    Pirates 5 Has Grand Premiere in Shanghai

    Last March at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, one of the highlights of the cinema industry’s largest annual trade event was a screening of Disney’s upcoming blockbuster, “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales”, the latest in the Pirates franchise. Each year, the aptly-named 4,000 seat Colosseum at Caesars Palace is transformed into the world’s largest movie theatre, a colossal joint effort between QSC, Dolby, Boston Light and Sound and the Colosseum technical crew. Disney executives were so thrilled with the outcome that they invited QSC and Dolby to Shanghai to do it again – this time for the worldwide premiere of the film in the Grand Theatre at the Shanghai Disney Resort. Like the Colosseum at Caesar’s, the Grand Theatre was not originally designed to be a movie theatre; it is normally used for theatrical stage productions. At over 1,000 seats, it’s larger than…

    Jason Bourne Premieres with QSC Sound

    QSC Headquarters, Costa Mesa, CA (August 11, 2016) - When scouting for a location for the premiere of Jason Bourne, Universal Pictures chose Las Vegas, an obvious choice since it’s the scene of the film’s climactic and chaotic car chase. But finding a venue large and grand enough to launch the film was another matter – there aren’t many movie theatres that can accommodate the thousands of celebrities and industry insiders expected to attend.  Knowing that CinemaCon, the theatrical exhibition industry’s largest trade event, is held each year at Caesars Palace and that screenings are successfully done in the Colosseum, Universal felt confident that the 4,000 seat venue could provide a fitting launch pad for the new $120 million action thriller.  The bigger challenge: the Colosseum was never built as a movie theatre.  Converting the massive room from a live performance…

    New compact Subwoofer

    At ShowEast 2015, QSC introduced the latest in its line of compact, space-saving subwoofers. The new QSC SB-2180 subwoofer is the thinnest dual 18 inch subwoofer on the market.  Each driver is loaded into its own internal chamber. An ingenious folded port design minimizes cabinet depth, yet still provides full port volume.  The port also acts as internal bracing, creating a stiffer, less resonant cabinet. All of this allows the enclosure to be at least 20% thinner than any other dual 18” subwoofer you can buy, occupying up to 40% less floor space in your theatre.  In a multi-theatre complex, that extra square footage translates into more revenue-generating seating or concession space.  And, you can stack four on a shipping pallet, significantly reducing freight costs. “Conventional thinking says that subwoofers must be large, refrigerator-sized enclosures,” says Barry…
