LG Electronics (LG) tell us they are wowing moviegoers in Taiwan with the opening of the world’s first movie theatre equipped with LG LED Cinema Display technology. It also features Dolby’s cinema server solution and Dolby Atmos immersive audio.
Paik Ki-mun, head of the Information Display business unit of LG Electronics Business Solutions Company said “Our intent is to elevate the movie-going experience beyond what consumers have become accustomed to. We’re confident that the advanced technologies behind LG LED Cinema Display and Dolby solutions will grow our share of the growing LED cinema market.”
LG and Dolby Laboratories said that they closely collaborated to integrate Dolby’s Integrated Media Server (IMS3000) with LG’s innovative LED Cinema Display. Dolby’s IMS3000 allows movies to play in full Dolby Atmos to produce a wide soundstage that surrounds the audience by projecting sounds corresponding to the movement and position of objects on the screen. Pairing Dolby Atmos with the vibrant, lifelike images of LG’s LED Cinema Display creates a more immersive experience that makes going to the movies even more memorable and magical.
At 14 meters wide and seven meters high, the LG screen produces finely-detailed 4K images. LG’s system ensures excellent picture quality across the entire surface without any distortion and due to its ability to control each individual pixel, LG LED Cinema Display guarantees a superior contrast ratio and amazingly accurate colour reproduction. LG LED Cinema Display also meets the highest standards for content security and Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCI) certification.
All of this is in collaboration with Taiwan’s leading theatre chain, Showtime Cinemas.
