Audio technology to premiere in NZ film [video]

Stuff.co.nz reports that cinema goers have been given a sneak sound preview at the Embassy Theatre in Wellington (new Zealand) that enhances the experience in scary movie.

Over 250 volunteers sat through six-minute Rumble sample sessions, many of whom had their heart-rate tested before and after the screening and received basic psychology testing.

California-based Rumble was initially developed for use in theme-park rides.

Creators soon discovered its potential for cinema, with the industry’s increasing demands for technical innovation and audience experience.
