Weischer.Media launches a certification programme for Theatre Management System suppliers. The initiative aims to clarify to exhibitors which TMS solutions are compatible with Weischer.Media’s sophisticated and highly-automated digital cinema advertising solution, CINEMA.RELOADED™.
CINEMA.RELOADED™ is an evolving product from Weischer.Media that is prevalent across Germany and Switzerland that offers ever more intelligent and effective cinema advertising. It aims to rival the sophistication of digital on-line adverting whilst maintaining the classic qualities of cinema—adding proven value to the medium.
“This will position cinemas optimally for the digital advertising future that meets the needs of the advertising industry: more flexibility, transparency and accuracy.” says Stefan Kuhlow, Chief Digital Officer of Weischer.Media. “So far, CINEMA.RELOADED™ has been a very welcome innovation by our exhibitor partners and it has brought cinema advertising in Germany and Switzerland back to its old strength. We are dedicated towards its future development and potential applicability to the wider markets.”
“CINEMA.RELOADED™ requires specific capabilities from the entire system from client to cinemagoer.” says Managing Director of Weischer.Media’s development partner Cinedavis, Dr. Marlon Teichfuss, also responsible for the ONEDCN™ pre-show technology network and interfaces. He adds: ”CINEMA.RELOADED™” is an ever evolving mechanism and “CINEMA.RELOADED™ ready” TMS certification aims to map future innovation to an up-to-date technology infrastructure.”
“TMS solutions that are certified as CINEMA.RELOADED™ ready will offer re-assurance to exhibitors that this important element of their wider system is compatible to the current needs of a CINEMA.RELOADED™ pre-show.” says Julian Pinn, Managing Director of Julian Pinn Ltd and strategic consultant to Weischer.Media. “So far the desire to join this initiative by leading TMS suppliers currently present in the German market has been very encouraging. We expect to be able to make further announcement in due course."
