Lotte Cinema World Tower, located in Seoul, Korea, has chosen Christie solutions for both audio and visuals for its cinemas. The venue has 21 theaters and over 4,600 seats, with each auditorium offering its own unique concept and interior design.

All auditoriums are complete with Christie digital cinema solutions, including the flagship Christie Solaria Series projectors, Christie Vive Audio surround sound systems, Christie ACT Digital Cinema Theater Control and Christie Integrated Media Block (IMB). The installation was managed by Christie and its Korean partner Eugenetek Corporation.

Visuals are handled by the Christie Solaria CP2215, CP2220, CP2230 and CP4230, which utilize the latest generation DLP Cinema electronics platform. Among the seven auditoriums fitted with Christie Vive Audio, five are specially configured to meet Dolby Atmos sound technology requirements. Rounding out the list of installed products are the Christie ACT and Christie IMB solutions designed to provide reliability in terms of theater automation control and content delivery.

Audio is provided by Christie Vive Audio, which offers DCI digital cinema audio format and supports leading formats such as Dolby Atmos, 7.1 and 5.1 surround sound. It consists of wall and ceiling surround speakers that use unique ribbon driver technology in a line array design, purpose-built for cinema environments.

Joon-Ho Lee, president of Eugenetek Corporation, said: “Lotte Cinema World Tower is one of the biggest projects that we have ever embarked on and we are thankful to be given this opportunity to be involved in this major installation. We have worked closely with the team from Christie throughout this project and are proud to present the best-quality picture and sound to the audience with Christie’s cutting edge cinema solutions.
