Bangalore’s Manasa Theatre installs Auro 11.1

July 23, 2013

Manasa Theatre in Bangalore, India, recently installed Barco’s Auro 11.1 immersive sound platform in its UltraScreen auditorium.

“As a technology pioneer, we want to make sure that the Bangalore crowd always gets the best possible experience while watching blockbusters in our theatre,” said Janardhan Reddy, managing director at Manasa Bangalore. “So, naturally, we were very pleased with Auro 11.1. Adding a height layer and an overhead layer to the traditional surround sound layer enables studio sound mixers to move objects around in space, really create a lifelike, acoustic experience. Moreover, the system is fully compatible with our existing audio equipment and current workflows. We are very impressed with the results."
