Another Look At Room Design Part 1

This page is to dedicated to discussion of a real cinema layout in particular, clearing up some confusion around their viewing angle spec of 36 degrees. 

THX Certified Cinema

If we refer to the image, you can see the subtended triangle extends from the centre seat of the back row to the edges of the scree and that the angle of the apex is 36 degrees.  This means that the seats in the back row are positioned to have a viewing angle of 36 degrees and therefore every seat in front of that row will have a wider viewing angle.  This is also how I feel Home Cinema should be done as well and in my next blog page [Another Look At Room Design Part 2], I take this concept in to the home.
