As general contractor, AVITECH completed the fitting-out of the first 3D cinema in Calarasi - "Aurel Elefterescu". The project was supported by Calarasi County Council and was completed in April 2012. According to Mr. Raducu Filipescu, the President of Calarasi County Council, by performing this work there was fulfilled an older promise:” I believe I accomplished a good thing. We kept our word and from now on the people from Calarasi will be able to see 3D movies in their city, without travelling to the capital”.
By rehabilitating, fitting-out and supplying with audio-video equipments there was intended to create a multipurpose cultural hall and a space for artistic activities. After analyzing the requirements, AVITECH designed and implemented the project of modernizing the hall which has existed for over 60 years. The dedicated installed equipments are compatible with the latest cinema standards (DCI) and can be also used for theatrical performances and conferences.
Because the project’s beneficiary wanted to preserve also the original purpose as conference and performance hall, there was chosen the mounting of a retractable electric projector screen. Its size is 9,5 m x 5,5 m and can be raised during the theatrical performances, thus releasing the stage.
The most important systems integrated by AVITECH in this location were: 2D/3D video projection, surround sound, fire detection, public address and voice alarm, air conditioning for the projection room, lighting. The new technical room, having an area of 14 square meters, houses the video projector and the dedicated equipments racks.
The modernization works included: wall tiling with special materials in order to achieve acoustic treatment, terrace making and increasing the distance between the rows of seats on the ground floor, according to the actual cinema standards, special seats installing and other improvements. AVITECH renovated and refurbished the theater’s lobby where there was also installed a system of LCD displays for Digital Signage.
