The move marks a new era of end-to-end digital innovation in the industry as Cielo combines its superior real-time analytics and reporting features with Qalif’s ultimate projection measurement technology which includes light uniformity, contrast, color calibration, projector focus and dual projector alignment. Qalif was developed by Highlands Technologies Solutions (HTS), while Harkness Screens owns the worldwide exclusive license to the technology.
The alliance between Cielo and Qalif allows greater operational efficiency and high-caliber image and sound optimization, resulting in an exceptional audiovisual experience for the movie audience.
“Our industry is constantly driven by the latest innovation in technology, so we must continue to evolve our business by anticipating our customer’s needs and enhancing the moviegoer’s experience,” said Guillermo Younger Jr., Cielo Founder. “This partnership with Qalif now allows us to ensure optimal screen up-time and the most stunning cinema projection within the range of operations supported by Cielo’s advanced mobile management capabilities and real-time monitoring solutions.”
In order to optimize screen projection, Qalif software can dynamically adjust the equipment settings such as focus and luminance, or alert the user when measurements are outside of set parameters. The integration with Cielo improves efficiency and offers greater visibility into systems operations by centralizing activity reports with other theater equipment. Qalif also provides audio measurement and control for 5.1, 7.1, and Dolby Atmos® sound systems.
“The fusion of Qalif and Cielo technologies provides a quantitative and more accurate approach to improving projection quality, and sets new standards for our industry,” said Patrick Zucchetta, CEO at HTS. “We are very pleased to count on an industry-leading ally like CE+S to undertake this important milestone.”
