XL Cinema is a mobile application (audio content delivery platform) that enables the user to listen to the alternate audio track of a movie in the language of choice privately through his headphones connected to the smartphone. This application also enables a visually impaired person to listen to Audio Description of a movie(content) privately using his smartphone synchronized to the video playing in theatre or at home. The application synchronizes the Audio description track or Alternate audio track with the help of listening to ambient audio in theatre or at home within a few seconds. The application recognizes the ambient audio and if the requested movie is playing in audible range then it synchronizes the additional track which is Audio Description in the case of visually impaired people and alternate language. After synchronization, the VI person or User has to plug in the earphone/headphone and then he could listen to Audio Description track or Translated track of the movie in Sync with the content playing in front of him. This application replaces Assistive listening devices and makes every smartphone loaded with it capable of performing like Assistive listening devices (ALD). It also replaces the need for subtitles in case you want to watch a foreign language movie.
You can listen to sound track of the movie playing in theater privately on your headphone/earphone connected to your mobile device sitting inside the movie hall in the language you prefer in real-time without any delay and in sync with the video playing on the screen!!!
The audio is perfectly synchronized with the video and is in real-time so there is no delay. Audio through XL Cinema includes music and sound effect with dialogues. You can control the volume and also pause in between. But when you resume, it will still be in sync with the video of the theatre. Any time if you feel, it’s out of sync, you may press the "Re-Sync" button.
For Audio description please enable AD Mode so that the application becomes more VI friendly and you only access content specially made for Visually impaired patrons.
Even if you have a late entry in the theatre. XL Cinema can still play the audio in sync with the video played on theatre screen. You just need to Tap and Play the sound track in your selected language!
Remember this will work with the Audio Ticket you have got and with the movies which are supported. The Audio Ticket is one-time usable code. Our aim is to bridge the language barrier and present the movies in as many languages as possible! Soon we would cover most of the major languages.
