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.

Moving iMage Technologies to Acquire Caddy Products
Join us at ShowEast 2018, Lowes Miami Beach Hotel

Fountain Valley, California – October 16, 2018

Moving iMage Technologies (MIT) has signed an agreement to acquire the assets of Caddy Products Inc. (Caddy). Caddy Products® are utilized in over 270,000 facilities throughout more than 91 countries worldwide. Their markets include cinema, sports, grocery, performing arts, worship and retail industries. Products include patented cup holders, trays and advertising displays. Jim Winebarger, Director, Caddy Products, said, “I’m excited to be part of the MIT family and look forward to expanding and growing the Caddy Products offerings.”

Caddy was originally started in 1989 by Phil Rafnson, Chairman of MIT, as a division of MTS (Media Technology Source). MTS was sold in 1999, and in 2002 Caddy was spun off in a sale to Phil Rafnson, who brought in Peter Bergin as a partner. Phil later sold control and eventually all of his interest to Peter in 2014. MIT is acquiring Caddy Products from Peter’s estate, following his tragic death early this year. Phil commented “Peter did a great job building Caddy into a substantial business, and we plan to continue his policies of top-quality products and excellent customer service, while growing Caddy into a powerhouse in its markets.”

Come visit Caddy and MIT, booth number 411 at ShowEast 2018. Stop by and see how Caddy’s offerings will help your business!
