German movie first to have Barco Auro 11.1

The German movie ‘Wir waren Könige’ has become the first German film to be mixed in Barco’s Auro 11.1 immersive cinema sound format.

The film, which will be released in Germany in summer 2014, is an independent film production by German outfits ZDF and ARTE.

“We are happy that we can add this German movie to our list of 20 feature films that are already confirmed to be mixed and released in our immersive cinema sound format during 2014,” commented Brian Claypool, senior director of strategic business development at Barco.

Developed by Auro Technologies and powered by Barco, Auro 11.1 by Barco is designed in accordance with a sound reproduction layout consisting of three layers (traditional Surround Sound with Height and Overhead layers), which enables studio sound mixers to move objects around in space to create the most realistic and acoustically perfect experience.
