PRIVATE SCREENING


Torsten Steinbrecher of Qualtron dives into the exclusive world of private cinema and looks at some of the industry’s most dynamic innovations being brought to a superyacht near you!

Among the most coveted of onboard luxuries is the bespoke Private Cinema. Specifically designed and built for each project, the private cinema is a labour of love, taking months or years in planning and development. Owners want the very best. They imagine a 360-degree sensory experience, being right there in the thick of the action. So, we work very closely with interior designers, integrators, shipyards and owners to achieve the owner’s vision.

worked with textiles for three-dimensional lighting design. ETTLIN LUX® from ETTLIN AG can be used to create amazing immersive lighting experiences. These panels are acoustically transparent and can be designed for static or moving displays to enhance your viewing pleasure. Recently featured at the Milan fashion show, ETTLIN LUX® brings catwalk glamour to the marine environment.


For the ultimate sound experience, acoustic planners opt for a 3D surround sound solution. Large numbers of loudspeakers and sub-woofers are carefully placed around the room. In addition, a hybrid system of three audio formats – Aura 3D, Dolby


FOR SOME YACHT OWNERS, THE THRILL OF IMMERSIVE AV IS NOT ENOUGH. THEY YEARN TO REALLY FEEL THE ACTION LITERALLY BY THE SEAT OF THEIR PANTS. THE D-BOX ARMCHAIR SYSTEM PUTS THE VIEWER RIGHT THERE, IN THE HEAT OF THE ACTION


Private cinema onboard presents enormous challenges to designers and AV experts. Firstly, the room must be completely free of any noise or vibration, which means sealing off the space from the hull. This is achieved by spring mounting the room within the yacht interior and placing scatter panels behind wall coverings to absorb and mute noise and vibration. This in turn ensures that sound from the loudspeakers and sub-woofers is perfectly reproduced.


Acoustic space planning extends to room contents, including tables, soft furnishings, artwork and wall panels. We work closely with designers and outfitters to select the best acoustically transparent materials in keeping with the ambience of the overall design. For example, leather with micro perforations can be used on walls to great effect. Snake and antelope leather are popular choices as they retain their shape. We have recently


Atmos and DTS:X – create a sensational three-dimensional sound experience. Never has the on-screen action been so authentically backed up. While Blu-ray movies featuring Aura 3D, Dolby Atmos and DTS:X are available, not all discs feature all three audio formats. Anyone investing heavily in a private cinema will expect optimal performance. That’s why we recommend the Trinnov Altitude32, which remains, since 2014, the unchallenged reference processor for immersive home theatre systems.


Clients are also very discerning when it comes to moving-image quality, with many asking for 4K resolution. This is an ultra-high resolution video format of 4096 x 2160 pixels and equates to the standard used in most commercial cinemas today. That said, the picture quality of 2K with 1980 x 1080 pixels is almost indistinguishable from the 4K format.
