Next Generation Cinema Technology

The Academy Science and Technology Council initiated a Next Generation Cinema Technology (NGCT) program to advance cinema technology through collaborative research.
In late 2013, a working group was formed to investigate next generation cinema technologies and their impact on the motion picture art form. The working group’s task was to produce high quality “cinematic” test materials for industry-wide evaluation of next generation cinema techniques such as high frame rates and high dynamic range.  
In March 2014, an expert team of leading industry professionals came together to create the NGCT test material. The result was a short test scene shot multiple times under controlled conditions, providing 2K and 4K resolution and frame rates from 24 FPS to 120 FPS.
