The four-day Noir Film Festival ran from the 23rd-26th August 2018 where visitors attending the Křivoklát Castle in the Czech Republic could enjoy more than forty screenings of classic Hollywood movies from the 1940s, 50s and 60s. The Nordic Noir programme offered a gloomy atmosphere where the visitors could enjoy older Czechoslovak films with noir aspects.
The Optoma ZU850 was selected as the best solution for the Noir Festival with its innovative MultiColor Laser (MCL) technology. The model delivers ultimate colour performance whilst the DuraCore laser light source maintains exceptional brightness consistency which is exactly what was required.
Featuring 20,000 hours maintenance-free laser light source at full brightness, advanced laser diode cooling techniques and an innovative dust resistant design, this model fit the specifications required for the event.
The Noir Film Festival required a reliable projector which picked up on the smallest of details. The ZU850's WUXGA (1920 x 1200) resolution offers 15% more pixels than 1080p. This enables unscaled Full HD video and extra detail for crystal clear projected images.
To accompany the ZU850, The Noir Film Festival also used a sound mixer from Soundcraft, a Dolby processor and an RCA Amplifier with passive speakers to ensure the entire experience from visionary to sound was perfectly executed.
