Audio Visuelt Centrum A/S recently partnered with Septon and Harman Professional Solutions to outfit Palads Teatret’s newest flagship theatre with a premium cinema audio solution by JBL Professional.
With a legacy extending back to 1917, Palads Teatret’s current Frederikshavn location originally opened in 1942 as a single floor facility. Cinema directors Kris Søgaard Pedersen and Sofia Rafn Abildgaard recently unveiled their ambitious redesign for Palads Teatret that includes four renovated theatre rooms.
The newly constructed theatres required immersive audio systems that complement the décor and enhance the overall movie experience for guests. To accomplish these requirements, Pedersen and Abildgaard turned to top cinema integrator AVC and distributor Septon to outfit the theatre rooms with comprehensive Dolby Atmos and Dolby 7.1 cinema audio solutions, powered by JBL Professional loudspeakers and Crown amplifiers.
"We set out to build the best possible cinema we could imagine,” said Pedersen. “We thought about how we could optimise everything for the best customer experience. We had the highest possible requirements for the sound. We had considered choosing a slightly cheaper solution, but when it came down to it, we couldn't resist taking the best of the best. We have certainly not regretted that, as a sharp and all-encompassing sound image is so important for an immersive film experience. I had seen films with Dolby Atmos before, and after seeing a few films here in the cinema, I am a true believer.”
