Partner Spotlight: Moovia Makes Haptics Meet High Class

November 10, 2022

In the last two years, home theaters have grown tremendously in popularity. More and more people are looking to bring the movie theater experience home and are turning to companies such as Moovia to assist them in the process—ensuring that their home theater experience is just as good as the real thing.

To reflect on this recent boom in popularity and to celebrate our lasting partnership, we recently caught up with Krisztian Nagy, chief operation officer from Moovia. Keep reading to see what he had to say!

How did the Moovia & D-BOX partnership first come about?

It all began in 2014 when we started to integrate D-BOX in some individual home cinema seating orders in Germany. Our customers were delighted by the results!

We were convinced that combining the benefits of Moovia and D-BOX might spice up the home movie experience, so we started offering this opportunity for new customers. We realized that this cooperation would provide movie lovers with a special and amazing experience.

Word of the experience spread quickly, so now D-BOX integration is a basic part of all our offers!

What separates the D-BOX & Moovia experience from others available on the market?

It’s simple: when technology and comfort meet, it’s just like when you find the last, missing piece of a puzzle. There are some features that D-BOX has that perfectly complement the Moovia furniture, and together we can bring something unique to our customers.

What pain point was it that had you originally looking to enhance the home theater experience for your customers?

At the time, Moovia had just started to develop and produce luxury products. Our plans were supported by a big marketing campaign that resulted in the increasing number of international orders.

However, we still felt that something was missing and that we needed to take our offerings one step further in order to stand out from the crowd. As a result, we left the well-known products and methods behind—we wanted to make a difference, so we had to rise above the average and excel at it.

What convinced you that D-BOX was the tool to help bring you above the rest?

Home theater owners want high-quality, luxury products in their homes, and they want them to come with added features—just like the high fidelity haptic technology provided by D-BOX.

These big kinds of projects require at least two or more items of furniture for home theater owners to have a full setup, and the numbers have proven that we made the right choice when we decided to collaborate with D-BOX!

What was your first impression of D-BOX’s haptic feedback?

I have no words to describe it! I was part of the crew, and I could feel every little detail of the story, just as I would have if I was one of the actors. I thought that this kind of cutting-edge technology was the future!

How do you feel D-BOX adds immersion to the home entertainment experience, and what feedback (if any) have you ever gotten from customers?

It totally completes the experience. You can actually feel what is happening, you become part of the movie, you are present, you go with the flow, etc. You’ll never be able to watch a film again without it!

Back then, and now, our customers are fully satisfied with the quality that Moovia brings to theater seating. This quality makes the experience with D-BOX even more special!

What about the D-BOX experience do you like most?

One of my first D-BOX adventures is my favourite. When I watched the movie Baby Driver, I can say that my jaw dropped. Do you know the escape scene in the red Subaru? It was like, ‘wow, I’m there, I am sitting right there in the car praying to not let the police catch us!” It was just so real!

Why do you think the D-BOX & Moovia partnership has been so successful?

The secret lies in the fact that we bring the highest qualities together.

Both companies are at the top of their fields, so the best way to offer something new to customers that they haven’t experienced before is to combine those skills and expertise together—to bring something new and unique to the table.

When it comes to the future of home entertainment, how big of a role does Moovia think haptics will play in the future?

With the pace of our lives that keeps becoming fast and faster, and as time goes by, the need for automated systems that can help us relax drastically increases. These features can help us to slow down for a while and to find some peace.

On the other hand, some people prefer not only to be viewers, but to be active participants of their own recreation and relaxation. To see, feel and enjoy everything like it’s real—even if it’s just a movie. How else could this be possible without D-BOX haptics?

Thanks to D-BOX’s haptic technology, you can enjoy the most immersive and revolutionized at-home experience. The movements, vibrations and textures delivered by the haptic actuators seamlessly enhance your movies as they’re perfectly synchronized with what's happening on the screen. These effects amplify emotions and bring your home movie experience to life!

To the future of haptic home entertainment

Revolutionizing the future of home entertainment isn’t a job that can be done alone, which is why D-BOX works with a large network of partners in over 40 countries around the world. By continuing to combine the specialties of our key partners like Moovia with our decades of experience creating high-fidelity haptic experiences, there’s no telling how far we can go—and how far we can entertain customers for years to come.
