Turn any location into a real time motion theater ride with the XD THEATER, a true 3D to 6D motion simulated thrill ride that transcends time, space and imagination ! With our unique and cost effective motion seats, you won?t have to compromise your standards for successful entertainment, customer satisfaction and unparalleled instant profitability, with a ROI (Return On Investment) from just 3 to 8 months from date of installation !
Convenient Installation Anywhere On The Planet !
Our motion platforms are so adaptable that you can install them in any location. There is no need for any major construction. The XD theater seats are as easy to install as traditional theater seats. Our motion platforms are self-contained making them convenient enough to take on the road or fill an existing room.
Unparalleled Acceleration !
Our XD Theater seats boats up to 2 G's of acceleration and up to 400 movements per second thanks to our industry leading patented technology. This is a huge step up from the limited 1 G standard that most other motion ride platforms on the market currently offer.
Wide Range of Application !
The XD Theater offers a greater advantage over other motion platforms. The XD Theater can turn any existing movies into a thrilling and exciting rider experience, since our state of the art motion seat technology provides more than just jolts and tilts - It provides a true experience ! Maintenance Made Easy : High Tech Intelligence ! We understand that operational efficiency is the greatest asset in running a motion platform. Every XD Theater actuator has a digital signal processor (DSP) that communicates a constant data stream to the main station. Each individual actuator allows the station to know at all times their operational status. If an actuator should malfunction, this information is sent to the station describing exactly what happened - And this instant diagnostic lets the system self adjust ! Troubleshooting this easy makes our product an operator's dream ! The self diagnostic program tells the XD Theater system which part of the actuator is defective for simple and accurate service. What kind of projectors are used?
In most of our installations, we use commercial DLP HD projectors in a dual configuration mode to produce 3D effects, we may change the requirements when working on a customized location. Why electric vs pneumatic or hydraulic?
Electric motion base systems are a cost effective and easy way to maintain systems that can be operated with no special technical knowledge; anyone can operate and maintain the theater easily. Whereas a specific trained technician will be needed for any pneumatic or hydraulic based system

Why buy a "Single Seat" ride vs. a "Platform" based ride - What is the difference ? The biggest difference between single seat based theaters (XD Theater) vs. platform based rides is when problems occurs. On the single seat platform, only one seat is affected, and you can still run your business with the remaining seats, whereas on competitor's rides, the entire platform is down and you have to wait for the problem to be fixed before starting back operations.
That could make a big difference in profitability, especially if it happens anytime during your peak season or peak hours. Also, with each of our seats individually animated, the movement is much more realistic and a heck of lot faster ! Each of our specialty seats can generate motion up to 400 Movements/Sec, and up to 2 G's of Acceleration / Speed Simulation, plus 6 Degrees in Freedom Of Movement (1st left- right, 2nd front-back, 3rd up-down, 4th Yaw, 5th Pitch, 6th Roll)
What is an Actuator ? An actuator is something that converts energy into motion. An actuator typically is a mechanical device that takes energy, in this case electricity and converts that into some kind of motion. That motion can be anything from blocking to clamping to ejecting. Actuators are typically used in manufacturing or industrial applications and may be used in things like motors, pumps, switches, and valves. We use special electric motors (actuators) to recreate extreme motion sensation, by using two actuators? and a front pivot. We can recreate any type of motion sensation which allows us to have the most realistic motion experience on the market.
How does an Actuator work ? Data is streamed to the encoder of the actuator and in turn the encoder drives the motor of the actuator which in turn interprets the motion data stream. Information is sent to the actuators and is transformed into motion. Actuators work a little like a music instrument, the musician reads from a partition and plays the instrument that produces a melody; the actuators read the information encoded in the movie and produce the motion. So the interaction of the actuators and the movie will offer you the most realistic motion experience on the market.
What are the D's stand for in 3D / 4D / 6D ? D stands for dimension. All of our movies are HD 3D movies. So we start with 3 dimensions, then you add the movement of our seats, plus the light effect within our theater and finally, the extreme wind effect which provide a total of 6 dimensions, or a " 6D " experience !
What kind of Movie Projectors are used in the XD Theater ? In most of our installation, we use commercial DLP HD projectors in a dual configuration mode to produce our 3D images; we may change requirements when working on a customized location.
Why should I choose an Electric Motion System vs. Pneumatic or Hydraulic Systems ? Electric motion base systems are a cost effective and easy way to maintain systems that can be operated with no special technical knowledge; anyone can operate and maintain the theater easily. Whereas a specific trained technician will be needed for any pneumatic or hydraulic based system
What is the general lead time for production and delivery of the XD Theater ? From 4 to 24 seat theaters, the production time will vary anywhere from 6 to 8 weeks. For 24 seat theaters and up, the production time will vary anywhere from 8 to 10 weeks.
How much space is required for an XD Theater ? Depending on the quantity of seats you choose and the size of your enclosure, there are many different XD Theatre configurations, so measurements will differ.
Can I build my own XD Theater Structure or Enclosure ? We offer adaptable pre-made structures from 4 to 12 seats, but some customer already have their own constructions based on their own designs, or want to design their own, and that's fine with us !
What are the requirements to build my own Theater Structure or Enclosure ? Using our preliminary drawings, a structure should be made according to the local, regional, state or national government laws and building regulations in the country where the XD Theater will be installed using our measurements and requirements. Pleas note that we cannot offer any assistance in the construction design, since we are not experts in international laws and regulations of every country.
