With a seating capacity for 1 050 people CineMec XL has a 20-meter by 8.10-meter silver screen and two Christie digital projectors and has established itself as one of the leading digital 3D cinemas in Holland. It is also proving to be an important venue for hosting key conferences for national corporations — offering facilities ranging from live satellite transmissions in high definition format on the big screen to infinite digital sound and image potential for audio-visual presentations.  Part of the International Cinema Technology Association seminar took place there last summer. The facility has a sound system that complements the big screen. Dutch-based specialists FTT Filmtronics based their audio specification around a matched system from QSC Audio using no fewer than 44 loudspeakers. This includes a combination of their SR-46 4 x 6.5-inch two-way surround loud speakers SB-7218 dual 18-inch subwoofer and SC-444 four-way screen channel speakers.  These loudspeakers are powered by ten QSC DCA2422 and four QSC DCA1222 two-channel digital cinema amplifiers and are controlled through an advanced DCM30 processor. The DCM30 processor provides signal processing and monitor functions in a single integrated system optimizing loudspeaker performance and covering cinema systems ranging from three to five screen channels 5.1 and 7.1 systems.  The DCMs are also compatible with all cinema processor formats including Dolby Digital Surround-EX and DTS-ES. Thomas Ruettgers general manager of FTT’s head office Film Ton Technik in Germany says “There are quite a number of special features that have to be taken into account when implementing such an extraordinary project.  QSC products are perfectly designed to meet all these special requirements which is why we decided to install their audio systems at CineMec in Ede.” QSC Audio
