WHAT IS THX CERTIFIED SCREEN PLACEMENT?

To ensure the best possible viewing and listening experience, THX recommends having a well-designed room with an impressive screen size and a 36 degree viewing angle from the farthest seat in the auditorium. A larger screen allows for a wider placement of left and right audio channels, enhancing room acoustics and creating a more accurate audio experience.

Prior to construction, THX advises cinema designers and architects to accommodate for the 36 degree horizontal viewing angle, which provides a broad field of view as well as a wide listening space. THX also provides guidance to partners to make sure that every seat has an unobstructed view with clear sight lines.
