Wave Cinemas plans on expansion, upgrades technology to enhance viewing experience

MUMBAI: The multiplex arm of Wave Infratech - Wave Cinemas, will expand its operations in North India by increasing its multiplex seats by 36 per cent to 12,411 seats from existing 9,111 seats in the next six months.

Wave Cinemas have eight operational theatres consisting of 32 Screens with seating capacity of 9,111 seats. In next three to six months time, the multiplex operator will open multiplexes in Jammu, Merut, Ghaziabad and Rudrapur.

Jammu and Merut will have three screens each; while Ghaziabad and Rudrapur will have four screens each consisting of overall addition of 3,300 seats in the next six months.

Wave Cinemas is a pioneer in adoption of international standards of equipment which has changed the way the nation watches movies. Traditional to Wave Cinemas is the world-class digital sound, audio and projection systems, with seating ergonomically designed comfortably wider, having more leg-room than the present industry standards.

To offer modern and cutting edge viewing experience to its patrons, Wave Cinemas is also installing 4K projectors in its cinemas.

Most cinemas nowadays use digital projection technology-2K digital projectors that provide an image with a resolution of 2048 x 1080 or 2.2 million pixels. However, 4K digital projection doubles those dimensions to 4096 x 2160. This equals 8.8 million pixels, exactly four times the count of 2K projection.

Barco 4K projectors use the 1.38" DLP Cinema chip from Texas instruments which can project over 35 trillion Academy accurate colors and delivers a greater than 2500:1 contrast ratio.
These top of the line projectors guarantee razor-sharp images combined with consistent uniformity, rich contrast and vibrant, accurate colors.

Wave Cinemas‘ corporate head Yogesh Raizada said, "We have ensured that the best technology and international standard equipment is installed in our cinemas to make sure viewers are provided with an ultimate movie viewing experience. Bringing 4K & HFR projection technology at our multiplexes will offer the best visual quality available, a much more dynamic, engaging and immersive entertainment experience."

These 4K projectors have been installed at Noida, Raja Garden-Delhi and Lucknow multiplexes.
