Moving iMage Technologies Announces Enhancements to its “Green Energy” Product Line
Moving iMage Technologies announces an
expansion to its “green energy” product line with three new products and
improvements to existing products, all debuting 4Q 2017. David Richards, Moving
iMage Technologies SVP of Engineering commented, “The introduction of LED-based
lighting in theaters has rapidly become an important aspect of our Green product
line. The new technology has everyone scrambling to take advantage of the
tremendous advantages it offers in efficiency, appearance, and reduced
maintenance, which all translate to lower operating cost for the exhibitor.”
The new MiT product additions and
improvements include the following:
Architectural Lighting Manager / Dimmer system
(ALMS-20L). Effectivelytwo dimmers in one, the new ALMS-20L combines a two-channel AC
phase control dimmer with a two-channel 1.0-10VDC lighting management system.
The AC phase control portion is rated at 1000W per channel (2000W total). The
0-10VDC control outputs correspond to the IEC 60929 standard but also support additional
special features of the new MiT ALF LED lighting fixture models (see below). Both outputs are programmed using the
same user-friendly interface accessed via a network.
8” Architectural LED Fixture (ALF-8) 2018 model. This product was introduced in 2015 and continues to be refined to
add features. New additions to the technology for the 2018 model include a
feature called “Virtual 2-channel™,” a user selectable option that allows both
lighting channels to be controlled by a single 0-10V control line.
Another feature is called “AutoNox™” which completely extinguishes each
lighting channel when its control voltage is reduced to the minimum level. Other
design improvements have increased dimming ratio from 1000:1 to over 2000:1.
4” Architectural LED Fixture (ALF-4). This new fixture is a 4” diameter round downlight luminaire intended
for T-bar ceiling installation. The fixture uses the same proven LED and driver
components as its 8” big brother, including MiT’s new 2000:1 dimming, and a
projected 50,000 hour lifetime at full output. This new fixture is intended for
aisles, entranceways and exits where a narrow illumination beam is desired to
minimize spill light. It uses a 36VDC, 15W, 2700°K LED module as standard but may
be customized with a lower wattage or different color temperature LED.
Architectural LED “Split Personality” Sconce. Another new product that leverages the MiT 2-channel LED driver – by
day it’s a conventional-appearing, slim footprint, 30VDC, 30W wall sconce. But
activate the second channel and it can adopt a variety of different “personalities.”
The second channel may be a different color light. Or it can be a rear-facing
LED module to throw light on the wall behind the sconce for indirect illumination.
The second channel can also be used to project an image (e.g., your logo) on the wall from a gobo. Dual mounting modes
include conventional wall mounting as well as suspension from a T-bar ceiling
Demand Controlled Ventilation system (DCV). This product has also undergone refinement since its initial
introduction in 2016. The product automatically shuts down projector exhaust
fans when not needed, saving expensive conditioned air and reducing energy
costs. The production model now available incorporates microprocessor control
to adjust the exhaust fan speed based on projector activity as well as ambient
temperature, humidity, and fire alarm status. It can provide status feedback to
users via a network interface.
All these products will be shown at Show
East 2017 being held at the Loews Miami Beach, October 23-26, 2017, booth #411.
