NCA30 front


Introducing the latest automation from Pennywise Peripherals, the NCA30. This automation has been designed from the ground up for digital cinema projection in the 21st century. Built on the experience gained from the hugely successful CAPIO series automations (CA21, CA100 & EMK1), this automation is the missing piece of the puzzle for modern projection systems.

With cinemas facing the challenge of controlling new digital projection equipment, together with existing equipment, the NCA30 is the "swiss army pocket knife" of cinema automation.
