Flexound's augmented audio system shakes up the cinema experience.
All the daily Finnish business news that works: Gasum, Stora Enso and FLEXOUND make headlines.
Gasum grows its gas fuel station network in Sweden, Stora Enso partners on new automated retail solutions, and a FLEXOUND Augmented Audio cinema opens in Malaysia.
Finnish energy company Gasum has opened its fifth gas filling station in Sweden, offering liquefied natural gas (LNG) and liquefied biogas (LBG) to heavy-duty vehicles. Gasum plans to grow its Nordic network to 50 gas filling stations by early 2020 in order to satisfy growing demand from logistics companies for cost-effective, low-emission fuel options. New EU regulations state that greenhouse emissions from heavy-duty vehicles need to be reduced by 30 per cent by 2030.
Finnish company Stora Enso and French digital transformation company Atos have launched a global collaboration to bring new automated retail solutions and services to market. These will be based on the concept of intelligent cabinets, which use Stora Enso’s sustainable radio frequency identification (RFID) technology to track and trace stored items. Consumers can use the e-kiosks for on-the-go purchasing with smart phones and card payments, while retailers receive a back-end solution for keeping track of transactions and replenishment.
Finnish company FLEXOUND Augmented Audio has boosted the audio experience of a new 140-seat cinema in the brand new Toppen Mall in Johor Bahru, Malaysia. FLEXOUND’s augmented sound system provides each seat with high-quality surround sound and physical vibrations. The FLEXOUND auditorium is the primary one of the new 9-screen multiplex owned by Malaysia’s second-largest cinema chain, TGV Cinemas.
