Arts Alliance Media and Motion Picture Solutions Offer the Strongest Cinema Content Delivery Solution Yet with Screenwriter and LANsat

Digital cinema software provider Arts Alliance Media (AAM) and content services company Motion Picture Solutions (MPS), are to offer an improved seamless content delivery service to exhibitors with a combination of the LANsat library management server and the Screenwriter TMS (Theatre Management System). With Screenwriter installed on each LANsat server, exhibitors can now receive content and automated KDMs sent electronically and manage content easily through an intuitive interface, distributing it throughout a site, ready to play out on screen.
  
As part of the recently announced deal in which MPS acquired the Content Services division of AAM, the companies are collaborating to offer the strongest solutions for digital cinema content delivery and content management, utilising AAM’s expertise in exhibitor-side software and MPS’s leading position with hardware for electronic delivery. 
 
LANsat offers all the ease and flexibility of an off-the-shelf consumer satellite box, with the quality and reliability of a professional solution for exhibitors to receive live events via satellite or content sent electronically. A simple to use interface allows cinema owners to tune into an event cinema satellite transmission locally at an individual site, or manage the broadcast for multiple cinemas from one central location. Exhibitors can play the broadcast out on screen or store it for later, and track the progress of content arriving electronically. Once delivered, content can be stored on the huge 24TB server or be transferred at the touch of a button to screens throughout the complex. 
 
The Screenwriter TMS, already installed on 20,000 cinema screens worldwide, provides complete control of all screens and content from a single easy-to-use interface, while also automating many time-consuming digital cinema processes. Screenwriter’s advanced features mean content is automatically transferred to the appropriate screens based on the schedule, saving time and eliminating human error. 
 
Advertising is also made even easier with LANsat and Screenwriter. Advertising content delivered straight to LANsat is automatically inserted into playlist templates built in Screenwriter, fully automating a previously time-consuming and error-prone process. 
 
Eric Stevens, Commercial Director of Arts Alliance Media said “Bringing the power of Screenwriter to the technology of LANsat means an unparalleled solution for exhibitors. Electronic and satellite delivery of content already makes exhibitors’ lives easier by eliminating hard drives with all the hassle of ingest and return they entail, and now receiving and distributing content in your cinema couldn’t be easier. Screenwriter’s automation functions mean staff can spend more time with customers, focusing on the cinematic experience.” 
 
Simon Tandy, Director of MPS added “Receiving and managing content for your cinema is now as easy as operating your satellite box at home, but with all the quality and support you expect from a professional solution. With the increasing popularity of event cinema, LANsat makes it simple for any cinema to offer great content to the audience, either controlling it all themselves or taking advantage of a complete managed solution. Everything is web-based, meaning you can be in control of all your cinema’s content from wherever you are, and get content onto your screens with the absolute minimum of effort.” 
 
Distributors can be reassured that the combined offering of LANsat and Screenwriter provides an even more seamless content delivery service. Whether the chain is managed by MPS from mastering to delivery, or working with third party labs or satellite providers, LANsat and Screenwriter provides studio-approved SLAs and full delivery verification and reporting. 
 
Arts Alliance Media will be at booth #601 at CineEurope in Barcelona from June 16th – 19th.
Motion Picture Solutions will be available at the ECA Lounge, CCIB, Level 1, Room 128
