At this year’s CineEurope in Barcelona, June 20-23, Barco will showcase how its cinema solutions offer moviegoers a unique cinema experience and provide exhibitors with a strong return on investment.
Allure, a Christie Company, has launched a new set of out of the box video wall packages designed to make implementation easier, quicker and more cost effective, all while offering a choice of top quality displays, warranties and installation services.
Christie will showcase its full range of products at CinemaCon 2016 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, April 11-14. The company’s Booth – 2303A – will feature various Christie products and video case studies. In addition, Christie laser projection will be used for select Colosseum events, there will be Christie digital signage in the Coke lounge and registration area, and product launch demonstrations in private meeting rooms.
Barco was honored at the 2016 Digital Signage Expo with a prestigious Bronze Apex Award in the arts, entertainment and recreation category. The award recognizes the Barco Lobby Experience installed last year for ShowBiz Cinemas at its Baytown Entertainment Center in Texas.
The cinema lobby experience will be among Barco’s highlights during the Digital Signage Expo, which is being held March 16-17 in Las Vegas. Barco’s interactive digital signage technology for movie theaters, turns lobbies into revenue-generating entertainment centers. The centerpiece of the effort is the Barco Lobby Experience, which enlivens the lobby with animated box office and concession boards, interactive movie posters, and dynamic trailer presentations that drive engagement from the moment customers enter the theater.
Christie has signed an exclusive deal with National Amusements to deliver digital in-theatre advertising and promotional content through its Christie Experiential Networks displays in theatre lobbies throughout the exhibition leader’s U.S. circuit. The agreement is the latest in CEN’s expansion across North America.
Userful Corporation has released Userful 8.5, a multi-source video wall controller that the company says supports video walls of up to 60 displays with up to 6K-resolution source in real time over a standard Ethernet network. A single PC or server running Userful software is now able to support video walls of up to 60 screens through the network.
Barco is partnering with cinema integrator Cine Brasil to drive customer engagement and revenue opportunities in today’s movie theaters with its Barco Lobby Experience. Described as “the show before the show,” the customizable solution brings the box office, concessions and lobby area to life with a collection of bold, interactive visualization technologies.
Christie has acquired Allure Global Solutions, an engagement and transaction technologies provider, as well as all of its products and services. The firm is headquartered in Atlanta, and will operate as Allure, a Christie Company.
The latest digital signage installation in Christie’s Experiential Networks is the lobby of Michigan-based Emagine Entertainment’s recently opened Emagine Palladium theatre in Birmingham, Michigan.
