Despite a downturn in 3D’s effect on ticket sales, California-based 3D equipment maker RealD reported a boost in earnings during the fourth quarter.

RealD also said 10 films in circulation on its screens generated in excess of $1 million in admission based license revenue compared to two films in the prior year quarter.
