With all the progress and advancements in visual displays, including HD 3D, LCD televisions and 3d TV's, it's refreshing to see something else considered in an effort to improve the cinematic experience. The technology I'm talking about is the D-Box seat, revealed at the 2009 CES, but only now being installed in cinemas.
The seat essentially moves with the film. Speakers are fitted to the seat, to deliver a better sound, with more clarity. In South Jordan, one of the District's Megaplex's is going to host an entire theater with the D-Box seats built in.
28 D-Box MFX seats will be included in the auditorium, which equates to four rows, and will be the very first movie theater to offer such seats.
The seats and theater are hoping to be finalised and ready in time for the opening of Walt Disney's The Prince of Persia: The Sands Of Time, with the D-Box seats being the hottest seats in the house.
I'm sure these seats will prove to be successful and this will be a stepping stone for cinemas worldwide to install similar technology, thus improving the cinematic experience for the public. Moving seats, as well as improved 3D technologies, will greatly improve the film experience and make it much more realistic and enjoyable.
