When you think of The Lord of the Rings, it is hard not to think about the brave heroes who vigorously defend their homes against evil, against Sauron from the Land of Mordor. The captivating action, the amazing landscapes and the crystal-clear close-ups of Frodo and his companions will remain in our memories forever. But how would this movie look on the screen in a small format? Hardly any director would look good, let alone win an Oscar. The spoiled audience has long waited for top class entertainment.
To achieve this, the sound and, primarily, the imaging quality must be at the top of their games. Only then can the images capture the emotions and turn a trip to the movies into an unforgettable experience. Opulent images, perfect contrast and razor-sharp details are no longer dependent on the skills of the director, but on the lens technology.
And this is where you run into Carl Zeiss in the cinema, the market leader in lenses for professional cameras. Magnification factors up to 1000x capture even the slightest wink from Frodo and Gandalf. For this reason, practically all film teams rely on the cine lenses from Oberkochen – be it a major production or a simple commercial. Just like that, Hollywood is not so far away.
