Calcutta, India (February 1, 2006)–Calcutta’s eastern suburb of Udayan is home Calcutta Metropolitan’s Hiland Park, a massive development of nine residential towers and an equally massive multiplex theater, Fame Kolkata, which sports a fully digital surround sound system from Costa Mesa, CA-based QSC Audio.
Each of the cinemas’ four auditoriums house three QSC SC-422 high-power, two-way bi-amp Screen Channel systems, featuring a pair of 15-inch LF drivers and a large-format 3-inch titanium diaphragm HF driver. The Screen Channel loudspeakers are augmented by a pair of SB-5218 subwoofers, an 800-Watt model with dual 18-inch drivers. A total of twenty-four QSC amplifiers drive the four auditoriums.
“With the launch of Fame Kolkata, we’re giving cinema lovers a whole new viewing experience,” remarked Shringar Cinemas’ managing director Shravan Shroff, who cited the auditoriums’ audio systems as one of the most important aspects of the sensory experience.
