It’s Showtime for Christie’s 400th Vive Audio system
TAIWAN: The 400th installation of Christie’s Vive Audio cinema sound system was recently completed, the manufacturer has confirmed. Christie's Taiwanese partner, Dacoms Technology, facilitated the purchase.
The system was acquired by Taiwanese cinema chain Showtime Cinemas for its recently-built Taichung branch and all 17 of its screens will be complemented by Vive Audio LA Series speakers. Christie RGB laser projectors with enhanced wavelength diversification technology (EWD), as well as CP2215, CP2220 and CP2230 DLP projectors have also been integrated in what reportedly marks the largest installation of the manufacturer’s products in the APAC region.
‘We’re delighted to be among the leading exhibitors in the region to deploy state-of-the-art audio and visual solutions from Christie in our latest cineplex in Taichung, for our guests to enjoy a spectacular movie experience,’ enthused Willy Liao, general manager for Showtime Cinemas. ‘As one of the leading cinema chains in Taiwan, we have constantly endeavoured to offer the best visual and audio experience to our patrons. Christie Vive Audio, with its unique design and amazing acoustics, perfectly suits our needs.’
‘As the creative community pushes the envelope to deliver the most realistic audio experience possible to moviegoers, we’ve developed these Christie Vive audio products specifically to help production teams achieve their creative objectives and exhibitors meet performance challenges,’ noted Patrick Artiaga, director of business development at Christie Audio. ‘Since the first components began shipping in 2014, we have expanded the Christie Vive Audio system product line-up to include a wide-range of speakers, amplifiers and audio-videos processors.’
