Barco debuts mobile app for d-cinema equipment

June 25, 2013

Barco is releasing a free mobile app for both Apple iOS and Android devices. The CineMate app enables exhibitors to easily control and operate their digital-cinema equipment via their smart-phone, tablet or other mobile device. The app will be available for download in the App Store and Google Play from mid-July onwards.

With this fully scalable system, users simply add screens and build the structure of their theatre from the intuitive user interface. The app plays well with Communicator LITE on Barco’s DP2K-10S projector and with media servers featuring a web-based user interface. Currently, CineMate automatically detects Barco projectors and the Doremi IMS1000, which simplifies the initial theatre setup. It also enables the integration of any other equipment with a web user interface into the dashboard. In this way, the app allows you to group and structure your digital-cinema equipment in a clear overview that enables faster operation.

From the theatre overview on the dashboard, users can zoom in on a specific projection booth and access the digital-cinema equipment that’s in there (e.g., servers or projectors). Thus, they have immediate and centralized access to everything they need for the day-to-day operations of their servers (content management, planning, etc.) and projectors (lamp, macros, dowser, etc.). Even troubleshooting and maintenance actions can quickly be performed via this interface, from any location in the theatre.
