AUTHOR: Inavate

Wanda Cinema Line has equipped its latest “Wanda Hall 9” auditorium at Wujiaochang Wanda Cinema in Shanghai, China with Christie’s Vive Audio cinema solution. This is the second major installation of Vive Audio in China. Last year, Wanda Cinema Line became the first cinema chain in Asia to equip its Beijing CBD Wanda Plaza cineplex with Christie Vive Audio solution.

“Wanda Hall 9” is an exclusive class of cinema auditoriums targeted specifically at movie aficionados. There are currently three such auditoriums located in Beijing and Shanghai. This particular auditorium at Wujiaochang Wanda Cinema complex boasts over 270 premium seats and a huge 17-metre high-gain metallic projection screen. The Vive Audio system has been configured to meet the requirements of the Dolby Atmos sound technology system.

The installation in Hall 9 auditorium has more than 50 Christie Vive Audio speakers of varying combinations. These included LA3 screen channel speakers, LA3C speakers for ceiling surrounds, LA3S speakers for advanced surround effects, LA4S speakers for wall surround effects and S215 subwoofers as well as S218 for low frequency effect channels. Visuals in Hall 9 auditorium are powered by the Christie CP4230 4K DLP Digital Cinema Projector.

Maojun Zeng, general manager, Wanda Cinema Line: “Our first Christie Vive Audio installation in Beijing received much acclaim from patrons and industry players alike since its opening in May last year, and we’re convinced that Christie Vive Audio is one of the best cinema audio solutions that effectively delivers the power and performance that offers the best sound experience for our patrons.”
