The development of cinema Control Panel programm for 5D cinema

By order of the animatronics supplying company we developed the CinemaControlPanel program for a 5D movie theater system. It allows controlling reproduction of movies, special effects and platform movement in a cinema hall. The software was implemented using cross-platform library Qt 4.7 and DirectShow technology.

Cinema Control Panel key characteristics for 5D movie theater

    • Control: touch screen or computer mouse
    • Selection of movies from a convenient list with posters and detailed description
    • Display of the current time of 5D movie reproduction
    • Russian and English interface support
  • Video / Audio operation
    • Video output from a cinema hall camera to an external monitor of a 5D movie theater
    • DVD video recording capability from a camera in a cinema hall
    • Support of an external monitor for installation near a 5D movie theater
    • Transmission of MP3 files in a cinema hall — for a greeting or advertisements
