FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Moving iMage Technologies (NYSE American: MITQ) (“MiT”), a leading digital cinema technology company, today announced it will be hosting a factory open house, including technology demonstrations on Thursday, January 20, 2022, following the International Cinema Technology Association (ICTA) Seminars in Los Angeles, CA from Janunary 17-19, 2022.
Demonstrations will include MITs’ cutting-edge, new multi-language translator, a revolutionary system that enables outreach to an untapped customer base of non-native language proficient customers. For example, in the United States alone, there are an estimated 70 million people who have a primary language other than English. This disruptive, new technology is a user-friendly and unobtrusive outreach tool that will allow theatre owners access to an untapped customer base enabling an enhanced cinema experience to a much broader audience.
Features of the new multi-language translator include the following:
Enabling multi-language screenings – the system leverages Augmented Reality (AR) glasses to allow multi-language screening capabilities live and in the same auditorium
Americans with Disability Act (ADA) compliance – the system also facilitates sign language and meets other ADA compliance requirements enabling a higher-level cinematic experience for the hearing impaired
Global potential – The system is language-agnostic, allowing for international films to be shown in the original language of the film, while also offering multi-language capabilities to the audience regardless of the film’s original production language
The system will include AR glasses, combined with a monthly, recurring subscription to the translator service. MIT has previously demonstrated this product at trade shows and is planning pilot trials with exhibitors in early 2022.
