Sony spins new digital Spidey

Invitation-only screening will be held Jan. 13

Sony has skedded a screening of “Spider-Man 2” using its new 4K digital projection system — the first-ever public showing of a feature film in 4K digital.

The invitation-only screening of Columbia’s summer blockbuster will be held Jan. 13 at the Entertainment Technology Center’s Digital Cinema Lab at the Hollywood Pacific Theater. There will be a panel discussion starting at 7 p.m. with the screening to follow at 8.

Sony’s Silicon X-tal Reflective Display (SXRD) image panel, which will be making its bow at the screening, allows the new projector to show images at almost four times the resolution of current HDTV displays.

Sony is hoping exhibitors will embrace the SXRD projector as the industry moves toward digital projection.

The presentation before the screening will focus on the sound design, editing and visual effects of “Spider-Man 2,” featuring the film’s editor, Bob Murawski, sound designer and sound effects editor Paul Ottosson, supervising sound mixers Greg Russell and Kevin O’Connell and visual effects supervisors John Dykstra and Scott Stokdyk.
