The America film, Beauty and Beast has grossed over 4,273,401 after being released for 21 days. The growth of movie profit in the video market is also developing rapidly. In this paper, we will focus on the PLF(Premium Large-Format) video technology, because PLF video technology can help audience to enhance the sense of 'immersion' and enjoy a different visual feast. In PLF video technology, IMAX, screen X, 360 degrees circular screen are the most important formats. By comparative analysis of these 3 formats, the biggest difference is their number of screens and appearance. Based on the result we can understand the 3 kinds of PLF platforms better and help us to make a choice between them. In addition, further research about the manufacture method of PLF technology will be discussed.
