D-BOX expands its footprint in Germany

August 24, 2021

D-BOX as well as ECCO Cine Supply and Service GMBH (“ECCO”) are pleased to announce the installation of 90 D-BOX haptic seats including 16 recliners, for seven screens, at five different locations in Germany. The installation should be completed by the end of September.

ECCO, who has been a great partner to D-BOX since 2014, has provided a host of innovative technology solutions to exhibitors and theater owners in Germany and Europe. They will be enhancing the entertainment experience in five different locations throughout Germany.  

  • Two screens at Cinewood Kinocenter in Waldkraiburg
  • Two screens at Lichtburg Center in Dinslaken
  • One screen at Regina Palast in Leipzig
  • One screen at Capitol Kino in Altenburg
  • One screen at CiD Cinema in Döbeln

With these immersive haptic recliners, D-BOX continues to enhance the in-theater movie experience, improving the storyline by perfectly synchronizing the action on the screen with motion control in the seats. 

"As a longstanding partner in sales, installation and technical support for D-BOX products, ECCO has an in-depth understanding of the European market, of our technology and of the advantages it brings to exhibitors and moviegoers."

Sébastien Mailhot, President and CEO of D-BOX

“Their contribution to D-BOX’s success across Germany and Europe is unrivaled.”

"The pandemic is not over yet, but those exhibitors are highly encouraged with the status of the theatrical recovery in Germany and the accrued demand for the immersive, premium cinematic experience."

Thomas Rüttgers, managing director at ECCO

“Given the big success of recent blockbusters and No time to die, the new James Bond film, being released soon, it was important for them to have those movie screens installed on time to capitalize on the long-awaited new release of a franchise that is already promised to a global success.” To date, ECCO has already installed more than 160 D-BOX screens in Germany with installations all across the country.
