Arts Alliance Media and Ster-Kinekor Announce Digitisation Plan

South Africa’s number one exhibitor to be fully converted to digital
Arts Alliance Media (AAM) and South Africa’s leading exhibitor Ster-Kinekor have announced a partnership for digital conversion of all of Ster-Kinekor’s sites across the country. 
 
The deal will see Ster-Kinekor’s estate of more than 400 screens converted to digital within the next 12 months. AAM and Ster-Kinekor are currently working together to establish the optimum equipment configuration for the new installations, and the rollout is expected to begin shortly. In addition to digital cinema hardware, all of Ster Kinekor’s 54 sites will be installed with AAM’s proprietary TMS software, Screenwriter, to efficiently manage all digital screens and content. 
 
Arts Alliance Media is currently finalising VPF (Virtual Print Fee) deals for South Africa with the Hollywood studios, and is expected to make further announcements within the coming weeks. 
 
Chief Executive Officer of Ster-Kinekor, Fiaz Mahomed, said, “Converting to digital is a critical step in the progression of Ster-Kinekor as we continue to grow our business and continue to lead South Africa’s exhibition industry.  We’re delighted to announce this deal with AAM – we’ve seen their experience in Europe and are looking forward to their expertise helping us become 100% digital.” 
 
Chief Executive Officer of Arts Alliance Media, Howard Kiedaisch said, “With AAM’s market-leading experience in Europe, and having recently confirmed our international expansion to Latin America with our announcement of a VPF deal with Sony Pictures, we see South Africa as another key territory where a VPF program could bring tremendous value and Ster-Kinekor is a fantastic first partner to be working with”. 
 
AAM’s Director of Business Development and Commercial Operations, Giovanni Dolci, added, “We have been working closely with Fiaz and his team to devise a solution that would meet Ster-Kinekor’s needs and we are thrilled to announce this deal to support their digital conversion. Ster-Kinekor is one of the global leaders in cinema and we look forward to working with them to continue to advance digital cinema in South Africa.”
