& Photo Research Institute
In the beginning of the 60's NIKFI together with "Mosfilm" have developed a new, more advanced system of three-dimensional cinematography "STEREO-70" (developers A.G.Boltyansky, N.A.Ovsyanikova and others), in which a 70 mm film is used for shooting and projection (since 1994 shooting equipment was transformed into international 65 mm standard for negative). This equipment is universal and is applicable for shooting and projection of stereofilms both in polarizing (using glasses), and raster screens (no glasses) methods. The first stereofilm shot using this system was a movie "Mysterious Monk" (1968), and all subsequent 3D movies were made using this equipment.
