‘Wir waren Könige’ first German movie mixed in the Auro 11.1 immersive sound format
Posted on Thursday, April 10, 2014
 Kortrijk, Belgium, 10 April 2014 – Global digital cinema leader Barco is pleased to announce that ‘Wir waren Könige’ is the first German movie mixed in the Auro 11.1 immersive cinema sound format. Thanks to the rich natural sound produced by Auro 11.1, moviegoers will be fully immersed in the suspense of this movie thriller. An independent feature film production co-produced by ZDF and ARTE, ‘Wir waren Könige’ will be released in Germany in Summer 2014.
“We are happy that we can add this German movie to our list of 20 feature films that are already confirmed to be mixed and released in our immersive cinema sound format during 2014,” comments Brian Claypool, Senior Director of Strategic Business Development at Barco. “What’s more, more than 25 postproduction studios around the world have already installed the Auro-3D® Studio System – and we’re now working with various postproduction houses in Germany to install the system in their facilities. Gaining momentum with exhibitors at Kino 2014 in Baden-Baden, moviegoers will soon be able to enjoy more German movies mixed in truly natural cinema sound.”

Creating truly natural sound
André Bendocchi-Alves, Supervising Sound Editor and Re-recording Mixer for ‘Wir waren Könige’, considers Auro 11.1 to be a fantastic tool for creating a truly natural and immersive cinema sound experience: "After 30 years in cinema sound, I can finally hear what I always thought it should sound like.”

‘Wir waren Könige’
Written and directed by Philipp Leinemann, ‘Wir waren Könige’ is a thriller that revolves around a SWAT team in which each member is fighting for his position as the ministry plans to cut several units in cost-saving measures. As the team is under special observation, and each team member needs to do his utmost, the tension and competition within the team grows.

The most natural acoustical experience
Developed by Auro Technologies and powered by Barco, Auro 11.1 by Barco is designed in accordance with a sound reproduction layout consisting of three layers (traditional Surround Sound with Height and Overhead layers), which enables studio sound mixers to move objects around in space to create the most realistic and acoustically perfect experience. Auro 11.1 is fully compatible with existing audio equipment and current workflows. The Auro 11.1 sound technology provides the best acoustic experience at the most commercially viable price point in the market, and it does so without needing to create object-based soundtracks that are designed to be optimized for the consumer market.

Discover it at Kino 2014
Barco is currently showcasing its Auro 11.1 immersive sound format at Kino 2014 in Baden-Baden, Germany – one of the biggest events in Europe for cinema professionals.
