Christie Digital Systems today announced the purchase of Cinergy software from the Digital Cinema Implementation Partners. Cinergy is a cloud-based enterprise platform that consists of powerful yet easy to use tools to help operators track, monitor, and efficiently manage theatre presentation quality in one centralized platform.
While currently geared towards cinema, Cinergy can be tailored to add value to operations and technical programs in additional markets. Existing Cinergy customers will be unaffected by the purchase, while the deal will complement Christie’s Professional Services division, which assists in designing, manufacturing, deploying, and supporting professional AV display systems.
“This purchase is an exciting move for Christie, further strengthening our software and remote management expertise,” said Sean James, executive vice president, Professional Services, Christie. “Cinergy is a powerful solution enabling owners to transform theatre operations and realize a venue’s full potential with centralized control, real-time data, and reporting. We are delighted to welcome employees from DCIP in roles that include software developers, business development, sales and operations support.”
“Christie’s purchase of our Cinergy software provides a smooth transition and a solid future for DCIP customers and partners,” said Rich Manzione, chief executive officer, Digital Cinema Implementation Partners. “Christie has a long track record of supporting cinema exhibition. That, coupled with its remote monitoring experience, will help to ensure that Cinergy continues to grow and meet the evolving needs of cinema and beyond.”
DCIP is a joint venture owned equally by exhibition industry leaders AMC Entertainment Inc., Cinemark Holdings and Regal, a subsidiary of Cineworld Group plc.
