Harman solution deployed for Mongolian cinema project
MONGOLIA: The Mongolia Ministry of Culture, Sport and Tourism (MCST) is currently working in conjunction with systems integrator Cinema of Sound LLC and Kinoton Korea, Inc in a project that will bring a network of professional high-quality cinemas to Mongolia. JBL’s JRX125 dual-15-inch loudspeakers and Crown’s DSi 2000 amplifiers will be installed into each of the new cinemas.
Cinema of Sound and Kinoton are currently building Standard Cinema Point theatres in Mongolia’s aimags (first-level administrative subdivisions), villages and city districts, and are contracted to build 50 more theatres in the remainder of 2013, bringing the total of theatres in Mongolia to 70. Twenty installations have been completed to date, spanning across the country’s nearly 604,00sq-m.
‘Mongolia is a country that has vast areas of scattered settlements and sparse population – so sparse that our country’s most remote citizens watch movies only on television as there are no theatres,’ said Jigjidsuren Khurelbaatar, CEO of cinema of Sound LLC. ‘Thanks to our Standard Cinema Point project, which is part of the MCST’s efforts to bring a richer cultural environment to Mongolians, people throughout Mongolia will be able to enjoy a true cinema experience with high-quality sound and projection.’
‘By standardising the equipment we’re using, we know we can depend on a high level of audio quality and dependable day-to-day operation no matter where the theatres are located,’ added Chris Bae, managing director of Kinoton Korea, Inc.
