Moving Image Technologies Introduces Cine-Sation™ Programmable Acoustically Vibrating Cinema Chairs to the American Marketplace

Moving Image Technologies (MiT) is proud to announce its partnership with leading seating effects technologist ACOUVE Inc. of Korea. MiT will bring the ACOUVE state of the art seating effects system to North and South American cinemas, providing sales, marketing, installation, technical support, warranty and distribution for CINE-SATION.

Joe Delgado, EVP Sales and Marketing for MIT says “We’ve explored the value add landscape for cinemas and concluded that the exhibition industry is doing an incredible job of providing an amenities-driven experience with larger screens, more luxurious seating, immersive sound, and of course the best in Digital 2D and 3D presentation.

CINE-SATION is a natural extension for their business.”  He goes on to say “The CINE-SATION system is not a direct competitor to the more elaborate, higher cost solutions that involve theme- park-like mechanically moving parts and include wind, water and full motion and the like; rather CINE-SATION offers an excitingly new extra-sensory experience at a much more credible price point with a very acceptable ROI for the exhibitor. Encoding our effects to the full audio track of the movie and having this approved by the studios in their QC process uniquely differentiates CINE-SATION from all other similar solutions, while ensuring the protection of the creative intent of the movie."  
Tae Gyun Kim, CEO of ACOUVE, states “Our consultant, industry veteran Peter Nicholas, introduced our team led by Antonio Yoon, ACOUVE’s VP of Sales, to the MIT team.  Since then we have worked very diligently with MiT to provide a very exciting premium seating effect technology into the Americas that would mirror our success in Asia. With MIT's experience in the exhibition industry we now feel we will be able to provide a unique value proposition to cinema owners.  The systems will be made in the US using our proprietary technology, creating further opportunity for ROI improvements to theatre owners.” 
TG Kim continues "The availability of approved full features from the studios will be critical for the success of this business.  ACOUVE has commissioned  Peter Nicholas to spearhead Hollywood Studio communication to ensure the earliest acceptance of the CINE-SATION technology.  Gladly we are enjoying significant studio interest in our venture."

CINE-SATION is a proprietary patented seating technology that is encoded with the DCP (Digital Cinema Package) at the ACOUVE authoring suite in Burbank, CA prior to distribution to the cinemas. “Our encoders take the time to uniquely program the placement and magnitude of the effects using special authoring tools. Once CINE-SATION is encoded and packaged, the studios review and approve prior to distribution.” says Frank Tees, VP Technical Sales Support for Moving iMage Technologies.  
Of major interest to the studios is the relatively short encoding time and exceptionally quick final QC process  and adjustment time offered to the studios prior to release.

Regarding CINE-SATION system installation, Mr. Tees continues, “We have streamlined components and the install timeline for a minimum of down time to the exhibitor.”   
As a result,primarily, of the patented design of evenly distributed seat vibration, CINE-SATION’s effects are never offensive or distracting, and run from the subtle to the more physical as the action narrative on the screen unfolds--never overwhelming but always feeling as though you are living the action.
