Introducing XPAND

Turn Your Multiplex into a Digital Powerhouse!
XPAND, a flexible digital cinema solution that combines a wide variety of 2D & 3D entertainment content with theme park features, makes its U.S. debut today at ShoWest. The entertainment company’s flagship product, XPAND, offers a powerful integration of dramatic digital imagery and multi-channel sound with the excitement of a theme park or location-based entertainment experience.

XPAND’s digital 3D projectors, available in 1.5k resolution, 2k resolution, and DCI compliant versions, can accommodate screens up to 18-meters (59 feet) wide, and for giant-screen theaters (including Domes), digital projector systems are available in resolutions up to 8k. To the already 3D immersive experience, XPAND adds participatory features with enhanced moving seats that offer multiple effects options, such as air blasts, ticklers, and lightning. All of these special effects can be custom-synchronized to the action of each movie title. These SFX seats not only provide a dual-motion ride but a wired interactive system, which can be employed to create truly interactive experiences and to play interactive games. An industry advanced lighting system and effects including rain, wind and fog can also be programmed individually for each entertainment title.

XPAND’s extraordinary melding of advanced entertainment technologies is the result of a brand new joint venture between Kolosej Entertainment Group, a fast growing European entertainment company and part of the financial-based KD Group and Edwards Technologies, Inc., a Southern California designer and provider of digital 3D theatre systems for theme parks, museums and entertainment venues worldwide.

“XPAND transforms the cinema complex into a dynamic and very attractive entertainment environment,” says Sergej Racman, President of XPAND. “Just imagine watching the movie “Shrek” and being able to ride with him on his horse with the SFX Seats, feel the wind and rain during a storm or even smell the flowers along the ride. There’s no home theatre or even digital cinema -- no matter how advanced -- that can create an experience that even comes close to this.”

The flexibility of the XPAND digital cinema solution is unparalleled in the industry. The system can be easily configured to provide diverse entertainment opportunities to four distinct markets:
• Blockbusters. Turn your cinema into an immersive digital experience with the XPAND system. Digital versions of feature-length blockbusters are ideal for movie lovers who prefer the pristine images and 3D immersive sound. Audiences enjoy the added thrill of XPAND’s special effects, which can be custom-programmed to suit any movie.
• Digital Giant Screen Content. You’ll have access to 45 films from the giant screen “IMAX” library. Both 2D and 3D films including “Bugs,” “Mysteries of Egypt,” “Sharks 3D,” “Wild Safari 3D” and “Haunted Castle” are among those available, a sure sell for family entertainment. XPAND is a distributor of content by Attraction Media, nWave Entertainment and K2 Communications.
• Edutainment presentations, targeting schools, groups and families. Groups, companies and institutions can take advantage of the different capabilities – including personalized interactivity, special effects and digital projection.
• Multi-sensory experiences turn the multiplex into a destination for afternoon and late night crowds. Multi-channel digital audio, 2D and 3D digital projection, interactive games, customized lighting effects and a variety of sensory effects can be programmed to create compelling creative experiences.

XPAND plans to partner with a minimum of ten international exhibitors who will enjoy substantial financial support from XPAND with regard to technology, installation, ongoing operations and marketing.

XPAND comes in three turnkey solutions:
• The full solution includes a 3D digital system (HD 1.5k, 2k, or DCI-compliant projection, sound system, screen, server, control console), SFX moving seats and in-theater effects.
• The enhanced solution includes the 3D digital system with in-theater effects.
• The basic solution includes the exceptional 3D digital cinema system.
