SANYO Electric Co. and Warner Mycal Corp, Time Warner’s cinema operator in Japan, have been installing SANYO’s large scale humidifying air purification systems in Warner’s theaters.
The packaged rooftop air conditioner unit equipped with an air purification system featuring ‘virus washer’ technology has already been installed in 5 screens at 4 Warner Mycal Cinemas theaters thus far. The ‘virus washer’ function effectively suppresses airborne bacteria, viruses, pollen and odors using electrolyzed water produced by decomposing tap water with an electric current. The effectivness of electrolyzed water in this capacity has been proven by testing laboratories in various locations throughout the world (please see reference material 1). This technology is also installed in SANYO’s home air purification systems and humidifiers, portable air purifiers as well as commercial-grade air purification systems. With a broad product lineup and range, SANYO provides a clean air environmental solution for a variety of scenes ranging from the bedside of sleeping babies to spacious rooms where the public often frequent.
An experiment demonstrating the effect of the packaged rooftop air conditioner unit equipped with the air purification system already installed in 5 screens of the Warner Mycal Cinemas confirms that airborne bacteria was decreased in all screen areas, with purification levels equivalent to a bioclean room (please see reference material 2). The test installment has been received favorably by theater patrons, who have made comments on the difference in the quality of air (please see reference material 3). The additional installment concluding the exclusive agreement would allow the cinemas to welcome more guests for a safe and comfortable movie experience.
