QSC Announces First QSC Certified Multiplex

Alamo Drafthouse Raleigh optimizes
movie-going experience with eleven QSC certified theatres

Costa Mesa, CA (November 27, 2018) – QSC is proud to announce
the first “QSC Certified” multiplex, Alamo Drafthouse Raleigh. QSC Certified Theatres are equipped with complete
sound systems from QSC, and meet a set of technical guidelines for equipment,
projection, acoustics, and room design, to ensure an outstanding movie-going
experience.

The
Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Raleigh, North Carolina is an eleven screen complex,
with rooms ranging in size from 47 seats to 107 seats.  All rooms feature complete QSC cinema sound
systems, using DCP Series cinema processors and DCA Series power amplifiers.  Each room features QSC 3-way bi-amplified screen channel loudspeakers, SB-7218 subwoofers, and SR Series surround loudspeakers. The
multiplex was built in a refurbished supermarket, making attention to acoustic
design critical to the overall listening experience.

The
QSC Certified Theatre Program is based on a set of guidelines intended to promote best
practices in cinema design and overall presentation quality.  QSC Certified Theatres are equipped with
complete sound systems from QSC, the leader in cinema sound, and meet strict
technical specifications. In addition to properly equipping the room with the
optimal sound system, the CTP also evaluates acoustics, sightlines, and image
quality.

“Providing
the best possible movie experience requires paying attention to many details,
beyond just installing the right sound and projection equipment,” says Mark
Mayfield, Director of Global Marketing for QSC Cinema.  “In fact, that’s usually the final
consideration.  It really begins with a
properly designed room, with interior finishes and furnishings that don’t
negatively impact the visual and aural experience.  The QSC Certified Theatre Program requires
that all of these factors are considered in evaluating the total experience.  If all the specifications are met, then we’ll
certify the room and provide a complete marketing program to help the theatre
operator communicate the fact that their theatre is the best place to
experience a movie.”

Many
theatre operators will pursue certification for a limited number of rooms
within a multiplex.  Often, these are the
premium large format (or PLF) rooms or those with special formats such as Dolby
Atmos or 3D projection.  Alamo Drafthouse
Cinemas is the first cinema operator to achieve QSC Certification for every
room in a multiplex.

For over two decades we’ve
worked to make the Alamo Drafthouse experience the best cinematic experience in
the world. Presentation standards are one of the most important and yet most
frequently overlooked aspects of the theatergoing experience,” says Tim League,
Alamo Drafthouse founder/CEO. “The QSC system gives us the ability to
consistently achieve and maintain our high brand standard for audio quality at
Raleigh and across our circuit. We pursued QSC Certification in every theatre
in the Raleigh multiplex because QSC provides a complete sound solution, along
with a demonstrated history of quality, performance, and reliability.”
