Technology: Sathyam Cinemas strives to be at the forefront of media technology and endeavours to bring new entertainment technology to customers first. It was the first exhibitor in India to introduce 2K digital projection technology with its brand RDX and the first to convert 100% of its screens to digital. It went one step further and introduced digital 3D in RDX and continues to push the boundaries of entertainment technology. Sathyam has yet again pushed the boundaries by becoming the 1st cinema theatre in the country to have 4K compatible projection technology.
Dolby Atmos – SPI Cinemas is the first in the country to have a screen installed with Dolby Atmos – a new audio platform that revolutionizes the experience of sound in entertainment. It allows sound designers and mixers a new level of creative control and ensures that audiences will experience the full impact of the sound mix, regardless of theatre configuration. This technology gives filmmakers greater control over the definition and placement of sounds and is designed to help them unleash the full depth and power of their creative visions.
Auro 3D – SPI Cinemas is the first exhibitor in Asia to install the Auro-3D sound system at the city’s leading multiplex, Sathyam Cinemas. Barco’s 3D sound format is designed with three layers of sound (surround, height and overhead) rather than the singular layer offered by traditional surround sound. Adding more than just speakers overhead, its three layers of sound come from all around and above the listener, transforming conventional cinema audio into a fully immersive 3D sound experience.
