Barco designs technology to enable bright outcomes. Beyond the image, we develop sight, sound, and sharing solutions to help you work together, share insights, and wow audiences. Our focus is on three core markets: Enterprise (meeting and corporate spaces, control rooms), Healthcare (radiology, clinical specialties, operating rooms), and Entertainment (movie theaters, live events, attractions).
Pausing a movie in the middle of an action scene or turning the room lights on before the end credits start to roll can spoil your audience’s movie experience.
The new software version 1.3.2 of the Barco Alchemy ICMP allows you to automate more and do it better too. You can now exactly tune what’s going on in your theater – lights going on, curtains opening etc. – to the movie content, instead of just choosing a time code in your show.
Now you can:
Define the best moment to use cues in your playlist
Reposition your content in the right place with image on screen
Copy the exact point in time
Reuse this point in time to easily create the cues
