Cathay Cineplex debuts its first ever Dolby Atmos cinema

Published: ASIA

SINGAPORE: Electronics & Engineering Pte Ltd (E&E) recently installed an EAW sound reinforcement system into Singapore’s 10-screen multiplex, Cathay Cineplex Jem, for its brand new Digital Xtreme hall – which features the cinema chain’s first-ever incorporation of Dolby Atmos technology.

Reported to be ‘the largest movie screen in the west,’ the Digital Xtreme hall boasts 278 seats and 46 Dolby Atmos channels, in addition to a 13.6m by 7.2m extra large cinema screen.

E&E was appointed to perform the integration of Dolby Atmos at Cathay Cineplex Jem; the main challenge being to design the directional configuration of the EAW speakers to meet Dolby’s requirements to optimise 46 channels of playback in the hall.

‘We are very excited with the introduction of Cathay’s first Dolby Atmos cinema hall in collaboration with E&E,’ said Leong-Yan Yoong, regional director of South East Asia, Dolby Laboratories. ‘Dolby Atmos continues to set a new standard for immersive audio experiences in the cinema with the latest Hollywood blockbuster movies and stunning new exhibition halls such as the Digital Xtreme hall at Cathay Cineplex Jem.’

‘Our cinema engineers have a wealth of experience and are Dolby trained to ensure that we are able to meet all the necessary requirements set by Dolby Atmos,’ explained Ronald Goh, managing director for Electronics & Engineering Pte Ltd. ‘We are confident that this will undoubtedly appeal to movie-goers, as the new sound platform will be a truly unforgettable experience. We are very proud to have been part of the team that has made this installation possible for Cathay.’

‘We are very proud to work with Dolby and E&E to implement the groundbreaking Dolby Atmos sound technology at the new and iconic Digital Xtreme hall at Cathay Cineplex Jem,’ added Suhaimi Rafdi, chief executive officer of Cathay Organisation. ‘This marks another significant milestone for Cathay Cineplexes as we continue to offer revolutionary systems and creative content to our patrons to ensure the most epic movie experiences.’
