Cinema 21 Installs Southeast Asia’s First Christie Vive Audio Cinema Solution in Jakarta

Christie®, the global leader in visual displays and audio technologies, is proud to announce that Cinema 21, the largest movie theater chain in Indonesia, has installed the first Christie Vive Audio™ cinema sound system in its state-of-the-art Auditorium 2 at Epicentrum XXI complex located in Central Jakarta to provide the best possible cinematic experience for its movie-goers.

The 302-seat auditorium, which features a 14-meter screen and plush seating for maximum comfort, is the preferred venue for premieres and gala screenings in the Indonesian capital. The Vive Audio system installed has been configured to meet the requirements of the Dolby® Atmos™ sound technology system. Cinema 21 becomes the first movie theater chain in Southeast Asia to be equipped with Christie’s cutting-edge cinema audio solution which utilizes ribbon driver speakers and Class D amplifiers.

Besides offering truly rich, dynamic and detailed sound, the innovative Christie Vive Audio system unlocks the full potential of the DCI digital cinema audio format and is compatible with the leading immersive and surround audio formats in the  market. It consists of wall and ceiling surround speakers that use unique ribbon driver technology in a line array design, purpose-built for cinema environments. 

The installation in Auditorium 2 was undertaken by Christie’s Indonesian partner,  PT Megatech Engineering, and comprises close to 50 Christie Vive Audio speakers of varying combinations. These include LA3 screen channel speakers, LA3C speakers for ceiling surrounds, LA4S speakers for wall surround effects, S215 subwoofers (for full range frequency response), as well as S218 for Low Frequency Effects (subwoofers) channels. The end result is highly immersive cinema sound known for delivering exceptional power and performance.

“We’ve been working with Christie for almost a decade and have always been very impressed with the company’s constant technological and groundbreaking advancements in digital cinema. We have benefited much working with Christie’s technical team from the Vive Audio installation and are very pleased to once again bring the latest cinema technologies to the audiences in Indonesia,” commented Rudy Susanto, president, 
PT Megatech Engineering.

Besides the immersive aural experience brought about by Christie Vive Audio, audiences can enjoy the most brilliant and high resolution visuals offered by the Christie CP4230 4K DLP® Digital Cinema Projector that is already deployed in the auditorium. With twice as many pixels in horizontal and vertical directions than 2K, the CP4230 is ready for the next evolution of digital cinema – capable of displaying premium 4K content or 2D/3D 2K High Frame Rate (HFR) feature films and alternative content in its original format. Combined with the newly installed Vive Audio, Auditorium 2 has joined a league of “all Christie” cinema halls offering Christie’s complete cinema solutions that sets new standards, and deliver superior movie-viewing and cinema sound experience.

“When we first heard the sound from Christie Vive Audio, we were so impressed by its clarity and how it delivered the audio details in the movies. This is exactly what we’re looking for to provide our patrons with the best movie listening experience ever,” said Suryo Suherman, president, Cinema 21. “We’re proud to be the first cinema chain in Southeast Asia to install Christie Vive Audio and are confident that it is the best audio system available today for accurate reproduction of immersive cinema audio formats.”

Lin Yu, vice president, Christie Asia Pacific, added, “We are delighted and honored that Cinema 21 has chosen Christie Vive Audio to be installed in one of its most well-known cinema complexes in Indonesia. This is a clear testimony that besides offering advanced visual solutions, we have also set the bar in immersive cinema sound that cinema-goers appreciate. With the sustained growth of the cinema industry in Indonesia, we will continue to devote our commitment and dedication to cinema operators like Cinema 21.”

An increasing number of cinema chains around the world have embraced the Christie Vive Audio, with close to 150 installations worldwide to date. Besides Cinema 21, China’s largest movie theater operator, Wanda Cinema Line, has also deployed Vive Audio in Hall 9 of its flagship cinema complex in Beijing. The audio quality is widely acclaimed by industry players and the venue has been used for a number of gala screenings, including the China premiere of the Hollywood blockbuster film Transformers: Age of Extinction in June last year.
