Rancho Cordova, Calif., USA – 26 March 2014 – Barco, the worldwide market share leader in digital cinema, further expands its footprint of the Auro 11.1 immersive cinema sound solution, with current installations at over 150 screens around the world and another 300 committed for deployment in 2014, while adding a powerful slate of upcoming summer blockbusters.
To date, exhibitors have signed agreements with Barco to install more than 300 additional screens with Auro 11.1 in their cinemas – on top of the 150 auditoriums already featuring Auro 11.1 – with the goal of elevating the moviegoing experience in their premium auditoriums. In fact, due to the economic advantages of Barco’s immersive sound solution, leading exhibitors worldwide are embracing Auro 11.1 as their preferred sound format in markets such as The United States, Latin America, Switzerland, Austria, Taiwan, Estonia, and many others, allowing them to add value to their own specific brand of premium cinema experience.
Auro 11.1 is a critical component of Barco’s recently introduced CinemaBarco, dramatically enhancing the showmanship and immersive qualities of the movie for audiences, who will soon embark on a new entertainment journey in cinema for a true destination experience.
So far, Mr. A S Lakshminarayan and his team have already mixed the successful 2014 thriller Jilla (R. T. Neason), Aarambham directed by Vishnuvardhan, Vizhi Moodi Yosithaal directed by KG Senthil Kumar and the much-anticipated historical drama Ramanujan, directed by Gnana Rajasekaran, in Auro-3D®. Additional Tamil movies will be mixed in the format over the upcoming months, making them ready for screening in theaters equipped with the Auro 11.1 by Barco sound system.
A hundred theaters in Indias southeastern state of Andhra Pradesh will soon be equipped with Auro 11.1 by Barco. The company is planning to install the first 25 systems before the year is out. Two postproduction and mixing facilities belonging to production house Ramanaidu Studios in Hyderabad will also install the certified Auro-3D® Studio System. Ramanaidu frequently collaborates with film production company Suresh Productions, a major player in the Telugu cinema industry, so this move is sure to revolutionise the market.
This announcement was made at a high profile press event in Hyderabad, featuring Suresh Babu, managing director of Suresh Productions, as well as Auro Technologies CEO Wilfried Van Baelen. The news was immediately picked up by several major Indian publications:
Both Suresh Babu and Wilfried Van Baelen were filmed at the event, explaining what makes Auro-3D and the immersive sound experience so different:
