Movie theatre[edit]

Selected movie theatres in North America and internationally are equipped with D-BOX motion systems. The first feature film to have been encoded with D-BOX was Fast & Furious released on April 3, 2009. Since then, there have been many releases that have ranked number 1 at the box-office.[2] The Renfrew Street, Glasgow branch of the UK cinema Cineworld was the first cinema in the UK to introduce D-BOX technology.[3] Six further cinemas within the Cineworld chain have since purchased D-BOX seats.[citation needed]

In the home[edit]

D-BOX Technologies first introduced its motion generating systems in 2001 to the home theatre and PC gaming markets. The company provides a consumer version for the home. The D-BOX system can be integrated within certain manufacturer’s seating models, including the following: Acoustic Innovations, AcousticSmart Home Theatre Interiors, CDGI, Cineak, Cinematech, Continental Seating®, Design NS, Fortress Seating, Front Row Seating, Jaymar, Oray, TK Living, United Leather and VIP Cinema Seating.
