The planned Atmos screens will be installed across the UK, Central, Eastern Europe (CEE) and Israel.
“The collaboration with Cineworld is an important example of the exciting momentum we are seeing with Dolby Atmos in Europe and beyond” declared Andreas Spechtler, President Dolby International. “To date, Dolby Atmos has been installed or committed in over 600 screens across EMEA and more than 1800 globally. This is good news for cinema-goers in the UK, CEE and Israel, who will experience the full impact of the director’s work”.
The Cineworld / Cinema City group are one of Europe’s biggest cinema operators, running 218 sites with 2,011 screens. As part of the planned collaboration, Dolby says it will install up to 100 Dolby servers and audio processors across Europe.
Ilan Schor, VP Technical of Cineworld Group said, “We are very happy to announce the installation of the Dolby Atmos system in several cinemas. We have no doubt that our audience will enjoy the advanced sound. Our group has been cooperating with Dolby for many years already and we are happy with the opportunity to extend the cooperation to the immersive sound, and looking forward to many more years of fruitful cooperation.”
To date, more than 1,800 screens worldwide have been installed or committed to be equipped with Dolby Atmos and more than 465 Dolby Atmos titles have been announced globally.
