December 11, 2013
Kortrijk, Belgium, 11 December 2013 –With the innovative Auro 11.1 audio platform and our support for the adoption of an open standard for immersive sound, digital cinema pioneer Barco has managed to bring “immersive cinema” to a whole new level. In the APAC region alone, more than fifty screens have been equipped with the three-layer sound technology. In the next twelve months, five additional Asian based mixing studios are upgrading their equipment to the "Auro-3D® Studio System" and ten Asian feature films, including No. 1, Race Gurram, Vishwaroopam 2, and Kochadiyaan, will be released in Auro 11.1 by Barco. In addition, Barco partner MBS Studios in Hong Kong and H. Brother in China will be releasing a strong slate of regional titles, further increasing the solution’s impact on the Asian cinema industry.
