RealD Technology started distributing its technology to megaplexes and cinemas worldwide in 2009. RealD technology uses digital stereoscopic image projection to give dimensionality to the images that are seen on the screen. It utilizes low light, absorption filters and film speeds up to 48 frames per second to achieve this effect.
Peter Jackson's Hobbit films are a stunning example of using 48 frames per second continually throughout their production. Some other notable films to use the technology over the years are Toy Story, Toy Story 2, Toy Story 3, Thor, Pirahna 3D, Kung Fu Panda 2, Priest, Despicable Me, The Last Airbender, Megamind, Sanctum, Shrek: Forever After, Tangled, The Green Hornet and Up.
