6-D cinema coming to a theatre near you

Slovenian company Kolosej has announced plans to roll out X6D, a 3D digital cinema system complete with motion, special effects and viewer interaction.

X6D is a joint venture led by Kolosej, with Edwards Technologies Inc of the US providing the large format stereoscopic digital projection system, and Cinema Park Network (EU) offering the first ever Smart Moving Seats.

The seats feature dual motion capacity, built-in special effects - such as a scent system, ticklers, wind and rain - and a cordless interactive control. The latter allows each viewer to influence the course of the film and take part in a range of interactive games.

Also featured are a state of the art lighting system programmed individually for each show, a multi-channel sound system, and a combination of digitally controlled cranes which permits the reformation of the theatre as part of the experience.

The first X6D locations are scheduled to open in Europe before the end of 2005, with the content catering for four main markets. These include edutainment presentations in the mornings for school children; large format movies for families and the younger generation in the afternoon; digital versions of movie blockbusters during the evenings, and unique multi-sensory musical cinema experiences for late night visitors.

Kolosej - a division of the Ljublijana-based KD Holding Financial Company, itself part of the KD Group - plans to have 10 X6D cinemas in operation by the end of next year.
