D-Box Technologies has announced the upcoming installation of a first movie theatre equipped with 13 D-Box MFX seats with Warner Mycal Corporation one of the largest operators of commercial theatres in Japan. This transaction marks the first sale of D-Box motion systems for commercial theatre applications outside of North America. “We are very pleased of teaming up with Warner Mycal in this first commercial theatre venture outside of North-America ” says Claude Mc Master president and CEO of D-Box Technologies. “The Japanese market is huge and their consumers are usually very savvy of new and exciting technologies. In addition a presence in Japan will provide for a great technological showcase in a market that offers great long term potential. As we intend over the next few quarters to accelerate the deployment of our motion systems for commercial application in North-America we see in this Asian venture an excellent opportunity to test new markets as we gradually become a true international standard.’’ “It is with great pleasure that we will proceed with the first commercial deployment of D-Box motion systems for the Japanese Cinema Market as we intend to deploy 13 such systems at Warner Mycal Cinemas Ohdaka as part of a new state-of-the-art 10 screen 1923-seats multiplex which will open next March 23 in Nagoya ” says Millard L. Ochs president and representative director of Warner Mycal Corporation.  ‘’More specifically we intend to equip theatre #10 with RealD digital 3D system and with D-Box MFX seats allowing our customers to experiment a new and completely immersive cinema experience.” D-Box ww.d-box.com
