D-Box designs, manufactures and markets a motion generation system at the
cutting edge of technology, targeted primarily at the entertainment industry
and, more particularly, the home theatre, movie theatre and video game
sectors. The motion generation system, consisting of patented technologies, is
based on the creation of motion codes (the D-BOX MOTION CODE(TM)), permitting
the addition of the dimension of movement to those of sound and image. D-Box
offers a full sensory experience, thanks to the motion generation technology
which responds to the D-Box motion codes, which are synchronized with the
on-screen action. The result of the activation of D-Box's motion generation
system is synchronization between movements felt by the viewer in his
armchair, and action on the screen showing a film or video game. D-Box markets
its products primarily in North America, as well as in more than 15 countries
around the world. Its technology is recognized by many participants in the
D-BOX(R) and D-BOX MOTION CODE(TM) are registered trademarks.
