GDC Technology Integrates Screenvision Media preshow with its Advanced Theatre Management System

GDC TMS2000 and CA2.0 provides Screenvision Media customers with innovative capabilities, including automatic show playlist generation and template to insert preshow advertisements

LAS VEGAS, April 25, 2018 GDC Technology Limited, a leading global provider of digital cinema solutions, announced today the completed integration of its TMS2000 Theatre Management System(TMS2000) with the Screenvision Media preshow. The integration enables automated ingestion and programming of ad content directly from Screenvision Media’s server to GDC’s new Cinema Automation CA2.0 and its TMS2000, the second most deployed theatre management system solution globally. The integration provides Screenvision Media’s network of exhibitors with preshow trimming functionality to maximize the time available for preshow advertising between every show. This is a major milestone for Screenvision Media as many of our customers have deployed GDC’s robust theatre management system. The integration of GDC with our preshow delivery provides the U.S. market with alternatives when creating a fully integrated cinema workflow,” said Mike Henry, SVP of Information Technology at Screenvision Media.

“We’ve enjoyed a long history with GDC and are looking forward to working with their technical and sales teams to continually improve the Screenvision Media preshow experience at GDC sites. This successful integration allows the GDC footprint with their TMS to have full functionality of rating targets, feature targets, and preshow trimming capabilities,” said Darryl Schaffer, Executive Vice President, Operations and Exhibitor Relations of Screenvision Media.

The TMS2000s robust capabilities include integrated screen monitoring, with playback and equipment status displayed from a single access point; an enhanced Content Manager, which enables centralized management of content and KDM; a smarter Show Scheduler, which gives alerts regarding missing CPL or invalid KDM; and Smart Restore, a function that makes server replacement easy and instant. Meanwhile, Quality Manager is an optional module that brings users excellent value in ensuring the right level of projector brightness, crisp color, and crystalclear audio. In addition, a newly developed mobile app extends theatre management to mobile platforms for complete ease of use.

The newest features include:

  • Template Systemautomatic generation of show playlist based on POS show title, showtimes, and screen’s capability
  • Automated PreShowa template to insert advertisement and trailer automatically according to given rules
  • Automatic KDM Ingestionvia USB key

Since the launch of the TMS2000 at CineAsia 2014, the list of U.S. exhibitors who solely rely upon it to provide simple and efficient centralized management has grown exponentially. Accordingly, integrating with a leading provider, like Screenvision Media, makes perfect sense for GDC. GDC TMS installations are now able to ‘switch on’ automated preshow integration with Screenvision Media. The compliance of ad playlist delivery is now in place for nearly 1,000 screens with GDC products and Screenvision Media,” said Annie Wang, executive vice president of GDC Technology (USA) LLC.
