New Cinema Projector Company Formed by Industry Veterans, “Moving Image Technologies”

Joe Delgado, Bevan Wright, and David Richards, three well-known and highly respected long-time players in the cinema exhibition industry, have formed Moving Image Technologies (MIT), with plans to become the premiere manufacturer and integrator of presentation equipment specifically designed for the cinema exhibition industry. They have been joined by Phil Rafnson and Glenn Sherman, PhD, two senior executives with extensive industry experience. MIT’s corporate headquarters, manufacturing and demonstration facilities will be strategically located in Orange County California, just minutes from John Wayne airport and close to Los Angeles International and Ontario International airports.

MIT is developing a full complement of cinema exhibition equipment, including 35 mm film projectors, illumination systems and film transport systems; digital technology solutions for pre-feature, on-screen advertising and alternative content; and solutions to support the industry’s transition to digital cinema. The company’s first products will be introduced at the cinema exhibition industry’s ShowEast 2003 convention in Orlando, September 29 to October 2. A complete complement of products will be demonstrated in Las Vegas at the industry’s premier convention, ShoWest, in March 2004.

“There’s a need in the exhibition market to get back to basics, to focus on the exhibition customers’ primary needs and requirements,” said Joe Delgado, Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing. “That’s the core of the business that’s being neglected by other manufacturers. This has created the opportunity for a new company to step forward and satisfy those needs.”

MIT's stated mission is to have the most talented, passionate people in cinema working to provide the best presentation tools for the cinema exhibition industry. Additional information about MIT is available on their web site, http://www.movingimagetech.com.
