Cinergy is a powerful solution that gives its users the possibility to transform the operation of their rooms and to make the most of their potential, through centralized control and real-time management of data and reports. We are excited to welcome DCIP employees as software or business developers, and in sales or operational support roles."
Rich Manzione, CEO of Digital Cinema Implementation Partners, commented: "Christie's purchase of our Cinergy software ensures a smooth transition and a strong future for DCIP's customers and partners. Christie has an extensive track record of supporting film exhibition, which coupled with his experience with remote monitoring ensures the continuation of Cinergy's growth and the software's ability to adapt to the evolution of cinema and other sectors."
