In summer of 2014, Cinema Equipment and Supplies (CE+S)
introduced Cielo as the next level of remote monitoring and a solution to a
huge problem: Exhibitors feared that when they were away from their theaters,
unmonitored issues were leading to missed shows. For the last few months, Cielo
has been available to an exclusive group of beta testing partners like
Silverspot Cinemas, Southern Theaters and Marcus Theaters. It was through in
depth ongoing feedback with these and other partners that the beta version of
Cielo evolved into the full product version hitting the market today.
Trust in remote monitoring, accuracy and reliability of
service, efficiency of problem solving, and real-time communication emerged as
necessities to avoid the dreaded black screen.
“With the new digital projection technology since 2010, a
show would stop and there would be no precise indication of why.” Francisco
Schlotterbeck, CEO of Silverspot Cinemas explains how Cielo has helped his team
prevent lost revenue. “The show would be lost before the solution was found.
Now, the alert is received, the information communicated, and we’re able to
communicate to the audience when the show will go on – or, better, we problem
solve and they never notice.”
Intuitive features like the activity stream give cinema
theater operations teams a historical view of alert and solution activity
across their circuit and by auditorium. Cielo’s new dashboards give the cinema
owners their most important theater data at a glance – specifically active
alerts, equipment performance data, open support tickets, content reporting and
Mark Collins, Director of Projection Technology at Marcus
Theaters, was a Cielo beta partner and was given a sneak peek of the official
product. “What this Cielo team has managed to do in a very short amount of time
has really impressed me,” he asserts. “I have faith this team will continue to
deliver in the software space for the cinema industry and I look forward to a
continued partnership with them.”
