INTEG provides a full suite of solutions to make digital cinema automation easier and more cost-effective than ever before. The JNIOR programmable cinema automation controller makes it possible to connect a modern digital projection system to the theater infrastructure (lights, sound, etc.) and enables a fully automated presentation. It’s simply the most affordable, flexible network automation interface available for cinema.
The JNIOR works with a variety of digital cinema players, including:
It’s compact and easy to install — it’s easier to connect the field wires from lights, curtains and other sources to the JNIOR than a General Purpose Input/Output (GPIO) and the JNIOR provides better electrical isolation.
It’s reliable — the JNIOR has been field-proven in theaters around the world and is designed to provide years of continuous, reliable operation.
It makes both Ethernet and RS232 serial communications possible — control and status signals can be sent over the Ethernet network and/or via a RS232 serial connection to your digital cinema server.
Theaters worldwide of all sizes are using the JNIOR to simplify digital cinema automation. Some of our clients include:
It’s flexible — with the optional JNIOR Control Panel, push buttons and LED lights are available to provide manual control and status displays. The Control Panel is completely user-configurable, providing the ultimate in flexibility.
It offers lots of options — the JNIOR offers more I/O – and a better mix of it – than a GPIO and offers add-on software packages to provide more functionality. It handles more relay outputs and higher voltages and has an expansion module for analog signals.
It’s expandable — the JNIOR contains 8 digital outputs, 8 relay outputs and 2 serial ports. The “plug and play” Relay Output Expansion Module allows additional outputs to be added in groups of 4 with either low voltage or high voltage contacts. You can cost-effectively handle a variety of theater configurations with 8, 12 or 16 outputs.
The JNIOR meets all of your cinema automation needs and then some. The JNIOR easily connects to your digital cinema server to provide control of your lights, sound, etc., and provide feedback about signals such as fire alarms. But, with INTEG’s free add-on software, the JNIOR can also handle a variety of special or advanced cinema automation issues.
CINEMA.JNIOR software allows the JNIOR to act as a central automation controller, using macros to time output control, send commands to digital projectors, sound processors and other devices and integrate with pre-show systems.
The Task Manager software allows you to create tasks that can either be triggered by an event or based on the time of day. Each task can include one or more actions that can control outputs, log data or even send e-mails.
The JNIOR Support Tool is a PC-based software package that helps you configure your JNIORs, develop macros for CINEMA.JNIOR, review logs, back up files and update your JNIOR with new or additional software.
The JNIOR has many features that make it ideal for use in digital cinema automation. There are two models available, both of which work equally well with the Control Panel and Expansion Modules.
Key hardware features include:
The JNIOR Control Panel makes it possible for you to add switches to trigger status LEDs, alarm horns or “macros” you’ve developed. You define all the functions via the JNIOR Support Tool and the CINEMA.JNIOR application.
With the Power 4 Relay Output “plug and play” Expansion Module, you can easily add more relay outputs capable of handling 120/240 VAC @ 10 amps. The relays on these modules contain both normally open and normally closed contacts for additional flexibility.
You can easily add more relay outputs with the 4 Relay Output “plug and play” Expansion Module. The contacts on these modules can be configured as “normally open” or “normally closed,” providing additional flexibility.
With the Analog Expansion Module, the JNIOR can control lighting systems that are controlled by a 0-10 VDC (or 4-20 mA) signal. The Analog Presets Program can be added to the JNIOR, allowing the device to set various lighting levels.
