European cinema chain CinemaxX AG is to equip a total of 60 screens throughout Germany and Denmark with Meyer Sound EXP cinema loudspeaker systems.
The largest audio upgrade programme in CinemaxX history got underway in 2010 with screens in Hamburg and Copenhagen, and is due to reach completion by 2013.
The self-powered EXP cinema systems encompass Acheron screen channel loudspeakers, coupled with Acheron LF low frequency screen channel loudspeakers. Also included are X-800C cinema subwoofers and HMS-10 surround loudspeakers, with digital optimisation by the Galileo loudspeaker management system.
“With Meyer Sound EXP, we have an audio component that is fully equal to the 4K digital image,” said Christian Gisy, CEO of CinemaxX. “Investing in EXP already has proven to be a wise decision, and working with Meyer Sound has been an absolute joy.
“Since installing our EXP systems, our audiences have noticed the amazing difference. Attendance for our [EXP-equipped] ‘MaxXimum Sound’ screens has increased noticeably.”
Systems integrator and installer for the entire programme is Düsseldorf-based Film Ton Technik Hannsdieter Rüttgers GmbH (FTT).
