LONGUEUIL, QC, April 14 /CNW Telbec/ - D-BOX Technologies Inc. (DBO.A on the TSX Venture Exchange), a leader in innovative motion technology for the entertainment industry, announced today a new agreement with existing partner, Galaxy Theatres, to equip two more movie theatres with its popular D-BOX MFX Seats bringing the total number of theatres with Galaxy to six.
Galaxy Tulare in Tulare, California and Galaxy Fandango located in the Fandango Casino in Carson City, Nevada will both have 28 seats (2 rows) of the immersive, motion technology installed before the end of April. Following this deployment, D-BOX will count on 504 motion generation systems installed in 21 commercial theatres in North America and Japan which compares to 37 systems in two theatres in North America at the same date last year.
"We continue to receive high regards from moviegoers experiencing D-BOX MFX Seats at the theatre and have seen demand for our unique technology increase steadily," said President and CEO, Claude Mc Master. "We look forward to introducing our technology to new movie theatres in different markets around the globe with the deployment of even more theatres soon to be announced."
"We are very impressed by the results we had on the D-BOX MFX Seats at our two newly equipped Washington state locations 'Galaxy Monroe & Galaxy Gig Harbor' since the opening of Clash of the Titans in 3D. Given the growing popularity of D-BOX and our commitment to providing a first-class, state-of-the-art movie experience for our customers, we anticipate upgrading additional theatres with the motion technology in the very near future," commented Rafe Cohen, President of Galaxy Theatres.
