The theater management systems of European system integrators Ymagis Group, Proyecson and Ciné Digital Service are now compatible with the Barco Alchemy cinema projector range.
More than 75 percent of the cinemas worldwide that use a TMS can now rely on their TMS to manage the Barco Alchemy projectors – a number that is growing month by month.
Ymagis Group/dcinex is a long-standing Barco partner. “As a leading company in Europe in the area of advanced digital technology services for the motion picture industry, we aim to provide our customers with the most up-to-date and smart technologies available on the market,” says Till Cussmann, vice president sales exhibitor services for Ymagis Group. “Our Melody TMS solution enables the centralized and remote management of cinema complexes’ multiple projection systems by interacting with each auditorium’s server from a single point of access. Integrating the Barco Alchemy range into our TMS is a logical choice to expand its deployment as we are servicing more than 7,200 screens across Europe.”
Barco partner Proyecson, based in Spain, decided that its TMS should be compatible with Barco’s Alchemy projectors. Vicente Soriano, managing director said, “Our latest version of P-TMS4.0 fully supports Barco’s Alchemy Projectors. It’s only one of the many tokens of our long-term partnership with Barco. Today, Proyecson services over 600 digital projectors in Spain, hundreds of which are Barco DCI Projectors in Spain, and we cooperate with Barco in innovative projects like our P-SBOX14 Boothless Solution, thus shaping the future of digital cinema projection.”
The decision of French-owned Ciné Digital Service to make its TMS compatible with Barco Alchemy projectors was inspired by its customers. “CinéDigital Manager, our TMS, supports day-to-day operations in over 6,000 cinema theaters around the world,” says Etienne Roux, business development manager at Ciné Digital Service. “The software supports all the key servers, enabling our customers to use the digital cinema equipment of their choice. Upon request of many of our customers, mainly in Asia in fact, we were happy to make our system fully compatible with the Barco Alchemy projectors. Barco Alchemy is really very popular around the world and the success in Asia, where many cinema chains are being built these days, is impressive.”
