California-based MediaMation has introduced SafeTSeat and is installing the new seating in TCL Chinese Theatres in Los Angeles as it plans to reopen. SafeTSeat is a plexiglass barrier between the seats allowing for separation and social distancing while attending standard and MX4D Motion EFX theatres.
The SafeTSeat is designed for safety and customer confidence as patrons attend theatres, auditoriums, stadiums or event venues. The company says SafeTSeat is one of the first protective devices designed especially for public seating. It will give patrons a feeling of more security and safety while enjoying the experience.
Using this ensures specified seats remain empty, guaranteeing social distancing, while the clear view provides the shared group and immersive experience without feeling confined TCL Chinese Theatre is currently outfitted with one of MediaMation's MX4D Motion EFX and eSports conversion theatres.
“We are planning to initiate a safety protocol for customers that are as good if not better than that of our peers,” said a TCL Chinese Theatres spokesman. “The SafeTSeat is among the key components that will help make the plan an industry standard as we await permission from the county to reopen.”
