D-BOX Technologies is a Canadian company which designs, manufactures, and markets moving seats intended mainly for the entertainment and industrial simulation markets. The seats are motorized to create an illusion of movement and is timed with the screen, in order to make the audience feel like they're tilting back and forth or moving up or down. The seats can also vibrate and shake in time with explosions and other kinds of action sequences.
Products and services
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.
Public Trial Machines
In 2017, DBOX started rolling out public machines that allowed you to 'trial' the DBOX experience without paying anything. Most of them include watching and moving with a trailer but some have been seen to be gaming simulations at various conventions.
In the home
D-BOX Technologies first introduced its motion generating systems in 2001 to the home theater and PC gaming markets. The D-BOX system can be integrated within many different seats. For existing seating, motion can be added with the help of a D-BOX Motion Platform. As of 2013, the system supports a library of over 1,000 movies.
In 2018, DBOX updated their chairs to include density adjustments, and reclining seats. The first cinema to see this change was Empire Sutton.
DBOX has had many advertising schemes over the years, most notably their most used slogan: 'Feel It All' which was used in the 2017 ad. Their original slogan: 'Move In Motion' was first used in England. In cinema advertising schemes vary from theater to theater, with Cineworld encouraging people to 'Feel The Movie' and Empire starting the hashtag: #loseyourselfinfilm.
