As part of Creative COW's ongoing look at high frame rate (HFR) cinema production and exhibition, we spoke with Michael Karagosian, co-chair of SMPTE's HFR Study Group, about his thoughts on the ways that higher frame rates factor into digital cinema, in both 2D and 3D, from camera capture to the silver screen.

Michael has had a front row seat for the unfolding of a wide range of cinema and digital cinema technologies for the past 30 years. He developed 70mm split surround for the release of Apocalypse Now, the pre-cursor to 5.1 sound, and one of the companies he founded was the first to produce a full line of THX approved cinema sound products, utilizing Michael's CinemaMatrix™ digital surround decoder, also used by Skywalker Sound and Pixar.

At SMPTE, Michael initiated and chaired the development of digital cinema packaging (DCP), following his work on behalf of longtime clients, the National Association of Theater Owners, as part of the Digital Cinema Initiative (DCI). He was awarded the ShoWest Award of Appreciation for Contribution to the Advancement of Digital Cinema in 2006.

Looking for real-world insights into the state of current and future HFR cinema, in both 2D and 3D? Don't miss Michael's provocative conversation with Creative COW.
