Hoyts Cinemas introduces the CaptiView Closed Caption Viewing System for hearing impaired movie audiences.
The CaptiView system consists of a small LED display on a bendable support arm that fits into the theatre seat cup holder. The easy to read screen is equipped with a high contrast display that comes with a privacy visor so it can be positioned directly in front of the movie patron at the base of the screen image.
The CaptiView system transmits and receives encrypted closed captions on a wireless bank frequency with an 80 metre signal range. This means CaptiView can be used from any seat in CaptiView-Capable Auditoriums* at HOYTS.
All our locations are equipped with this state-of-the-art technology, HOYTS Sylvia Park (Auckland), HOYTS Botany Downs (Auckland), HOYTS Wairau Park (Auckland), HOYTS Te Awa (Hamilton), HOYTS Riccarton (Christchurch), HOYTS Northlands (Christchurch), Berkeley Mission Bay (Auckland), Berkeley Takapuna (Auckland), Metro By HOYTS (Hamilton), HOYTS Hibiscus Coast (Auckland).
