The British Board of Film Certification has purchased RosettaBridge™ Theatre Management System developed by Unique Digital Ltd as an integral part of their digital preview theater operation. All feature films, short films and trailers which are shown theatrically must be classified by the BBFC and will be ingested and managed via the TMS.
RosettaBridge is a full featured TMS providing BBFC management and staff with an unrivaled suite of tools to manage film and advertising content through an intuitive and easy to use interface. Key features include a scalable library server, agnostic player and projector interface, automation control and content distribution with all elements being managed using a simple drag and drop GUI.
The installation carried out by Sound Associates at the BBFC headquarters in Soho Square London allows transfer of content and keys between the TMS Library and Dolby server and will also provide an ingest port for content delivered remotely across a secure network. Managers and Staff can view and operate the system securely from any network connected PC in the building.
“The BBFC have seen a huge rise in the number of digital film prints, trailers and advertising content and we realized we needed a theatre management system to ensure we could continue to offer our customers an efficient and reliable screening service” commented Dave Barret Head of Operations, adding “we looked at a number of TMS systems on the market and liked the fact that RosettaBridge operated on an enterprise class server running Linux coupled with a very user friendly screen interface. We will also be able to offer our customers a secure and reliable remote delivery service.”
“With the rise in digital film screenings and the need to retain quick access to certain films for repeat viewings, often at short notice, we were in desperate need of a large library” said Alan Burkey, chief projectionist at the BBFC. “The RosettaBridge TMS provides this for us and we have found the operator interface and features such as KDM management very easy to use”.
Rod Wheeler, Sales and Marketing Director of Unique Digital Ltd commented, “We are delighted to be working with the BBFC. The certification process is the starting point for all film and advertising content distribution and the BBFC staff are often working against tight deadlines – using our RosettaBridge TMS provides them quick access to the content and the ability to manage the secure keys efficiently.”
