Cannes 2010

Bowers & Wilkins is proud to announce its presence at the Cannes Film Festival 2010. Bowers & Wilkins has been chosen to equip the movie theatres of the Film Market and the Short Film Corner screening rooms at the festival, and will settle on la Croisette for 11 days to provide sound equipment for movie theatres in Gray d’Albion and small screening rooms of short films.

Each of the four movie theatres ‘Gray d’Albion’ 1-4 will be equipped with a CT700 theatre system. The CT700 system is flexible and powerful, and of incredibly high quality. All the loudspeakers are strictly designed and built to have exactly the same tone and dynamic range, and provides many of the benefits of the high-end CT800 custom theatre system. All systems will be powered by Classé electronics.

The CT700 Series uses a series of breakthrough Bowers & Wilkins technologies, such as Nautilus tube-loaded tweeters and Kevlar drive units. Technology that is featured in the 800 Series range, which has become a global reference for cinema and music by equipping many recording studios in the world such like Abbey Road Studios in London, Sony Music in New York, and Skywalker Sounds in California where Hollywood records movie soundtracks and sound effects.

As well as these main rooms, the short films screening booths of the Short Film Corner at the Palais des Festivals will be equipped with Bowers & Wilkins P5 hi-fi headphones and 5.1 XT Series speaker systems, powered by Rotel electronics.

The Cannes Film Festival runs from the 12th to 23rd May 2010.
