Calcutta, India—Jan 11, 2006

State-of-the-art multiplex opens in Calcutta with QSC sound

Whether known as Kolkata or Calcutta, India's largest city is a pulsing metropolis of over twelve million inhabitants. Once known as the "jewel in the crown of the British Raj," this former capital of British India is a nexus of culture in Bengal, its cosmopolitan streets buzzing with English, Hindi, Bengali, Urdu, and a range of local dialects. The city's eastern suburb of Udayan is a popular residential area, home to the Satyajit Ray Film Institute, many new schools and hospitals, and an array of sleek, modern high-rise residential projects. One of the more ambitious of these is Calcutta Metropolitan's Hiland Park, a massive development of nine residential towers, each between 17 and 28 stories high.

The complex also includes a wide range of retail and commercial space, including the Metropolis Mall, where major movie exhibition company Shringar Cinemas has opened its first of three multiplexes in the area, Fame Kolkata. The complex opened its doors in October with a star-studded inaugural premiere, and has already become the area's most popular movie-going destination and hang-out.

The state-of-the-art 900-seat multiplex features four ergonomically-designed auditoriums, offering a variety of seating options, including Royal Seating on plush sofas, as well as the introduction of special "Romeo and Juliet" couple seating with just two seats per row. The complex boasts fully computerized operations and booking, specially designed lighting and projectors, and a fully digital surround sound system from Costa Mesa, California-based QSC Audio.

Each of the cinemas' four auditoriums offer a breathtaking audio experience, with three QSC SC-422 high-power, two-way bi-amp Screen Channel systems, featuring a pair of 15-inch LF drivers and a large-format 3-inch titanium diaphragm HF driver. The Screen Channel loudspeakers are augmented by a pair of SB-5218 subwoofers, an 800-Watt model with dual 18-inch drivers. A total of twenty-four QSC amplifiers drive the four auditoriums.

"With the launch of Fame Kolkata, we're giving cinema lovers a whole new viewing experience," remarked Shringar Cinemas' Managing Director Shravan Shroff, who cited the auditoriums' groundbreaking audio systems as one of the most important aspects of the sensory experience.
