Wanda Cinema Line returns to Vive Audio
CHINA: China’s largest movie theatre operator, Wanda Cinema Line, has outfitted Wanda Hall 9 at the Wujiaochang Wanda Cinema in Shanghai with a Christie Vive Audio cinema system. Wanda Hall 9 is one of three auditoriums run by the chain and targeted at movie aficionados. It boasts 270 ‘premium’ seats and a 17m high projection screen. It is also the second Wanda screen to be outfitted with a full Vive Audio system following its success at Wanda Plaza Cineplex in Beijing’s CBD.
‘Our first Christie Vive Audio installation in Beijing received much acclaim from patrons and industry players alike since its opening last year, and we’re convinced that Christie Vive Audio is one of the best cinema audio solutions that effectively delivers the power and performance to offer the best sound experience for our patrons,’ commented Maojun Zeng, general manager at Wanda Cinema Line. ‘We’ve decided to deploy Vive Audio at our most high-end “Wanda Hall 9” auditoriums as we are fully committed to constantly equipping our theatres with the most modern technologies and high quality presentations.’
The equipment installed features more than 50 Vive Audio loudspeakers in varying combinations and includes LA3 screen channel speakers, LA3C speakers for ceiling surrounds and LA4S speakers for wall surround effects. S215 subwoofers provide full range frequency response and S218s handle the low frequency effects channels.
‘We’re proud and honoured that Wanda Cinema Line, our longstanding partner, has once again chosen Christie Vive Audio to be installed at the Wujiaochang Wanda Cinema in Shanghai,’ said Lin Yu, vice president, Christie Asia Pacific. ‘This fully demonstrates their strong confidence in our cinema audio solution in delivering dynamic, richly detailed and enhanced aural experience to movie-goers.’
