Bardan Cinema, a renowned full-service cinema integrator and
leading digital technology provider, announced today the completion of Dolby
Atmos® advanced sound system installations in eight Caribbean Cinemas CXC
Premium Theaters located in throughout the Caribbean and Puerto Rico. Caribbean Cinemas is the largest motion
picture exhibitor in the Caribbean.
The milestone marks the halfway point in an extensive technology
integration project that will ultimately see many new Dolby Atmos® installations
completed for Caribbean Cinemas by the end of the year. The process has enabled Bardan to develop a
multiphase approach to deploying Dolby Atmos® which can be used as a template
for future projects.
During the first phase Bardan helped Caribbean Cinemas analyze the
benefits of all the immersive audio technology presently on the market. With Bardan’s input, Caribbean Cinemas chose
to equip all of their current and future premium theatres with Dolby Atmos.
“Dolby Atmos sound technology simply offers the best, immersive sound
experience that theater-goers can find in today’s competitive marketplace,” said
Vilma Benitez, CEO of Bardan Cinema. “We
salute Robert Carrady and his team for their commitment to offering Caribbean
Cinemas audiences this truly innovative technology which brings movies to life.”
Dolby Atmos fills the cinema with breathtaking, robust full-range
audio object-based sound, which comes from all directions, including
overhead. It delivers astonishing
clarity, richness, detail and depth.
Dolby Atmos’ 3-D sound quality follows the onscreen story projecting the
audio all around the audience, giving them the feeling they are inside the
action. It also conveys the artist’s
intent, delivering the full impact of the entertainment. Bardan engineers and
designers worked with Dolby during the second phase of the project to gain
certification for each completed installation, thus synthesizing all aspects of
theater design in order to bring meaningful, 3D audio to audiences.
The third phase of the project may have been the most challenging,
requiring Bardan to support Dolby Atmos systems in remote, geographically
expansive cinema locations throughout the Americas.
Every installation includes Klipsch Pro Line speakers for each screen,
featuring the KPT-MCM-11 THX® Approved four-way cinema system, designed for
grand auditoriums fitted with digital sound reproduction equipment. The high output extended high frequency horn
module, the KPT-Grand-HF-T, provides extra presence in more majestic-sized
theaters. The MCM Grand is ultra-efficient and can distribute even sound
coverage to every seat in the house.
- High Efficiency: reproducing the most sound per
watt vs the popular misconception of “the higher the power handling the better”.
- Low Distortion: even the softest sounds are heard
with clarity and detail, the loudest sounds without harshness or distortion.
- Controlled Directivity: The accurate projection
of sound which, in turn, creates a much more lifelike soundstage.
- Controlled Frequency Response: Producing the
required response to maximize various acoustic environments.
Through the use of highly efficient speaker
designs, handcrafted cabinetry and a thirst for real engineering breakthroughs.
