Classic Cinemas and UEC Theatres Make Sound Investment with GDC Technology featuring DTS:X Immersive Sound

Classic Cinemas Charlestown in St. Charles (IL) and UEC Theatres 14 Cleveland (TN) install future-proof audio technologies for audiences to experience movies in realistic, rich immersive sound
GDC Technology Limited, a world-leading digital cinema solutions provider, announced today at CinemaCon 2016 that two of the most innovative theatre circuits in the nation have installed immersive audio technology, powered by GDC Immersive Sound Media Solution featuring DTS:X™. 

Classic Cinemas Charlestown 18 andUEC Theatres 14 Cleveland are the latest U.S. locations certified to exhibit content released with a DTS:X soundtrack.As a DTS:X worldwide certification services agent, GDC Technology will be leading the effort to enhance additional auditoriums for both circuits with immersive sound in the future.
 
DTS:X replicates a real-world sound environment and transports the audience into a new dimension of sound immersion by moving sound objects to and through specific locations - in front of, behind, above and beside the audience - precisely where the creator intended.
 
The inherent flexibility of DTS:X provides exhibitors the ability to offer their customers a compelling immersive experience in their theatres, regardless of size or configuration, whether via an auditorium upgrade or in new construction. Combined with the flexible speaker layout that DTS:X affords exhibitors and the additional processing power of the GDC immersive sound solution is now available and affordable to more theatres than ever before, large and small alike.
 
“We have always been at the forefront when it comes to improving the moviegoing experience, installing the latest amenities,” said Chris Johnson, CEO of Classic Cinemas.  “We have paid particularly close attention to the latest technologies in sight and sound throughout our long history.  We were the first circuit to convert to all-4K DLP Cinema projection and looking forward to the day when every movie is released in immersive sound.  With GDC featuring DTS:X, the plans are now in place to be ready.” 
 
“At UEC, we believe in delivering the most innovative and advanced technologies available to our guests,” said Steve Ross, vice president of theatre operations at United Entertainment Corp. “GDC is one of our most trusted partners. When they demonstrated its affordability, flexibility, and amazing sound, it was an easy decision to select DTS:X as our premium sound at UEC Theatres 14 Cleveland. DTS:X combined with GDC’s new immersive sound server is a win-win-win for our audience.”
 
According to Tony Adamson, GDC senior vice president, strategic planning, DTS:X offers exhibitors an affordable solution for any size auditorium, not just premium large format auditoriums. “For 15 years, GDC Technology has provided the industry with a wide-range of reliable digital cinema solutions. Our partnership with DTS was the next logical step to providing a one-stop shop for exhibitors,” said Mr. Adamson. “DTS:X will provide Classic Cinemas and UEC Theatres with a sound experience like no other and set them apart from competitors.”
