Lenovo TheaterMax puts you in the Multimedia Driver’s Seat
Kuala Lumpur (3 March 2016) — There is a new way to enjoy multimedia on your smartphone. Lenovo today unveiled TheaterMax, the promise of an immersive experience powered by Lenovo Virtual Reality (VR) technology. It is touted to convert any multimedia content to become VR-enabled, giving users a cinematic experience when viewed through a VR headset. Lenovo also introduced two of its latest smartphones, the VIBE X3 and the VIBE K4 Note, the world’s first smartphones with TheaterMax.
“More than 50 percent of digital content is consumed on mobile devices today, and smartphones continue to be users’ primary personal entertainment device. We expect the proportion will continue to grow in the future and the expectations of newer, more sophisticated functionalities along with it. The Lenovo TheaterMax, powered by Lenovo VR, sets us apart with our commitment to design cutting-edge smartphones that meets the needs of consumers at an extremely friendly price point,” said Lydia Foo Mun Yee, Country Lead, Lenovo Smartphone, Malaysia.
Upsize Your Multimedia Experience
TheaterMax allows you to do so much more than just viewing from your smartphone screen, through three key experiential pillars – exploring, watching and interacting.
Exploring: Whether you’re coming home after a long day or chilling with friends outside, there is always a new and refreshing experience waiting to be discovered. Watch videos and games come to life when you don a pair of VR glasses, and soak in the vibrant visuals and rich surround sound.
Watching: You can also choose to catch your favorite movies once more without the crowd with TheaterMax’s widescreen cinematics of vivid colors and immersive sound quality in the palm of your hand. Take time out from that intensive project research, or even when you’re stuck for inspiration, and reward yourself with some much needed quality time with your Lenovo smartphone.
Interacting: Coupled with an endless library of games and apps, turn your Lenovo smartphone into a gaming console with TheaterMax boasting smooth graphics, life-like surround sound and responsive 3D gameplay. Smartphones are already a hit with the young (and young at hearts) for their intuitiveness and user-friendliness, now you can say goodbye to quiet weekends and routine family gatherings. Your uncles, aunts and of course grandmother, will thank you!
