Arts Alliance Media (AAM), the global leader in digital cinema software and support services, have announced a new partnership with KDKinotec, a UK-based reseller and service provider specialising in independent and outdoor cinemas.
Signing for a license of AAM’s Screenwriter Theatre Management System (TMS), KDKinotec will implement automated content management for greater operational efficiency at six Nightflix and two Strawberry Moon venues, who each become the first outdoor theatres in the UK to use the specialised TMS. As part of the deal, Screenwriter will also power The Castle Cinema, an independent in East London, as they too look to centralise their management of daily content.
“We’re thrilled to be installing Screenwriter at each of the sites we service, and to ensure they become the first outdoor venues in the UK to do so”, said Dave Jones, Co-Founder and Lead Engineer at KDKinotec. “We’ve used Screenwriter for many years now and its simple interface, integration with new technologies, and compatibility with projection equipment means it has remained our TMS of choice.”
AAM’s Screenwriter is the most powerful, widely deployed TMS in the world and is used at over 45,000 screens worldwide. Responsible for scheduling features, trailers, and advertisements, monitoring screens and controlling playback, Screenwriter provides exhibitors with comprehensive content management from one central hub within each of their theatres.
Jennifer Morgan, Sales Director for EMEA at Arts Alliance Media, added, “I’m delighted that KDKinotec have chosen AAM as their software partner. To attract the first UK outdoor theatres onto Screenwriter as we extend our reach with local independents truly signifies both the strength and dynamism of our TMS, and our eagerness to ensure solutions are compatible with all forms of theatre.
We look forward to a long and successful partnership with KDKinotec.”
