AFI SILVER THEATRE AND CULTURAL CENTER Silver Spring, Maryland
Located above the platter and also equipped in all three theatres is the captioning projector. Controlled by the DTS-XD10 players, open captions can be displayed over the film image for those that are severely hearing impaired or deaf. All three theatres also feature dual-channel headsets that can provide either the typical hearing impaired feed (stage channels, center weighted) as well as a “Descriptive” audio signal for the blind. Shows with open captions are normally published in advance.
