In recent years the concept of “4D” has become increasingly popular. There’s a range of systems to choose from, starting with a transducer in the seat to sophisticated systems featuring movement, wind and water effects, etc. Here are our favourites:-
- Butt Kicker LFE (low-frequency effects) this system can be retrofitted to certain seats or pre-installed in new seats. Over 200 screens worldwide feature Butt Kicker and it requires no encoding on the DCP.
- DBOX is the pioneer of moving seats for the cinema industry, with more than 400 screens worldwide equipped.
- MX4D takes moving seats to a new high. MX4D theatre seats move in sync with the movie action and special EFX generators in the cinema allow customers to “feel” the movie’s motion, jolts, pokes, wind, water, even scents.
