‘The Nemo Room’ is the first IMAX private theatre on a superyacht, that will not only be used to watch cinema blockbuster releases, but it will also project live underwater CCTV images from the ocean.
Alan Bernardi, Founder and Managing Director of Yacht Intelligence, explains:
“With IMAX’s strict parameters and incredibly specific technological requirements, our first challenge was to persuade them to take us seriously, and prove that it would be possible to create a truly unique private theatre on a superyacht.”
This groundbreaking private theatre will not only be used to watch current theatrical blockbuster releases, but it will also project live underwater CCTV images from outside the yacht onto the walls inside the theatre, thus giving the concept its name, The Nemo Room. The high-tech private media room is being designed to entertain in many different ways with both the owner’s family and their guests in mind. It is anticipated that the theatre will also be used for Blu-Ray, streaming live content, gaming and video conferencing.
Having come up with the original idea for The Nemo Room, Yacht Intelligence, with the support of IMAX, approached world-renowned yacht designer and good friend, Ken Freivokh, to help take the concept to the next level. Ken Freivokh, famous for his inventive designs and passion for audio visual excellence, happened to be designing a 150m superyacht for a client who he knew would be happy to try novel ideas. This project has created the perfect opportunity for the group to work on this unique concept.
