CinemaNext Signs Agreement with Austrian Cinema Chain Cineplexx for Melody TMS and Symphony Circuit Management Software

CinemaNext (Ymagis Group – ISIN: FR0011471291 TICKER: MAGIS), the specialist in exhibitor services for the motion picture industry, today announced an agreement with Austrian cinema chain Cineplexx, a subsidiary of Constantin Film Holding GmbH., to deploy the company’s proprietary Melody Theatre Management System (TMS) and Symphony circuit management software across its entire network. 

This represents a total of 228 screens and 31 different sites. The roll-out is expected to begin this summer at all Cineplexx cinemas located in Austria, Italy, Croatia, Albania, Montenegro and Serbia.
 
The deal was concluded during last week’s CineEurope, the European convention for major, regional and independent cinema exhibitors, in Barcelona (Spain).
 
“Selecting both Melody TMS and Symphony is a tremendous vote of confidence for our technologies from Cineplexx, which is known for being at the forefront of technological innovations in Europe,” explains Christof Federle, CinemaNext Regional Manager for Austria and Eastern Europe. “Currently operating on 1,300 screens, Melody is a fully-featured TMS at the cutting edge of technology. We are constantly working to adapt this solution to exhibitors’ evolving needs such as the upcoming mobile app, which allows users to transform the auditorium into a conference room by controlling every feature (projection, sound, light). Our brand new software solution for cinema chains, Symphony, helps connect, visualize and oversee a widespread group of cinema complexes from one central site resulting in significant time savings by allowing users to remotely schedule all shows for their cinema network”.
 
“We are thrilled to strengthen our collaboration with CinemaNext by deploying their innovative proprietary Symphony and Melody TMS solutions in our cinemas,” said Christian Langhammer, Managing Director of Constantin Film Group in Austria. “The fact that these new reliable solutions have been designed and produced from an exhibitor perspective to be as intuitive as possible as well as allow the automation of many time-consuming and error-prone processes is essential to delivering trouble-free and superior cinematic experiences to moviegoers.”
                               
The Melody TMS is compatible with any third-party software (e.g., digital signage, points of sale), making it fully automated and therefore requiring less human intervention. It is also interoperable with all existing server technologies. Symphony provides a real-time monitoring interface that allows exhibitors to ensure cinemas are running smoothly and help detect any potential errors. Later this year, local cinema exhibitors will no longer need to spend time programming every week as they will have the ability to use centralized playlists and schedules created by central booking department across all cinemas.
