Birmingham, AL -- Media systems integrator, MediaMerge, has entered into a multi-year agreement to provide technical support for the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry's IMAX Dome Theater in Chicago, IL. MediaMerge, in cooperation with the IMAX Corporation, will be responsible for providing preventative maintenance and technical support for the theater's sound and projection systems.
Under the agreement, MediaMerge provides a technician to meet the requirements of the IMAX Service Partnership Program. In this arrangement, the theater operates as usual, and MediaMerge provides 24-hour phone support, preventative maintenance and emergency service visits. The theater still has a service agreement directly with IMAX, while MediaMerge provides the labor at a significant savings. IMAX provides all replacement parts, phone support and limited on-site service.
