Starlight Cinemas becomes latest Barco flagship laser projection customer, elevating its premium movie showings

 

Rancho Cordova, Calif. — Cinema market share leader Barco continues to rapidly grow its industry-leading laser projection footprint, securing Starlight Cinemas in Southern California as its latest customer with an installation at its Dos Lagos 15 theater.

 

Already a satisfied customer of Barco’s xenon projectors with dozens of units installed across its circuit, Starlight Cinemas has made the move to laser projection to offer customers a premium moviegoing experience. Cinema integration partner Moving iMage Technologies (MiT) secured and installed the project, which is targeted to “go live” in late October.

 

“As the region’s premier theater chain, we are committed to offering our guests the ultimate in cinema entertainment,” comments Gary Wallace, chief of Projection and Sound for Starlight Cinemas.  “Barco’s laser projection elevates the caliber of our movie showings and allows us to maintain our competitive edge in the market. We look forward to promoting this quality advantage to our guests.”

 

Superior image quality and the brightest 3D
Starlight Cinemas selected the Barco DP4K-45L ultra-bright, 6P laser cinema projector to illuminate its 68-foot screen in an extra-large auditorium suited to deliver premium movie experiences. The projector was chosen especially for its ability to deliver a radically improved 3D movie experience, which relies on extreme brightness levels to ensure superior image quality.

“Barco fully integrated laser projectors offer the brightness needed to show movies in their best light,” comments Bevan Wright, executive vice president of operations at Moving iMage Technologies. “It’s the only way to achieve the brightness levels needed for high-quality 3D movie presentation.”

 

Barco leading the way in cinema laser projection

Barco is the market leader in laser projection with already more than 60 theaters committed to be equipped with Barco’s Flagship Laser DP4K-L products by the end of 2015. Barco’s success in cinema laser projection is

based on the very strong value proposition Barco laser offers to the exhibition community: a major step up in the audience experience at very competitive prices. Offering a unique combination of superior image quality, unmatched 3D brightness and low TCO, Barco laser projectors give exhibitors the opportunity to create a differentiating premium movie experience at a very attractive TCO.

 

“Our laser projectors are setting the standard for image quality, while enabling simplified operations and reduced operating expenses,” comments Stijn Henderickx, VP Cinema for Barco. “This makes them an attractive investment for forward-thinking exhibitors like Starlight Cinemas, who are committed to premium movie presentation.”

Moving iMage Technologies Offering Full Line Of Products For Boothless Cinema Installations

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

MOVING iMAGE TECHNOLOGIES OFFERING FULL LINE OF PRODUCTS FOR BOOTHLESS CINEMA INSTALLATIONS

FOUNTAIN VALLEY,CA- OCTOBER 12, 2015 

Moving iMage Technologies (MIT), a premier manufacturer and integrator for the cinema exhibition industry, will be showing a full line of product solutions for boothless and alternative cinema installations at ShowEast 2015.  

 

MIT’s Micropod quiet projector enclosure is currently being installed in theatres across the country, including Flix Brewhouse’s new three-screen addition to their Round Rock, TX location.   The Micropod permits the projector to be located inside the auditorium with acoustical noise suppression and ducted air intake and exhaust to keep the projectors quiet and cool.

 

MIT’s Hush Rack provides a physically secure, acoustically quiet and air filtered equipment rack for mounting audio components and other electronics behind the screen or in the auditorium space.  “MIT’s Hush Racks give us peace of mind by protecting our electronics located behind the screens” said Duane Davis of Flix Brewhouse.

 

Currently being used daily in hundreds of installations the IS-20 power managers automatically sequence on/off electronic equipment to save on power and labor costs.   With equipment located in closets or behind screens the IS-20 pays for itself in power savings and operational efficiencies.  Controlled by the server or automation a simple cue powers up the system in the morning and automatically powers down after the last show. The IS-20 also includes line filtering and spike suppression to protect and extend the life of electronics it powers.

 

CineQC is also a key component for installations where there is not easy physical access to the projection and sound equipment.   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.

Moving Image Technologies introduces A New Division Focusing on the Business and Operations for the Cinema Exhibition Industry

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.
