Film-TV-Video, Germany 2023: "This year, they can also enjoy the accompanying cinema-quality sound with their own mobile phone and headphones at the same time, creating a truly immersive experience."
Pretwork, Netherlands 2023: "Bezoekers kunnen de Cinewav app downloaden waarmee zij de begeleidende audio bij een kunstwerk kunnen horen via hun koptelefoons. Speakers ter plaatse worden daarmee overbodig en je kunt vanuit elke locatie (viewpoint) de begeleidende audio-ondersteuning inschakelen."
Live Design, New York 2023: "On an unprecedented scale at Vivid Sydney 2023, 26 May to 17 June, visitors will be able to discover a whole new way of experiencing immersive, super-sized light and animations with their own personalized cinematic quality audio."
ALIA, Australia 2023: "The Cinewav innovation means spectators can fully appreciate the aural design of Vivid Sydney artworks from anywhere: on the water, from across the harbour, from the top of a building and more.
Cinewav is a patented world-first technology that allows users to listen to a clear, crisp soundtrack on their smartphone perfectly in-sync with a public show"
Ravepubs, 2023: "At Vivid Sydney 2023, May 26 to June 17, visitors will be able to discover a whole new way of experiencing immersive, super-sized light and animations with their own personalized audio."
Electronic Specifier, 2023: "Working with main sponsor Sun Group, international consultancy, Global 2000 International turned to Cinewav to provide high-quality synchronised audio via mobile phones for the first time at an international fireworks festival. This was first debuted at the official opening ceremony on 2 June where locals and tourists across Da Nang, Vietnam’s fifth most populated city, could listen to a clear, crisp soundtrack using their smartphone in perfect sync with the fireworks themselves."
Techradar, 2023: "Traditionally, event sites have a large-scale audio distribution system installed in main audience areas but not in all spectator vantage points. Our fireworks displays can (now) be designed to be viewed by spectators spread over several kilometres of an event site or city, not just the front row of seats. This technology gives the power of music to the people to ensure they can hear the music soundtrack."
ProAVL, Asia 2023: "It truly inspired me. I was struck at the sound quality which perfectly matched the visuals. This is also the first time in Vietnam that a renowned festival like DIFF applies this technology. I think this will be a new and exciting experience that visitors will surely enjoy. DIFF 2023 is a great way to showcase international talent to a local audience, to attract tourists to the area and promote the local economy and businesses. I believe that Cinewav is a game changer for large-scale events."
