CinemaxX AG Installs Meyer Sound Cinema Experience in Hamburg and Copenhagen
One of Germany’s largest multiplex operators, CinemaxX AG has cemented its status as a technology leader in film exhibition by installing state-of-the-art Meyer Sound Cinema Experience™ audio systems in two of its premier screening rooms in Hamburg and Copenhagen.
Based on the Acheron® screen channel loudspeakers, the Meyer Sound systems are installed in Screen One at Hamburg’s CinemaxX Dammtor (1,001 seats) and Screen One at Denmark’s CinemaxX Copenhagen (754 seats). Both cinemas are also equipped with Sony 4K digital cinema projectors.
“We have created a special movie-going experience that now includes the best in sound along with the ultimate picture quality,” states CinemaxX CEO, Christian Gisy. “The Meyer Sound Cinema Experience is in a world of its own. Speech intelligibility is excellent even during action sequences. Also, the transition from front to surround is seamless, and the low-end is really powerful.
“This specific test in Hamburg may be the beginning of a significant investment,” adds Gisy, “because based on early audience reactions we expect more screens to follow during the next months.”
Meyer Sound's new Cinema Experience is a complete, integrated cinema sound line comprising self-powered screen channel loudspeakers, surrounds and subwoofers controlled by dedicated digital processing electronics. Calibrated on site for each screening room, Cinema Experience systems faithfully and consistently translate the full impact and details in a movie sound track from the sound editor’s mixing stage to the theatre. Meyer Sound Cinema Experience systems are now in use at George Lucas’s Skywalker Sound, Francis Ford Coppola’s American Zoetrope, ImageMovers Digital, and London’s De Lane Lea, in addition to commercial exhibition venues such as Toronto’s TIFF Bell Lightbox and Estonia’s Solaris Kino cinemas.
Both systems were installed by Düsseldorf-based Film Ton Technik Rüttgers (FTT). Egon Gräfen, general manager of FTT, said, “FTT is excited to be working with Meyer Sound to provide powerful, linear cinema sound systems to CinemaxX and in other thrilling projects together in the future. Meyer Sound's commitment to high quality sound, technical expertise, and comprehensive support makes it an ideal partner for FTT as we endeavor to provide a competitive edge in the cinema exhibition marketplace."
The system installed at CinemaxX Dammtor comprises three Acheron screen channel loudspeakers, each augmented by an Acheron LF loudspeaker, in addition to six X-800C subwoofers, 20 HMS-10 surround loudspeakers, six MM-4XP miniature loudspeakers, and a Galileo® loudspeaker management system with two Galileo 616 processors.
The cinema in Copenhagen uses three Acheron 100 screen channel speakers, each supplemented by a single Acheron LF loudspeaker. The system also includes six X-800C subwoofers, 26 HMS-10 surround loudspeakers, and a Galileo loudspeaker management system with two Galileo 408 processors.
CinemaxX AG is a publicly traded holding company operating cinemas in Germany and Denmark, with a total of 34 cinemas, about 300 screens, and approximately 80,000 seats.
