At the Arena Cinemas Sihlcity cinema in Zurich, the first LED cinema screen in Europe was created by Samsung.
Arena Cinemas Sihlcity is the third cinema hall in the world that has been equipped with LED technology. Until now, movies on the Samsung screen could be seen at the Lotte Cinema World Tower in Seoul, and from October at the Paragon Cineplex Theater in Bangkok.
On a screen with dimensions of 10.24 x 5.4 meters, the image is displayed in 4K resolution (4096 x 2160 pixels). The display image is derived from High Dynamic Range (HDR) technology, which guarantees better image quality. The HDR function produces color depth and high contrast even in very bright or dark scenes. The vast area of the Samsung screen is illuminated by nearly 9 million LEDs. LED technology offers a 10 times higher brightness level compared to conventional solutions, achieving a brightness of 500 nit.
The cinema auditorium in the new room can also enjoy better sound quality. All thanks to the use of technology created in cooperation with the Samsung audio laboratory with HARMAN Professional Solutions.
