Moving iMage Technologies announces an expanded line
of energy-conscious products designed for the modern cinema.
These products now
IS-20A/IS-20D Power Sequencers – network enabled, 6 x 20A power sequencers and line
filter for sound racks and other electronics. The IS-20 products include inrush
surge protection to softly apply the voltage, and sequences the six circuits on
or off over several seconds to minimize current surges at the building load
center. It also includes UL 1449 level 3 protection surge protection devices to
protect delicate equipment from voltage surges and spikes that might come in on
the supply voltage. The IS-20D has an advanced web interface for custom naming,
timing sequencing and individual circuit control over the network.
The IS-20 was designed with
the intention of switching an audio rack, however it’s equally applicable to
controlling house lighting, exhaust fans, signs or marquee lighting, the
concession stand, video games, or any other aspect of the theater where it’s
desirable to automatically power equipment on and off on a daily basis. The
IS-20 products save exhibitors money on power costs, labor costs and wear and
tear on breakers and switches.
Dimmer - The A-LMS brings ‘smart’
capabilities to auditorium lighting control based on the use of power-saving
LED fixtures that use the 1-10VDC architectural
dimming standard. In a typical installation, the A-LMS receives scene
cue commands from an automation or d-cinema server via GPI contact closures,
RS-232, or network interface.
Exhaust Fan Controller - The
DCE-10/20 is a closed-loop controller for efficient management of projector exhaust.
It controls exhaust airflow on demand, preventing conditioned air being wasted through
the projector when cooling is not needed. This translates to substantial energy
savings. Depending on the model, the DCE can provide airflow, temperature and
humidity data to the exhibitor NOC for monitoring the operating conditions of the
The IS-20, A-LMS and DCE
products are only the first in a series of new products being developed by
Moving iMage Technologies to create an automated, optimized, and especially, green
modern cinema theater. More information on these and other MIT products can be
