Returning to CinemaCon for the fifth consecutive year, CJ 4DPLEX today unveiled its immersive demo booth at Caesars Palace Hotel in Las Vegas, CA. Introducing motion seats featuring the newest “Sway” and “Twist” motions, a new VR Sports attraction unit (Bike Type) and 4D conversions of upcoming film trailers, the company will be showcasing its most up-to-date immersive technology.

Adding to their roster of seat effects and movements, 4DX unveiled two new movements that increase motion degree by more than 400%, resulting in 170 degrees of possible motion. The combination of “Sway” and “Twist” enlarges the up and down movement possibilities while also allowing right, left and rotational movement simultaneously, creating dynamic motion movements that revolutionize the viewing experience of action-packed scenes such as car chases, flying, rolling seas, and spacewalking.

Also on display at the 4DX booth, the company is offering conference attendees and fellow exhibitors to be the first in the US to experience the 4DX VR Sports attraction unit (Bike Type).

4DX’ lineup of VR Sports attraction units currently consist of the Kayak Type, Board Type and Bike Type. The VR sports attraction units combine 4DX’ traditional motion synchronized seating with VR content, bringing sports and leisure activities to life to create a fun, exciting total immersion experience. The Bike Type is designed to re-create extreme sports such as mountain biking and motorcycling and will be showcased for the first time in the US at this year’s CinemaCon.
