ScreenX is the world's first multi-projection theatre technology that allows a 270-degree panoramic movie watching experience. ScreenX allows the audience to go beyond the frame of the traditional movie screen, utilizing a proprietary system to expand the center screen image to the side walls, surrounding audiences with imagery and providing a sense of being inside the movie.
"We are thrilled to be expanding our global reach with Genesis Cinemas in bringing ScreenX into Nigeria for the very first time with six locations across a brand new market," said JongRyul Kim, CEO of CJ 4DPLEX. "The demand and excitement for our next-generation movie-watching format from audiences have been heard and we look forward to growing and collaborating with innovative partners like Genesis Cinemas in bringing more opportunities to tell great stories around the world in ScreenX."
"We are very excited to be partnering with ScreenX on our expansion journey. It is certainly one of the leading innovative additions that we are keen to have in all our multiplexes. We look forward to introducing ScreenX to West and Central African markets and have our audiences take on this incredible new experience," said Dr. Nnaeto Orazulike, Founder and CEO of Genesis Group.
ScreenX is the world's first multi-projection system used within a theatre setting. It was created in 2012 by CJ CGV, part of South Korean conglomerate CJ Group, as one of the "next cinema formats" along with 4DX, the multisensory cinema technology with motion and environmental effects. ScreenX allows moviegoers to go beyond the frame of the movie screen by expanding the center image of feature films and pre-show advertising to create an immersive, panoramic, 270-degree format that projects onto three theatre walls. To date, ScreenX has been installed in 221 screens around the world. ScreenX was recognized as the "Innovator of the Year" at ShowEast 2018. For more information, please visit www.screenx.co.kr
