CJ 4DPLEX won a Silver Award for its “4DX with ScreenX” concept at the 2018 Edison Awards ceremony in New York City. Honoring state-of-the-art products and innovation around the world, the Edison Awards recognized 4DX with ScreenX in the Media and Visual Communication–Entertainment category.

The other two candidates for the award were Fusion by GoPro and Nvidia ShieldTv by Nvidia.

4DX with ScreenX blends the motion-seating and environmental effects of 4DX, synchronized with the onscreen action, with the panoramic, 270-degree ScreenX format that projects onto three theatre walls.

“It is an honor to have received the Silver Award, and testament to our commitment to developing unique technologies to immerse people around the world into the movies. We are very proud of 4DX with ScreenX and look forward to bringing it to our cinema partners around the world in the years to come,” said CJ 4DPLEX CEO Byung-Hwan Choi.

Edison Award finalists are chosen by 3,000 of the world's top senior business executives, academics and innovation professionals. CJ 4DPLEX also won the Silver Edison Award in 2015 for 4DX.
