Telus World of Science shows off new laser IMAX projector
New laser projector has four times the resolution of the old system
A new state-of-the-art IMAX projector has been installed at the Telus World of Science in Edmonton.
The laser system is the only one in western Canada, and the Telus World of Science is one of only four museums in the world to have this technology.
Theatre manager Darren Durocher gave CBC video producer Sam Martin a behind-the-scenes look at the new projector.
"This system is amazing," Durocher said. "It's about four times the resolution of the old projector that we had in here and it's about eight to 10 times the resolution of your TV at home."
The laser projector makes its debut Friday with the opening of Humpback Whales in 3D.
