Original Press Release:
For The First Time, D-Box's Quest Takes Home Motion Simulation Vertical - Prepare to Be Rocked, Rolled, Swayed And Uplifted - It's Quest X3ME!
Longueuil, Quebec, Canada - September 2005 - D-BOX® Technologies, Inc. (TSXV: DBO.A) adds to their patented line-up of motion simulator products with the introduction of the Quest(TM) X3ME (pronounced "extreme"). With Quest X3ME motion simulation seating you are immersed in realistic motion that is perfectly synchronized on three separate axis points with the onscreen action and sound. D-BOX delivers a movie viewing experience unlike anything you've ever experienced before!
For the first time, D-BOX is able to replicate the front/back, left/right AND up/down motion of the company's more expensive flagship product, Odyssee®. The addition of the third axis of vertical travel in Quest X3ME allows for a more vivid, encompassing movie viewing experience! Quest X3ME incorporates three SynDrive(TM) motorized Actuators into premium quality seating, specially designed to withstand the incredible motion forces and vibrations created by D-BOX's proprietary motion simulation system. The Actuators - configured with two mounted in the front arms of the chair and the third in the rear center - deliver up 2Gs of acceleration to the viewer and provide up to 1.5 inches of vertical travel, nearly double the travel of previous models.
"With Quest X3ME, we're offering a solution to those that are serious about their home theater experience, but working without a 'sky is the limit' budget," said Michel Jacques, CEO and founder of D-BOX Technologies, Inc. "Motion Simulation Seating is the next step necessary for a truly immersive movie viewing experience, delivering the same bumps, shakes, turns and drops that occur onscreen so that that the viewer can experience the action first hand. D-BOX has created this market niche, and with our more moderately-priced Quest line, we're delivering these technologies to a larger audience."
The ultimate plug-and-play solution for those looking for something more from their home theater, Quest X3ME seating can be controlled two ways - with the Series 3 340c Kinetron(TM) controller, or with a PC3 Motion Controller Interface (MCI) and PC-based software, both of which offer Internet subscription updates to the growing collection of D-BOX F/X motion codes. Both control systems include D-BOX's F/X Motion Code Volume 4 with 100 titles. Additional volumes of 100 titles each are also available.
The Quest X3ME recliner features a two-stage motorized "wall-hugger" recliner mechanism and is covered in 100% premium leather. Each chair frame is rigidly fabricated from hardwood solids and 13-ply European hardwood plywood with metal-to-metal fasteners to withstand the substantial motional forces created by the direct-drive actuators.
MSRP of Quest X3ME is $10,000 US. MSRP of the add-on, field-installable motion simulator system is $4,299. MSRP of the PC-based PC3 Motion Controller Interface (MCI) and Windows® software is $799. MSRP of the Series 3 340c Kinetron(TM) Controller with built-in 40-GB hard drive is $2,999. MSRP of F/X Motion Code Vol. 1, 2, 3, & 4 are $250/each. All prices given are US.
