LAS VEGAS, Nevada â€“ Continuing the successful relationship between Marcus TheatresÂ® and Harman cinema products, the Chicago suburb of Orland Park, Illinois recently celebrated the opening of a new 70-foot-wide UltraScreenÂ® at the Orland Park Cinema. The Orland Park UltraScreen theater seats 400 and is Marcus Theatresâ€™ 12th UltraScreen to date.
Supporting the picture displayed on the large screen at Orland Park is a state-of-the-art audio system, comprised of JBL ScreenArrayÂ® and AE Series loudspeakers and Crown Audioâ€™s Digital B-Chain. Located behind the screen are three JBL ScreenArray 4632 3-way loudspeakers for screen channels, along with six 4642A subwoofers. Additionally, a total of eight AC2212/95 compact 2-way loudspeakers are mounted on the side walls (four per side), with an AM4315/95 3-way loudspeaker in each rear corner. The system is powered by Crown CTs amplifiers, loaded with DBC network digital audio modules.
â€œThe system at the Orland Park UltraScreen has worked out great since opening in December 2008,â€? said Mark Collins, Director of Projection Technology, Marcus Theatres. â€œWe have incorporated JBL and Crown components for similarly designed systems at other UltraScreen locations, and it has proven to be a successful model to follow. That said, as Harman products evolve, so will our systems, as exemplified by a new UltraScreen at the North Shore cinema in Wisconsin, which will include JBLâ€™s new ScreenArray 4732 loudspeakers and Crown I-Tech HD amplifiers. We look forward to hearing the new system when the theater opens in mid-May.â€?
â€œThe new UltraScreen at Orland Park not only exemplifies the outstanding performance of the Digital B-Chain technology, but also the ability of JBL loudspeakers across different product categories to work optimally together, in this case the ScreenArray and AE Series loudspeakers,â€? said Chuck Goodsell, Director of Cinema Marketing, JBL Professional.
