Cinematography Technology, Then and Now - Image 1
Noteworthy theater technology has been developed over the last decade, yet has been revolutionized during the last century as a collective. The audience can now enjoy lifelike action through an advanced cinematic experience just because of the latest technology which enables better sound and pictorial quality.

The latest innovation in the world of cinema is the digital theater, also known as hybrid art. Such technological advancements depict the perfect amalgamation of visual and audio tech coupled with the human aspects often missing in archaic cinemas. With so many advanced features, enjoying a couple of hours in the cinema has become commonplace for most individuals, and this is how the theater owners are compounding hefty bucks while investing heavily, too.


The technological advancements have been there for a couple of decades now. It was in 1980âs when accurate satellite technology, fax machines and video tech was used to grab the attention of viewers by offering the technologically advanced cinema. At that time, the use of personal computers opened new gateways for the performing arts. It was in early 1990âs when the cinematic technology enjoyed a completely new era, when theater owners were inclined towards going with the latest technological development to satisfy the appetite of the audience for the latest tech.

Not only with movies, cinematic technology has rolled through the sonography niche, allowing better-than-ever 3D modeling images to assist doctors in making more precise diagnoses. Many sonographers from Canada to China that took technology classes are exposed to cinematic classes, too, thereby allowing them to make more accurate videos. Realistically, it's not implausible to assume that cinematography is everywhere.

Various Technologies

Today, the state of the art digital theaters use the latest sound equipment along with the high-quality art projections opportunities there for the taking. Owing to the use of computer animations, and the animated films being liked by the audience, the âdesktop theatersâ are often used to enhance the performances. For Digital Dance, laser beams are used to get the job done, whereas, haze and fog are the name of the game for enhancing the digital cinematic experience for the audience.

With that, special effects are more or less the part of every film, so to get the job done of having the best effects, UV and the virtual backlight is the primary choice, because these can excite the fluorescent material such as the Day Glo Paint, resulting in special effects, which can do the trick with ease.

Digital mixing consoles have also become essential for the theater owners to cater to the requirements of the audience. Surround-sound is the most widely used sound technology type the cinemas go for. There cannot be a set pattern in connection to the technological developments a cinema needs to go with. The storyline, the artistic sense and the performance must be in coherence with the technology. It is to ensure everything is in place perfectly, as otherwise, excess or inappropriate use of technology can serve to be a huge setback.

Impact of Technology on the Plot of the Film

The advanced technology has changed the thinking and methodologies the conventional filmmakers work on. The critics are of the view that the more are the special effects, the worse the plot becomes. Along with that, the directors are also criticized for being skeptical about the plot of the film, and for offering most of their attention to technological effects for the film. Whatever the critics say, one thing is for certain: the film fanatics richly enjoy the special effects and other technology there for the taking in a film.
