Why Do Hong Kong Cinemas Sound So Bad?

Principal Investigator

  • Dr. Robert Jay ELLIS-GEIGER

Abstract

There are a small number of high quality sounding cinemas in Hong Kong, but most have major issues with acoustics, system design and lack of proper calibration methods. A detailed survey of selected Hong Kong cinemas will be conducted to discover their room acoustic properties, audio system design and calibration methods (if at all).
