Golden Village Multiplex is proud to announce that it is the first cinema operator in Singapore to support the revolutionary 3D immersive sound technology, Auro 11.1 by Barco. Auro 11.1 brings sound from all around and above to create the most impactful experience. Golden Village Suntec City is the first cinema in Singapore to deploy Auro 11.1 with the debut of Jack Neo’s latest Chinese New Year comedy/ drama, “Long, Long Time Ago”, which was natively mixed in the new immersive technology at Galaxy Studios Belgium.
Auro 11.1 is touted as the most realistic 3D sound experience currently available in the market. Unlike other technologies where speakers are placed only on a horizontal plane and directly above, the Auro 11.1 by Barco’s system uses a sound reproduction speaker layout based on three axes (x=width, y=depth, z=height) and three vertical layers (surround, height, top), which provides the most natural true-to-life reproduction of sound. Thanks to its unique mezzanine layer located between the standard surround and overhead speakers, Auro 11.1 by Barco provides a much better spread of sound in the vertical axis which delivers a natural representation of 3D sound all around the listener using fewer channels than other immersive sound systems.
The benefits of using Auro 11.1 have encouraged Hollywood producers and others from around the world to release more than 125 films that leveraged on the new technology. Jeffrey Katzenberg, the CEO of DreamWorks Animation, has praised Auro 11.1 for offering the best cinematic experience to movie patrons. DreamWorks Animation’s latest film, Kung Fu Panda 3, is currently playing in theatres in Auro 11.1 by Barco.
