CMS-3000

Web-based Central Management Enterprise Software
CMS-3000

Your comprehensive solution to manage screenings across an entire cinema circuit from its headquarters

Overview

CMS-3000 is an enterprise software which enables centralized management of content transfer, screen advertisements and program schedule, allowing the remote cinema headquarters or support center to have control and visibility of the entire circuit. It helps achieve high operational efficiency by:

  • integrating seamlessly with an exhibitor’s pre-show advertising and entertainment program to streamline the advertising workflow;
  • allowing any circuit with multiple locations to help eliminate redundant time and labor spent on the same routine tasks with local Theatre Management System TMS-2000 and/or Cinema Automation CA2.0;
  • supporting multiple user access simultaneously anytime and anywhere with its web-based application.
