The Sphera cinema at Les 7 Batignolles will feature a 15-metre wide wall-to-wall screen and over 330 premium seats. A Sony Digital Cinema 4K Laser SRX-R815DS dual-stack projection system achieving a contrast of 10,000:1 will be used for EclairColor HDR feature presentations. LED strip lighting hidden behind acoustic panels will allow the images projected on the screen to be extended to the side walls of the auditorium for any preshow, Live event, concert or e-Sports session. Finally, the sound system will be powered with Dolby Atmos technology boosted by Line Array type front speakers and the Thor subwoofer.  

“The first Sphera auditorium at Village Cinemas has proven to be hugely popular among Athenians. Now it’s the Parisians’ turn to discover our new premium cinema concept,” explains Virgile Fridemann, CinemaNext account manager and Director of the Bordeaux agency. “Sphera represents a key stage in the deployment of our EclairColor HDR solution, available to all exhibitors. We are delighted to work with the teams at Les 7 Batignolles on this bold project, which marks our first cinema entirely equipped with the latest laser phosphor projectors from two of our partners: Barco and Sony Digital Cinema 4K."
