IMMERSIVE CINEMA SURROUND SOUND MOUNTING INSTALLATION – StarGrid™
In November, the Rangos Omnimax Theater will be replaced by the Rangos Giant Cinema, a brand new, state-of-the-art theater.
The upgrade will offer 4K digital projection (the Omnimax Theater was only capable of traditional film projection, increasingly becoming a rarity) and Dolby Atmos surround sound; no area theater boasts the latter technology, an advanced system that adds overhead speakers to the traditional surround-sound setup.
As with the vast majority of Dolby Atmos surround sound theatres, Adaptive Technologies Group’s StarGrid mounting system was selected for the installation.
Our Cinema sales and engineering department works closely with planners on developing the StarGrid™ Immersive Audio Mounting System that will accommodate each unique installation.
StarGrid is comprised of load-rated and lockable channels, brackets, fittings, tubing and specialty rigging hardware that enable us to create a custom grid design unique to each auditorium. We provide pan-&- tilt mounts for ceiling and wall speakers, plus a variety of U-Brackets so you may specify any surround speaker you wish.
StarGrid is equipped with sound isolation brackets and components that prevent sound from transmitting into other auditoriums. Other features such as wire management, safety cables and redundant safety back-ups are included with every StarGrid design.
Perhaps the most important feature of the StarGrid system is the detailed assembly and installation manual that ships with each kit. This manual provides the installer with a dimensional “Start Here” approach and documents all of the assemblies into one very easy to understand installation guide. This is what makes installing ceiling speakers so predictable.
