PFS in Hi DEF!
Thanks to a grant from PATCH (Portsmouth Action Team for Community Harmony) and continued support from WEA South, Portsmouth Film Society has been able to upgrade to Hi Definition. The Projector in the Omega Centre hall was already a 1280x720 HD projector, and with some technical improvements we are now able to take full advantage of that quality. We've taken delivery of a top of the line Sony BDP 760 Blu Ray player with a direct digital connection to the projector. CONTACT, playing from a Blu-Ray HD disc will be our first HD presentation
In future, whenever possible we will screen our films from Blu Ray discs to present the best quality presentation. Even standard DVD's will see an improvement in Picture quality, making colours stronger and clearer and the image sharper. In addition many Blu Ray discs, especially of classic films, feature higher quality transfers so it's your chance to see such films at the best they've looked since their original premiere!
