Automate more and better with Barco Alchemy

Barco Alchemy: reposition on pause
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
