Movie theaters are trying the new Dolby 3D system that is competing with the now well established Real D, but although both systems offer the same gimmick of allowing viewers to see movies in three dimensions, there are very substantial differences between both methods.

To start with, Dolby 3D uses glasses that are not disposable and that are not kept by the customer after watching the film. The new Dolby 3D uses returnable glasses that include a new type of lenses with dichroic filters. These  filters combined with the projection equipment allow the viewers to experience a crisp, color-saturated moving image in 3D. Recent releases using this system are “Brave” and “Prometheus“.
