nWave-InoTech pact for nWave Attractions

First content-only supplier to ride/theater operators

nWave Pictures, a producer and distribber of large format films and motion simulation ride pics, has inked a deal with InoTech, to form nWave Attractions.

New Los Angeles-based venture will distrib its own extensive library of ride and attraction films, as well as externally produced films, to all hardware platforms and in all film formats around the world, including IMAX and Iwerks.

“By combining our current and ever-growing library of ride and attraction films with the technological expertise from InoTech, we are creating the first hardware-independent company that will focus entirely on supplying and integrating content for ride simulation and attraction theater operators,” nWave founder and CEO Ben Stassen said.

Over 2,000 motion simulation ride film venues and 150 3-D special venue attraction theaters currently operate worldwide.

NWave Pictures will continue to fulfill its commitment to produce four new ride films per year internally.

Stassen founded nWave Pictures in 1992, and has produced “Dracula’s Haunted Castle,” “Glacier Run,” “Volcano Mine Ride” and “Journey Through the Center of the Earth,” among others.

InoTech was founded in 1996 by Julian Angus and Annette Preston to provide technical support, digital sound upgrade, parts replacement, motion programming, 3-D upgrades and theater conversions.
