Spitz' ATM-4 Theater Automation System combines theater automation and show production in one powerful, easy to use program. ATM-4 show control software incorporates a graphic, intuitive user environment for creating and modifying multimedia presentations.
ATM-4 supports all Spitz products including motion-control of Spitz and Goto Chronos star instruments, instrument elevator control, LEDCove lighting sequences, audio and more. ATM-4's custom control screens operate many of the functions in Starry Night Dome. These virtual control panels operate realtime features in Starry Night, and allow scripting of Starry Night effects into complete planetariums shows. ATM-4 also allows users to fade, zoom and slew digital movies and stills anywhere on the dome screen during Starry Night presentations.
ATM-4 utilizes a high-speed computer for show scripting and device control. Unlike other systems that use a scripted, cue-based editor, ATM-4 uses a graphical timeline for rapid placement and cut-and-paste of show segments. ATM-4 controls the entire theater allowing precise synchronization of audio, video, multi-image, lighting and other devices in a reliable, simple fashion.
