Hearing and Visual impaired aids at Regent Cinemas

Regent Cinemas introduces the CaptiView Closed Caption Viewing System for hearing impaired movie audiences.

The CaptiView system consists of a small LED display on a bendable support arm that fits into the theatre seat cup holder. The easy to read screen is equipped with a high contrast display that comes with a privacy visor so it can be positioned directly in front of the movie patron at the base of the screen image.


Regent Cinemas introduces the Audio Description Viewing System for vision impaired movie audiences. Audio description (AD) refers to an additional narration track for blind and visually impaired consumers of visual media. It consists of a narrator talking through the presentation, describing what is happening on the screen during the natural pauses in the audio, and sometimes during dialogue if deemed necessary. At the accessible locations the signal is sent to a receiver which a headset worn by the user is connected.
