These studios are meticulously designed to THX performance specifications to accurately capture every bass note, surround effect and piece of dialogue during the mixing session.

To achieve THX certification, the cinema projection booth must be accurately placed in relation to the screen for the best viewing experience.
The placement of the cinema screen is precisely calculated for every THX Certified Cinema. To ensure the best possible viewing experience, THX recommends having a 36 degree viewing angle from the farthest seat in the auditorium.
Reverberation is the presence of sound after its source has stopped – much like an echo. In a movie theater, reverberation often builds as sound reflects off surfaces such as walls, floors and ceilings.
THX Certified Cinemas are quiet. They feature massive wall structures to isolate the cinema from the outside world—creating a pristine audio sanctuary.
