ScreenX is a multi-projection technology that extends the movie from a main screen onto the sidewalls of a theatre. By using all three sides the technology offers the audience an immersive experience. ScreenX also refers to a special auditorium using the technology. CJ CGV developed ScreenX in cooperation with KAIST. The multi-projection system is patented in Korea. The system uses six projectors per wall for a total of 13 projectors. According to the company, ScreenX is projector and server agnostic, though currently the digital cinema projectors are from Christie, the servers are from Hewlett-Packard.
