AMC Theatres Announce Captioning!

Cinemark, check! AMC Theaters, check! Regal, you're next in line! CLOSED CAPTIONING IN ALL MOVIE THEATERS NOW!


AMC Theatres and ALDA Announce Greater Accessibility for Deaf or Hard-of-Hearing Guests at All Digital Movie Theatres in California
Dec. 20, 2011, Kansas City, Mo. – AMC Theatres® (AMC) today announced it will install personal captioning systems for its guests who are deaf or have significant hearing loss. The captioning systems will be installed in California, and across its national circuit, on a rolling basis, in conjunction with AMC’s national conversion to digital cinema. AMC will offer closed captioning for 127 screens in California by mid-2012, and projects that number to grow to over 500 screens by late 2013.
Movie captions convey the dialogue, narration, musical cues, key sound effects, speaker identification and other auditory information, in the form of written text for guests who have significant difficulty hearing the movie sound track. Closed captions are relayed – in sync with the movie – only to guests who choose to receive them via a personal display device.
In setting the time-table for installation of captioning capability in California, AMC worked closely with the Association of Late-Deafened Adults (ALDA), an advocacy group for those who have lost some or all of their hearing, Disability Rights Advocates (DRA), a non-profit legal center, headquartered in Berkeley, Calif., and John Waldo, an attorney whose practice focuses on the needs of those with hearing loss.
“We applaud AMC’s collaborative efforts in working with us to provide closed captioning technology, which allows our constituents with hearing loss the opportunity to watch first-run movies in theatres throughout California,” said Cynthia Amerman, President of ALDA.
“We are pleased AMC chose to continue its commitment to captioning as the industry transitions from traditional film technology to digital cinema,” said Sid Wolinsky of Disability Rights Advocates.
“We commend AMC’s support for captioning,” said Elizabeth Leonard of Disability Rights Advocates. “AMC’s decision to provide captioning in its digitally converted theatres makes first-run movies available to millions of patrons who are deaf and hard-of-hearing in California.”
“The conversion to digital cinema has created new opportunities to improve closed captioning for offerings. We intend to work closely with them to make sure that we provide high quality closed-captioning systems for our deaf and hard of hearing patrons,” John McDonald, executive vice president of U.S. Operation for AMC added.
“AMC has supported and provided captioning for many years,” said Laura Franze, a partner with the law firm of Hunton & Williams LLP, who represented AMC in its negotiations with ALDA. “Today’s decision reaffirm’s AMC’s long-standing commitment to the company’s deaf and hard of hearing patrons.”

Yay! 'bout time!!

By the way, I went to see "The Descendants" with George Clooney this past weekend. Excellent movie, and I could understand a lot more of the dialogue than usual. There is less background noise (i.e., music) in that movie than most, I think. And George Clooney's diction is unusually precise, too, which makes a big difference.

Anyway, good movie. I recommend it highly.

It's not the mirror thing.. I think that's called Rear Window Captioning.. I HATE that too. And the captioning isn't on the movie screen (which I actually prefer)

No, this is something else. I'll try my best to describe it.......

It's a black box with an adjustable post that fits in your cup holder. You can move and manipulate the post to your desire. The captioning itself consists of bright green letters, much like you see on a TTY, but it isn't a marquee. The captioning, instead, is very similar to what you see on your TV. What I mean by that is you have two lines that appear when the speaker (character) talks. The lines appear and disappear to match the speaker, like the captioning on your TV.

It does not reflect anything behind you. The script and information is ready inside the device.

God, I hope this makes sense. I'm high on cold medicine now. I'll try again later if necessary.

Hmm - looks a bit clunky, and might be difficult constantly changing focus from the screen to the little device, but certainly better than nothing.

Sorry I missed that and it is clearly shown at the start. I did miss some in switching to the You Tube version for the larger size.

Have since looked for a captioned version and have not found one. Anyone know if there is one and, if so, where it is (link).

Unfortunately, there is none. To be honest, I'm surprised there is no official video demonstration from the company itself.

Here is their link.

Eh, it sort of is... Once you get it positioned and all set up, it's not half bad. There's definite room for improvement but it's also a huge step up from RW captioning.

That is a huge step from the stupid rear window captioning. I hated it so much!

Anyway, when I went to Sequoia National Park in California....they had a documentary TV show with red lettering captioning below the TV itself, I thought it was pretty weird but it works. It was at the visitor center.

We are supposed to get it here in the first quarter of 2012. This is the first time we will be getting captioned movies in the area. I have never experienced CaptiView, but I did experience RWC a few times in a different city years ago. I can't say that I was a fan of RWC due to its extreme limitations though.

However, by looking at CaptiView, it seems like a big leap from the RWC. Do you like it? I know we would rather have open captioning, but you know how people are. Money is always the bottom line.

What are the pros and the cons of it?

I can't wait until this (or something like it) reaches the AMC theater here. My mom uses the assistive listening headphones at the one here (which are good enough for her to get the movie), but she says the sound is quite fuzzy/static-y no matter what she does, even if she goes and gets a different headset. I have to wonder if she'd go for something like this. I also wonder about the changing of focus.

Captionfish.com shows 2-16 CV movies are shown at one location per week compared to 2-3 OC movies at another location per week. That's one advantage of CV. A disadvantage of CV is that it's not an open caption.

Because every time my mother and I look in the newspaper to see what kind of movies are out there and what are good to watch, every time we see a movie that's supposely closed captioning in the theater, we go to that one and we ask if we can have something for the CC and they say oh its not CC.. it doesn't make sense either!

Look up Captionfish.com and select your state and nearest cities respectfully.

CV = CaptiView Closed Captioned
OC = Open Captioned
RW = Rear Window Captioned

i just downloaded the app. I live in the dayton area. I looked up at some movie theaters near me, the only available movie theater that has CC is in piqua. the mall: The Greene has NO captions avaliable, and its the closest one near me. none of the other movie theaters has any CC availiable except for piqua and huber heights, but huber heights has like only 1 or 2 movies with CC but none i would like to watch. Piqua seems to have more CC availiable on a lot of Movies but it would be too far away to drive. almost an hour there and an hour back.

Piqua is about 27 miles away from Dayton so it should take about 30 mins to drive one way.

I have been using RWC and CaptiView for the last few years in Canadian movie theaters. (Toronto's ScotiaBank Theatre, as well as the SilverCity in Ottawa).

Summary:
- I now prefer CaptiView, now having used both
- CaptiView theaters have more captioned movies than RWC theaters.
- CaptiView is brighter; CaptiView has bigger text (in terms of angular vision coverage); compensates for the refocussing requirement
- On a per-screen basis, CaptiView is cheap to install, if the cinema is already digital projection (especially if Doremi equipment). For one screen, RWC may be cheaper, but for equipping a whole digital multiplex...
- You have to refocus while driving anyway: car road vs car dashboard

RWC is easier for focussing (especially if you strategically sit exactly between the screen and the LED marquee at the rear wall of the theatre).

However, the text on the CaptiView system is much bigger and brighter than RWC so that compensates. I can speedread at a glance, so the focus burden is pretty low. Sometimes I can even read the text without refocussing. The CaptiView display is on a bendable arm. My tactic is to bend the CaptiView display to be as far away from my face as possible (about 2 feet away) so that refocussing between the screen and the CaptiView is not a hassle at all. Once adjusted properly, it just like driving on the road (focussing on driving) - and refocussing on the speedometer dash or GPS (focussing inside car). Try not to adjust CaptiView closer than about two feet in front of your face, it will greatly eliminate eye strain for most. It also helps if you're sitting in the middle of the theatre, rather than the rear of the theatre; the focal plane is closer, so less refocussing effort.

Generally, I now prefer CaptiView because it is flexible: The display can be carried to any movie theatre, and is cheaper to install than the RWC system. Most theaters that have CaptiView have it functional in more cinema rooms than RWC, so there's more choice of captioned movies. Cheaper to install means more theatres can support the captioning system. You only need a few caption displays per multiplex (unless the whole deaf university goes to the theatre all at once -- uh oh). I like CaptiView better because CaptiView theaters have more captioned movies!!!

CaptiView works over a Bluetooth-like wireless signal, so make sure that when theaters install CaptiView, their transmitting antenna is very well located. And users adjust CaptiView with a clear line of sight to the rear of the room (Where the antenna probably is located). I've had reception problems if I held the CaptiView low, it always worked better when the CaptiView was raised very high above and/or forward. I've gotten 5 free movie tickets from my complaints about CaptiView problems, but these days it is now working very reliably. (I left the movie room in the first 20 minutes of the movie to demand adjustment). I must've been a guinea pig, but the 5 free movie tickets make me happy. Anyway, AMC has the burden of ensuring that the CaptiView radio reception is reliable, by properly positioning the central antenna in an optimal location; it will make a huge difference. There will be glitches during the first few months of testing, expect them. When you run into problems, write down a notes and report to customer service (preferably step out of the theater early in the movie), so that they can eventually get people to make adjustments to reliability as well as replace defective CaptiView units. (I have fond memories: Captiview unit #05 at ScotiaBank Theatre was a dreaded dud unit for a few months -- but it was always a free-movie-ticket earning machine until they finally fixed the defective CaptiView unit #05)

Overall, I like Captiview for the potential to cheaply add captioning; and its potential to eventually allow almost all movies at all screens at the theater to become captioned. CaptiView is also fully 3D compatible, too.

Looking forward to Captiview - when the RWC came out I drove from Barrie to Toronto to check it out. I like to be closer to front to see at church and meetings. It took me a few minutes to clue it RWC is a mirror and was wondering why the print was so small and and to move back to make the print bigger. Captiview looks good - sit any place in theatre and have good size print, also not blocked if someone stands up behind you!

Thank you for sharing your insights on the CaptiView technology. A local theatre here is going to install it sometimes this quarter. I am looking forward to a fully accessible theatre.

What about a new technology which called Sony access glasses aka Sony-DV. Sony made a deal with regal cinemas and its successful. This is way better than RV, OC, and CR.

I decided to check out Captionfish.com to see what's up. Wow! Unbelievable! Almost all local theaters within 60 miles from my home provide Sony-DV now for MANY movies. Maybe one day I will try it out. That will be interesting to find out why these glasses are popular now.

I hate those RWC systems too because they're too twitchy. I have to stay absolutely still or the mirror gets shifted out of focus. OC is the only one I really like. The CaptiView technology looks interesting though because of how theaters can make movies more accessible without having to go through such hoops.

I prefer OC, too but unfortunately there are fewer movies with OC today. Damnit!
