Founded in 1991 and located in Los Angeles California, the multi award-winning company has contributed its unique, next-generation technologies and formidable expertise and experience to a string of high-profile projects, motion theaters, and exhibits.
One of MediaMation’s passions and expertise has been motion simulator theaters. Beginning with their early work with simulator manufacturer McFadden Systems, and continuing with virtually all of the various manufacturers and simulator companies, MediaMation has developed not only multiple hardware and software interfaces, but motion profile programming, design, and development expertise and is sought after as a supplier of both hardware and software. Not being content with the offerings available, MediaMation began work in 2005 on its own line of 4D seats. Its first offering, the Invader seat, was very well received and prompted continuing development. The culmination of this experience and hard work is the current line of X4D® Motion EFX Attraction and Cinema seats. Unique in the industry, these seats are the first to deliver the “holy grail” of motion simulators with a fully functioning, air driven, analog motion simulator combined with “4D” special effects. Coupled with their award winning ShowFlow® control and HD video server system, the X4D® Motion EFX attraction and Cinema Seat series are becoming the standard for 4D/5D theaters and cinemas worldwide.
Since its inception, co-founders, Alison Jamele, President/CEO, and Vice President/CTO, Daniel Jamele, have recruited some of the best tech and engineering talent in the industry. Prior to launching MediaMation, Alison Jamele, began her career in the music and television entertainment industries, working on prominent network shows for many years making the natural progression into themed entertainment to spearhead some of MediaMation’s most prestigious projects. Dan Jamele, who was a successful recording engineer prior to launching MediaMation, recognized the possibilities of applying MIDI-based (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) technology to amusement industry show control problems. With his technical know-how and Alison’s business savvy, they have built the company’s sterling reputation on designing and implementing cost-effective, user-friendly and highly flexible solutions for creative and technological challenges encountered in producing rides, exhibits, interactive fountain displays, motion simulator theater attractions, and now 4D motion EFX seats and theaters for cinemas worldwide.
