x Cinema Studio EX

A surround sound mode that can be regarded
as the compilation of Digital Cinema Sound
technology, delivers the sound of a dubbing
theater using three technologies: “Virtual
Multi Dimensions,” “Screen Depth Matching,”
and “Cinema Studio Reverberation.”
“Virtual Multi Dimensions,” the virtual
speaker technology, creates a virtual multi-
surround environment with actual speakers up
to 7.1channels, and brings the surround sound
experience of a theater with the latest facilities
into your home.
“Screen Depth Matching” reproduces treble
attenuation, fullness, and depth of sound
usually created in a theater using sound
emission from behind the screen. This is then
added to the front and center channels.
“Cinema Studio Reverberation” reproduces
the sound characteristics of state-of-the-art
dubbing theaters and recording studios,
including Sony Pictures Entertainment’s
dubbing studios. There are three modes, A/B/
C, available according to the studio type.
