Add, edit, move, swap or dispose of any lamp inventory with the click of a button, ensuring accurate lamp inventory. Detailed reporting capabilities enable theater personnel to track changes to their inventory and manage lamps efficiently. Proactive lamp management is vital to theater operations, not only to ensure lamps are used to their full potential but to ultimately provide movie-goers the best presentation experience possible.

  • Detailed lamp reporting capabilities

 

Upcoming enhancements this year include a bulb ordering system that will be able to queue up lamp orders based on monitored lamp hours, preconfigured thresholds, and inventory levels. This will ensure that desired levels of inventory are maintained and lamps are available when needed.

 

You can see Cinergy demonstrated at CinemaCon 2019 in Las Vegas, Caesars Palace Booth 2417A.

Moving iMage Technologies Announces Availability of Cinema Direct View LED Support Frames

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Moving iMage Technologies Announces Availability of Cinema Direct View LED Support Frames

Fountain Valley, California – March 29, 2019

Fountain Valley, CA. Moving iMage Technologies (MIT), a leading manufacturer, distributor, and integrator in the cinema exhibition industry, announces the development and commercial availability of a new support system for the 10 and 14-meter series of direct view LED, or “emissive” cinema displays. The structural support frame features several innovative features for worker safety, ergonomics and to simplify installation and accurate alignment of the system. These features include four levels of catwalks behind the screen for service access; personnel restraint safety cables and integrated LED work lights on all four levels; adjustable leveling mounts at every column for quick and easy leveling; integrated anchor brackets for both the floor and the wall; as well as integrated power distribution including the ability to sequence power to the LED devices on or off row-by-row.

The more novel aspects of the design include development of a truss system to distribute the weight of the LED panels evenly without introducing stress points; also a new “truing” system for adjusting the squareness of the frame. The new frame design also incorporates pass-through channels that may be used for routing wiring, and also supports the optional attachment of a scaffold system to the front side of the frame to assist installation of the LED panels as well as baffle and masking support provisions. This development came less than 12 months after MiT managed the conversion of the first North American cinema auditorium to direct view LED technology at the Pacific Winnetka 12 theater in Chatsworth, California. The first installation of this new frame assembly is set for June of this year.
