New Film Association Customer Technical Exchanges


To adapt to a film market that is going global and improve cinema acoustic environment and audio system quality, New Film Association, Beijing Movie Equipment Company, and the Film Department of Advanced Communication Equipment (Beijing) Company Ltd (hereinafter referred to as ACE) organized an event of product technical exchanges at the Guang’anmen Cinema in Beijing on March 15th 2019.




As two established companies in the film industry, New Film Association and Beijing Movie Equipment Company have set higher business standards for film service providers of this generation with their perceptions of higher market demands for new technologies, products and experience based on their years of experience in film service. Since the advent of film-digital technology innovations in 2008, large numbers of superior copies have sprung out, with endless great works popping up both at home and abroad. Astounding surround sound effects, comfortable dreamlike experience, and immersive sensory stimulus, have combined to offer viewers an unprecedented audio-visual feast, sweeping across a lot of cinemas, whereas the state-owned theaters and cinemas that abound in the city couldn’t meet market demands due to their severely outdated products and bad viewing experience offered.


But as a saying goes, pressure makes motivation. Confronted with the changing film market, New Film Association and Beijing Movie Equipment Company joined hands with ACE in organizing this event, aimed at improving screening quality and customer satisfaction, winning recognition from more movie fans, and protecting brand effects of established cinemas. So let’s walk together even further in the context of new industrial circumstances and structural adjustments!



Film is a kind of art that integrates sound, light and power to deliver something wonderful. The staff of our Film Department gave an overview of various cinematic techniques that included 3D, 4D, 4K, high frame rate, laser products, streaming media, screening on demand, automatic network supervision, 5.1/7.1/11.1 and Dolby Atmos from a technical standpoint, and from the perspective of flexible operations, they analyzed business methods to adapt to market changes, such as opening large theaters and cinemas to performances and meetings, and running cinema bars, KTVs, and eSports at small ones.


New technologies and products may keep flooding in, but we have always upheld a principle of putting things to good use in the most cost-effective way (which is favorable to reducing customers’ composite operating costs) in delivering projects for our customers. Hence, our engineers elaborated on the BC speakers at the end of the product line, as they are not only the cheapest of its kind but of a superior product family and of superb quality. A session on appraising the JBL-BC 5.1-channel speaker was specially arranged at the cinema hall.
The session consists of two parts. First, single channel listening (to an integration of human sound, soundtrack, and Foley) was conducted, with the subjective assessment method used in the HIFI industry to teach customers how to identify product features and dynamic fidelity. Second, 5.1-channel examples were presented for appraisal. Specifically, we randomly chose 3 clips from 3 different films within schedule to listen, with each lasting 20 minutes, which demonstrated the professional standard of such an excellent speaker. (Note: only the 5.1 project can showcase the overall power of a cinema, with its outstanding performance to meet various strict appraisal standards that each movie fan would have, and multichannel surround products are what we used to attract audience.



ACE would like to join hands with our counterparts to make even greater contributions to the transition of China as a country that churns out films to the one that is powerful in films.
