HARMAN Aids Mongolian Cinema Project

News Image
The Mongolia Ministry of Culture, Sport and Tourism (MCST) is currently undertaking a project in conjunction with systems integrator Cinema of Sound LLC and Kinoton Korea, Inc. that will provide cinemas to citizens across Mongolia.
Cinema of Sound and Kinoton are building Standard Cinema Point theaters in Mongolia's aimags (first-level administrative subdivisions), villages and city districts.
Twenty installations have been completed to date, spanning across the country's nearly 604,000 square miles. Audio for all the installations is provided by HARMAN's JBL JRX125 dual-15-inch loudspeakers and Crown DSi 2000 amplifiers, which are designed specifically for cinema applications.
"Mongolia is a country that has vast areas of scattered settlements and sparse population, so sparse that our country's most remote citizens watch movies only on television, as there are no theaters," said Jigjidsuren Khurelbaatar, CEO of Cinema of Sound LLC.
"Thanks to our Standard Cinema Point project, which is part of the MCST's efforts to bring a richer cultural environment to Mongolians, people throughout Mongolia will be able to enjoy a true cinema experience with high-quality sound and projection."
Cinema of Sound LLC standardised on the JBL JRX125 loudspeakers and Crown DSi 2000 amplifiers for the Standard Cinema Point installations.
"By standardizing the equipment we're using, we know we can depend on a high level of audio quality and dependable day-to-day operation no matter where the theaters are located," said Chris Bae, Managing Director of Kinoton Korea, Inc.
The JRX125 incorporates features including dual 15-inch woofers with large 2.5-inch (64mm) edgewound ribbon voice coils, titanium-diaphragm compression high-frequency drivers and high-voltage crossover components.
Crown's DSi Series amplifiers are designed to meet the needs of cinema applications and feature onboard digital signal processing including crossovers, EQ filters, delay and output limiting.
Cinema of Sound and Kinoton Korea are contracted to build 50 more Standard Cinema Point theaters in the remainder of 2013, bringing the total of theaters in Mongolia to 70. Theaters are currently installed in capital city Ulaanbaatar and in locations throughout the country.
