Ushio America and Matex offer Virtual Energy Management System for cinemas

Technology and New Products

Ushio America, Inc. has partnered with Matex Controls to offer a Virtual Energy Management System (VEMS) platform to their customers. Designed specifically with cinema buildings in mind, VEMS offers energy savings of more than 25% over time with no out-of-pocket expense to exhibitors, Ushio America says.

VEMS is a universal platform that integrates IT systems and the technical infrastructure of a building. The system is based on the idea of a human operator who constantly analyzes technological load of the building, atmospheric conditions and ERP data, and adjusts the operation of ventilation, air-conditioning and electrical systems to the current needs. The program is configurable and scalable, has auto-adaptation tools and can be integrated with any external system or installation. To learn more, visit
