3 cinema software streamline your cinema's day-to-day operation
Improving digital cinema operations efficiency with software is the key to success in the cinema industry. For more than 17 years, GDC has developed revolutionary enterprise software to efficiently manage, monitor, and support the digital cinema equipment from one local cinema to an entire cinema chain, these include TMS, NOC, and CMS software. Typically, a local cinema multiplex manages its digital cinema operations with the TMS software and TmsAware™ APP on mobile phones, while cinema circuits improve efficiency and drive down cost with a centralized NOC software and CMS software installed either in their headquarters or at a third-party support center. Regardless, they are linked up over the internet with GDC’s cloud service – Zeus.
GDC award-winning Theatre Management System (TMS) software was first deployed in 2004. As of April 2022, GDC TMS software has an installed base of 35,000+ screens across 4,900+ theatres worldwide and is ranked within the top 3 globally. It is a comprehensive solution that provides centralized control over the entire digital cinema operation to manage movie content, digital cinema equipment, and more. Its mobile APP TmsAware allows users to monitor all theatre operations and receive push notifications while on the move.
Both GDC Central Management Software (CMS) and Network Operations Center software (NOC) are web-based, the cinema headquarters or support center personnel is able to manage the digital cinema operations for the entire cinema chain remotely. GDC NOC software completely monitors and maintains all major brands of projection equipment and other SNMP-enabled devices in the entire cinema chain, and it tracks every equipment maintenance job. GDC CMS software enables centralized management of content transfer, screen advertisements, and program schedules. It can be customized to seamlessly integrate with the exhibitor’s screen advertisement subsystem.
