Video: ❶ Cinema In 3D: How Harmful Is It?
The technology and film industry is continually evolving and offering viewers new ways to experience thrills and unforgettable experiences. Popular 3D cinema is certainly spectacular, but how safe is it? Location: Location:
Any new product that appears on the market causes two opposite phenomena. On the one hand, a furious interest in innovation is growing, on the other hand, everything new and little-known causes a wave of rumors and suspicions that a fashionable novelty may be harmful or even dangerous. In order to adequately assess the degree of danger of 3D cinema, it is necessary to understand the following fundamental points.
Firstly, the 3D format itself cannot be harmful, since in the way of image transmission it differs little from ordinary cinema. But when watching a movie in stereo format, two planar (two-dimensional) images are combined, due to which the so-called "presence effect" occurs. This process causes additional stress on both the eyes and the central nervous system and, first of all, the brain.
Secondly, although the 3D technology itself is not harmful, if the rules for showing such films are violated, the quality of glasses for watching stereoscopic movies increases the risk of individual negative reactions (dizziness, headache, feeling of "sand" in the eyes) increases significantly.
Therefore, it is impossible to talk about the direct threat posed by 3D films. However, when going to the cinema, it is necessary to exercise reasonable caution in people with disorders of the vestibular apparatus, chronic diseases of the central nervous system and organs of vision.
It is necessary to make sure that a high-quality licensed copy of the film is presented for the demonstration, and that the glasses provided in the cinema are made in an industrial, not homemade way.
Children's age is not a contraindication to attending 3D sessions, however, the child's condition during and after viewing should be monitored especially carefully - the child's psyche is very susceptible, and the nervous system is not yet sufficiently strong.
If, after 15 minutes of watching a movie in 3D format, unpleasant sensations appear, it is better to leave the cinema.
