Celebrate December 1st Movie Day! A Special Day for Movie Enthusiasts

Hello, this is Santek 3D Eyewear. December 1st is just around the corner. This day is a special one that celebrates Movie Day, honoring the history and cultural significance of the film industry. It's an occasion where movie enthusiasts gather to enjoy films. In Kobe, where Santek Technology is located, December 1st was designated as "Movie Day" to commemorate the first public screening of a film in Japan. Considering that December 1st is Movie Day, many cinemas across the country may offer discounted movie tickets on the 1st of every month, providing an opportunity for moviegoers to enjoy films at a special rate.

Today, let's talk a bit about the history of 3D movies. Before we delve into that, if you're interested in understanding why images seem to pop out when using 3D glasses on flat screens and the like, this article explains the mechanism, so be sure to check it out.

History of 3D Movies

The history of 3D movies and the 3D glasses used for them is fascinating. Let's briefly introduce this history.

Early Experiments (19th Century)

The concept of 3D glasses dates back to the 19th century. In early experiments, different-colored filters were used to present different images to the left and right eyes. This technique, known as "Anaglyph," often used red and blue lenses.

Application to Films (Early 20th Century)

3D movies gained popularity, particularly in the 1950s. During this period, 3D glasses used a color-separation method (red and blue lenses). These movies overlaid two images taken from different angles to create a depth perception.

Introduction of Polarization

More advanced 3D glasses use polarizing filters, reducing color distortion and achieving more natural-colored 3D images. Polarized glasses are widely used for viewing 3D movies in cinemas.

Active Shutter System

In this technology, glasses electronically alternate opening and closing the left and right lenses rapidly, presenting images alternately to create a 3D effect. This allows for a higher-quality and more realistic 3D experience.

Advancements in Modern Technology

 In contemporary times, 3D technology has further evolved, introducing new forms of immersive experiences such as VR (Virtual Reality) headsets. With these devices, users can experience a 360-degree environment in 3D. As seen, 3D glasses have evolved from simple color separation to advanced electronic technologies, spanning a long history.
