Concept, Design & Installation
Project Scope: LADB needed a DCI 7.1 channel screening room to do internal quality control and client review of Digital Cinema Packages they create and distribute for limited releases. LADB had extremely limited physical space in their Burbank plant to add a screening room.
Integration: The challenge was to design, build and install a screening room in a tight space with a very compressed schedule and limited budget.
The interior of the screening room is approximately 12 feet long with a 9ft ceiling and was converted from general office space. The Digital Cinema projector selected was designed to work in a much larger theater so careful consideration of screen brightness, optics and wall treatments was necessary to ensure the picture would meet DCI specifications.
AID Inc. designed the acoustics and layout of the screening room, coordinated the build out with the General Contractor, and supplied and installed all the audio and projection components.
