New Vue Cinema Opens with the Full Suite of Sony Technologies Including Sony Digital Cinema 4K

Vue Cinemas, Gateshead, a brand new state of the art cinema multiplex at the Metro Centre has installed an extensive suite of Sony technologies.
It is the first of Vue’s cinemas to use Sony’s SRX-R515P 4K digital cinema projectors, delivering the best pictures available in cinema today through exceptionally high contrast ratios and 4K ultra high definition resolution. Two projectors are also equipped with the unique Sony 3D solution, allowing cinema-goers to enjoy the ultimate viewing experience by delivering easy on the eye 3D.

Sony’s Entertainment Access technology is installed in every auditorium, making it the first cinema in the UK to install a wireless enhanced audio and audio description system for the hard of hearing and visually impaired.
A number of Sony large format digital signage displays have been positioned throughout the multiplex providing digital menu boards, film times and up to the minute seat availability.
And finally, Sony IP CCTV Security systems consisting of around 40 cameras located across the complex including infra-red cameras in all auditoriums plus Sony Real Shot Manager Video Security management system have been installed. The system is not only used for traditional purposes  but also allows for a greater feeling of comfort and security.  In-auditorium infra-red cameras relay  images that can be clearly seen in the foyer at all times, discouraging  film theft and disruptive incidents in screen. 

Roland Jones, Technical Services Director of Vue Cinemas commented: “We are truly excited to be bringing the full Sony offering to our customers. We always aim to go the extra mile and provide our customers with the best possible cinema experience in a safe and secure environment and having Sony equipment installed throughout the complex means we are taking it to a whole new level.”
David McIntosh, Director, Sony Europe, commented: “Sony is delighted to partner with Vue Cinemas. The new Vue Cineplex at Gateshead is the first cinema in the UK to install our wireless technology, making it one of the most high-tech cinemas around today. Cinema-goers can enjoy the full Sony suite of technologies from the minute they walk into the cinema foyer through to the auditorium, where they can get the best possible viewing experience.”
