Cinema 21, a move theatre chain in Indonesia, has become the first cinema in Southeast Asia to install Christie Vive Audio. The cinema sound was deployed in Auditorium 2 at Epicentrum XXI complex located in central Jakarta. The Vive Audio system installed has been configured to meet the requirements of the Dolby Atmos sound technology system.

The installation in Auditorium 2 was undertaken by Christie’s Indonesian partner, PT Megatech Engineering, and comprises close to 50 Christie Vive Audio speakers of varying combinations. These include LA3 screen channel speakers, LA3C speakers for ceiling surrounds, LA4S speakers for wall surround effects, S215 subwoofers (for full range frequency response), as well as S218 for Low Frequency Effects (subwoofers) channels. In addition visuals are handled by Christie visuals offered by the Christie CP4230 4K projector installed in the auditorium.

Rudy Susanto, president of PT Megatech Engineering, commented: “We have benefited much from working with Christie’s technical team from the Vive Audio installation and are very pleased to once again bring the latest cinema technologies to the audiences in Indonesia,” commented Rudy Susanto, president, PT Megatech Engineering. Suryo Suherman, president, Cinema 21, said: “We’re proud to be the first cinema chain in Southeast Asia to install Christie Vive Audio and are confident that it is the best audio system available today for accurate reproduction of immersive cinema audio formats.”
