Arts Alliance Media's Screenwriter TMS integrates with Barco Alchemy

June 18, 2014

Arts Alliance Media (AAM) announced that its Theatre Management System (TMS), Screenwriter, has become the first TMS to include support for Barco’s recently announced Barco Alchemy integrated cinema media processor. This feature will be available to all current and future Screenwriter users, allowing them to easily integrate projection systems equipped with the Barco Alchemy technology into their circuits.  Support for Barco Alchemy adds to the support Screenwriter already provides to equipment from multiple different vendors even within the same cinema, allowing exhibitors to manage all screens and content in the complex from one central point.

Combining the functionalities of an integrated cinema processor (ICP) and a media server into a single projector, Barco Alchemy brings more simplicity into the projection booth, while providing future-proof modularity. Barco Alchemy technology also supports cutting-edge projection: the 4K Barco Alchemy projectors deliver superior 4K 3D images and are the first digital-cinema projectors that enable 4K 2D content to be shown at 60 fps.

“AAM are passionately committed to freedom of choice for exhibitors” said Rich Phillips, chief technology officer of AAM. “We support all the key servers and media blocks, enabling exhibitors to use equipment from different vendors in the same facility seamlessly. We are delighted to be able to now offer the same support for the innovative Barco Alchemy product, giving exhibitors the freedom to make technology decisions that are not limited by compatibility with their existing systems”

Theodore Marescaux, product manager at Barco, added: “We’re delighted that Screenwriter is now integrated with Barco Alchemy technology. In addition to having the best possible image technology, exhibitors can now seamlessly manage Barco Alchemy screens within their complex. Barco and AAM are both committed to offering exhibitors groundbreaking technology that’s easy to use, making cinema operations even more simple and reliable.”

Arts Alliance Media will be demonstrating its digital-cinema software suite at CineEurope in Barcelona at booth 601 through June 19.

Hunger Games - Mockingjay Pt 1
Film Review: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

Darker, less action-packed first half of the final installment of the popular franchise moves from arenas to rubble aplenty as Jennifer Lawrence’s super-heroine is called upon to serve her beleaguered and much-destroyed nation as propaganda instrument and leader. Fans of the books and previous two films get a less flashy palette here, but the engaging characters and strong story return to stir interest for the scheduled November 2015 finale. More »
