MANCHESTER, UK – November 6, 2009 - Legendary Film company Shaw Brothers, founders of Hong Kong's movie industry and shareholders of the Shaw Studios Project, a state-of-the-art audio post production facility, has chosen Digital Projection International for all their projector needs.


After extensive global research on the highest-performing projectors available today, Shaw chose the Award -Winning TITAN series projectors. The TITAN series has a full spectrum of light output units, capable of producing from 1600 lumens to 11,000 lumens, while also offering the most lumens produced from the lowest wattage consumed of any projector range today. From the compact TITAN 1080p-250 to the CEDIA Expo award-winning TITAN 1080p-Dual 3D, the TITAN line is fully HD and offers numerous Active 3D capable displays.


Eric Stark, Chief Technical Officer, Shaw Studios said, "We spent a great deal of time researching all projectors on the market and finally chose Digital Projection's TITAN displays based on the compact form factor and low noise which lends itself perfectly to the studio environment where space is a premium and noise levels are critical.” Stark continued, “The advanced ColorMaxâ„¢ color processing gives the user full control over primary and secondary colors, plus white point control. This advanced color control allows us to color match every projection system in house in order to attain a complete color science solution at Shaw Studios. Another deciding factor for us is the ability to use the projector in 2D or 3D modes which enable us to take on a wider range of projects, as more 3D movies are produced.”


The studios boast one of the largest, fully sound and vibration-insulated soundstages in Asia. They offer a full-service color lab and digital imaging facility with over 20 sound and editing suites. Additional amenities in the production facility include a 400-seat dubbing and screening theatre, executive and production office space, plus workstations for visual effects and animation design. In all, the Shaw Studios space offers over a million square feet of digitally-wired and secure facilities dedicated solely to film production and post-production.
