemas have developed new options like IMAX and 3D to compete with the home-viewing experience, Belgian company Barco has developed new technology to enhance the movie-going experience even further.
Barco Escape has gone even bigger: banking on multiple, interconnected big-screens, creating an even more immersive experience with three cinema projectors and two additional cinemascope screens, allowing filmmakers to create a much larger canvas. Select sequences of Star Trek Beyond footage have been created to dramatically expand across three screens.
It’s like digital surround sound for your eyes.
“Justin Lin’s Star Trek Beyond is an epic adventure — truly larger than life,” said producer and Bad Robot president J.J. Abrams in a press release. “It is especially fitting, then, that we are partnering with Barco Escape to provide an ultra wide-screen immersive experience using their unique Barco Escape format. This premium format dramatically expands the width of the viewing plane, giving filmmakers an innovative new tool with which to tell stories and audiences an enhanced new way to experience cinema.”
Barco Escape will illuminate the Star Trek universe by creating key “moments” across all three screens that will exhilarate fans. Bad Robot has re-mastered more than 20 minutes of “Star Trek Beyond” into the new format.
With partners in the United States, Europe, Mexico and China, there are about about 100 Barco Escape theaters. Barco has been in operation since 2014, premiering its tech with the “The Maze Runner.”
Discover a new kind of Star Trek adventure available exclusively in Barco Escape, with select sequences of Star Trek Beyond footage created to dramatically expand the Universe across three screens.
