The Maheshwari Theatre in Bangalore, India has installed Barco Auro 11.1 sound technology. The new sound system will be unveiled at a press conference May 23. The 1,000-seat theater is the second screen in the region to upgrade its sound system to Auro 11.1; the Manasa Theatre upgraded its sound last July.
“With all the alternatives that are currently available, moviegoers demand something truly unique,” a Maheshwari Theatre spokesman, said. “We believe that sound plays a vital part in this as much as images do. That’s why we began our quest for the best sound technology available on the market.”
Following an intensive search, the theatre contacted renowned sound engineer Sails Raj at Cine Acoustics to handle the installation.
“Apart from the fact that we have a lot of faith in Barco as one of the best solution providers on the market, I was absolutely blown away by the sheer auditory impact of the solution,” the spokesman said. “This level of immersion was something I’ve never experienced before, and I’m confident that it provides Maheshwari Theatre with a unique competitive differentiator. On top of that, the technology’s full compatibility with our former sound system enabled us to upgrade seamlessly and cost-effectively. And thanks to the fully expandable design, we are now equipped with a lasting, future-proof solution.”
