SHOWCASE CINEMA DE LUX
Located in Southampton's Westquay shopping centre, the Showcase Cinema de Luxe is the UK's first movie theatre to have laser projection and Dolby Atmos in every screen. It is the first of its kind in the south and will boast 10 3D screens forming a key part of the new £70million city centre development, which will also include 20 new restaurants and an exceptional new piazza for the city.
The complex system, completed in Spring 2017, compromises of a mixture of hardwired and plug and play solutions. Each auditorium has an individual control panel with an additional panel for the lighting ballasts. The auditorium lights are linked directly to the projector to prompt the correct lighting scene for guest exit and entry, advertisements and show time. An additional feature has also been added to activate/deactivate all lighting at the complex from a single control switch.
The Head End PC has been set up to control the emergency lighting with custom schedules for the external lighting. We have also interfaced with high powered dimmer packs to control the halogen lights within the bar areas.
