Fountain Valley, California—Apr 20, 2015
Moving Image Technologies introduced at the Cinemacon Show in Las Vegas, A New Division Focusing on the Business and Operations for the Cinema Exhibition Industry
The Professional Cinema Enterprise Solutions (a Division of Moving iMage Technologies) will be anchored by Cinergy, a modular, cloud-based Cinema Enterprise suite of software tools for complete and secure management, reporting and visibility into your theatres and their assets. Centralized at the corporate level with regional and localized drill-down capabilities to any digital asset or existing software system, Cinergy provides you with the most comprehensive management of your cinema business.
A product of joint marketing and development with Digital Cinema Implementation Partners (DCIP), Cinergy is backed by the most experienced and proven IT and software development professionals in the cinema industry.
“Digital cinema was a huge leap forward in technology for our industry. Our initial focus was in the presentation of great pictures and sound. Having achieved the best presentation possible, we started to look at ways to leverage the new digital platform and the information it provides. Since the digital systems allow for electronic connectivity and generate voluminous amounts of invaluable data, exhibitors have expressed a strong interest in software tools that would enable them to leverage the digital connection and extract, collate and manage all of that data. Cinergy does this for exhibitors” says Joe Delgado, EVP Sales and Marketing for MIT.
Richard Manzione, CEO of DCIP, states “Coming from an exhibition background, I know how critical it is to have the right kinds of information. A large amount of raw, unorganized data is just as invisible to management as no data at all. Our team, working with and listening to cinema operators, has developed a modular software solution that is easily customized for any size cinema business. Cinergy cost-effectively scales to any exhibitor’s particular needs and scope. Software is not a static proposition; our partnership with MIT will allow us to refine and innovate our products as our customers’ business requirements change and evolve.”
Together with Cinergy, another anchor product of the Professional Cinema Enterprise Solutions Division is Cine-QC. This operations tool not only expands the usability of the digital cinema network but also provides a digital logging and accountability platform that has long been needed in our industry. CineQC utilizes low cost tablets to permit wireless projection, sound and auditorium control as well as Near Field Communications (NFC) tags to create time-stamp and proof-of-location verification. Checklists and service tickets are also a function of the CineQC platform to improve presentation quality and facility supervision. “The CineQC platform really improves operational efficiency and accountability, taking full advantage of the capabilties that digital cinema enables. The NFC tag verification requires that the operations or security personnel be present at a given location to perform their checklists or system adjustment; this is a key feature of the patent-pending system” says Bevan Wright, EVP of Operations at MIT. Please see these products and more from MIT at booth 2419A or at Milano Suite 1.
