A blow-up is the term used to describe a print made by enlarging, or “blowing-up”, smaller formats, usually those on 35mm film, but 70mm prints have also been derived from 16mm and even 8mm originals.

70mm: Nobody Does it Better
Von Thomas Hauerslev
Die offenkundige Lösung ist, einen großformatigen 70mm-Film mit seiner gegenüber dem Standardfilm dreifachen Auflösung zu verwenden. Bei 70 mm ist weniger Vergrößerung erforderlich, und die verbesserte Qualität ist sofort bemerkbar. Es wird eine sehr eindrucksvolle Erfahrung für die meisten sein, anders als alles, was sie bis dahin gesehen haben. Sobald sie diese neue Qualität erkennen werden, d. h. große, helle und scharfe Bilder, werden sie 70 mm-Vorführungen vorziehen. Das Publikum wird jeden Film im 70mm-Format auf der unbewussten Ebene weit intensiver wahrnehmen, weil das Gehirn drei- bis viermal so Bildinformation pro Sekunde zu „verarbeiten“ hat.
70mm: Nobody Does it Better
By Thomas Hauerslev
The obvious solution is to use large format 70mm film with its 3X times the resolution of standard film. With 70mm, less magnification is required and the improved quality is noticeable at once. It will be a high-impact experience for most people, unlike anything they have seen previously. Once they become aware of the WOW factor, ie. big, bright and sharp images, they will prioritize 70mm presentations. The audience will perceive any film in 70mm to be far more intense on the subconscious level because the brain has three to four times more picture information to "process" per second.

Sensurround for Earthquake Commemoration

A Tale of Old Whiff
By F Gwynplaine MacIntyre
I saw "A Tale of Old Whiff" WITHOUT the Smell-O-Vision apparatus ... an absence which diminishes the effect of this film, as we're meant to be able to smell all the items that Old Whiff doesn't notice. Still this is an excellent and innovative cartoon ... not especially funny, but charming and imaginative. I wish that it were widely available, even without the Smell-O-Vision.
