Samsung introduced the world’s first Onyx multiplex theater at Shanghai ARCH Wanda Cinema on September 7th. The theater offers six Samsung Onyx Cinema LED screens in one location, creating an entertaining space to offer impressive visual experiences.
The six Onyx Cinema LED screens at Shanghai ARCH Wanda Cinema support 3D content, creating reality features with high brightness and industry leading 3D dimensional depth. The high dynamic range (HDR) picture refinement technology intensifies the image to the brightest levels with sharper and more detail-rich presentation.

“The entire Samsung team is thrilled to be part of history with the first ever Onyx multi-theater from Wanda Cinemas in Shanghai, China. Onyx technology was designed to bring the visual power of LED picture quality to the big screen and began the uprising of ultra-modern movie theaters for the future,” said Seog-gi Kim, Executive Vice President of the Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics.
Besides China, Samsung is also cooperating with an Indian film entertainment company to install five 4K Onyx Cinema LED displays in India’s major cities, which are scheduled to be completed by the end of 2018.
