Ymagis Group, Proyecson and Ciné Digital Service Help Bring the Power of Barco Alchemy to Cinemas Worldwide

Barco, a global industry leader in digital cinema projection, announces that the theater management systems (TMS) of three key European system integrators are now compatible with the Barco Alchemy cinema projector range. Over 75% 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. 
 
A major leap forward in digital cinema technology, Barco Alchemy projectors combine the functionalities of an integrated cinema Media processor (ICMP) and a media server into one, single projector. As seamless interaction between the ICMP module and third-party TMSs is key to creating a fully automated cinema experience, Barco is collaborating closely with TMS manufacturers around the world to expand the number of compatible systems. It is therefore happy that the TMS systems of the  system integrators European Ymagis Group and French Cine Digital Service, as well as that of the Spanish Proyecson, now all operate with the Barco Alchemy projectors.

Trusted partners 
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, VP 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.”

Just like Ymagis Group, trusted Barco partner Proyecson, based in Spain, decided that its TMS should be compatible with Barco’s Alchemy projectors. Vicente Soriano, Managing Director: “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.”

Inspired by the customers
The decision of French-owned Ciné Digital Service, a network of cinema system experts, 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.” 

Future-proof digital cinema
Barco Alchemy projectors provide cinema-owners with a future-proof and complete platform for any type of projection, including 4K and high frame rate projection. By integrating playback and content management functionalities in one system, the Barco Alchemy technology offers an integrated and cost-effective solution. Tom Bert, Sr. Product Manager “We are delighted that the three TMS systems of these leading integrators now work seamlessly together with Barco Alchemy technology. In addition to having the best possible image technology, cinema exhibitors can now easily manage Barco Alchemy screens within their complex. In this way, we’ve come another step closer to our objective: making cinema operations increasingly simple and reliable, around the world.”
