Arts Alliance Media (AAM) has been selected by AMC Theatres to manage approximately 2,600 digital cinema screens in the USA using their Screenwriter Theatre Management System (TMS). Screenwriter will provide a foundation for AMC to achieve a greater automation of its digital cinema operations.
With the end of the Virtual Print Fee (VPF) programs, it allows for the beginning of a technology refresh in cinema. Mark Latimer, Vice President, Sight, and Sound at AMC said that “AAM and AMC share a very similar vision for the future of digital cinema, it was no surprise that they could deliver what we needed – a solution that undertakes the core tasks of a TMS, but also offers significant additional value and provides the foundations for future innovation”.
With over 75 million shows successfully delivered to screens a year, Screenwriter is one of the world’s most widely deployed TMSs.
Screenwriter will give AMC complete visibility and control over content, KDMs (Key Delivery Messages), and real-time playback information from all screens, allowing for any problems to be spotted and resolved quickly and easily.
