3dcinema Todays high quality 3D cinemas require to wear 3D glasses. Indeed there are a few glasses free 3D technologies on the market, but they are not suited for big audience screenings.

Tests with glasses free 3D cinemas have been conducted in early Soviet Union, ages ago. Unfortunately there was no breakthrough of this technology at any time. Different glasses based technologies have been established today.

The easiest way to project a 3D image is to use two projectors, one for the left and one for the right eye image. This so called double projection is the oldest method, still used today. But the majority of 3D cinemas only use one projector to screen 3D images. These systems are called 3D single projections.

The following pages provide information about the different systems currently available. Any existing system used in 3D cinemas is explained here.
