MediaMation, Inc, a leading provider of 4D/5D theaters, has installed a X4D® Motion EFX theater at the new National Maritime Museum, in Busan, South Korea.
The National Maritime Museum, located on Yeong-do Island, celebrates Korea’s maritime history. The museum opens this month, ahead of the Expo 2012 Yeosu Korea, an international exposition that runs through August 12, 2012.
The museum’s attractions include a children’s museum, five permanent exhibition halls and 11, 000 items in its collection as well as MediaMation’s X4D® Motion EFX theater.
The 60 seat turnkey theater includes seats with 3d.o.f. motion and transducers, built in leg and neck ticklers, air and water blasts and atmospheric effects like wind and strobes. The newly constructed auditorium features a cutting edge screen, projection and sound system to play the stereoscopic 3D CG film, “Battle of the Abyss”, which was custom produced by Visual Science Laboratory Korea Inc (VSLK).
