Arts Alliance Media (AAM), the global leader in digital cinema software and services, have announced the launch of Screenlighter, a brand-new Theatre Management System (TMS) designed exclusively for small and independent cinemas.
Boasting fast operational speed, effective content management functionality, and a bright and effortless user interface, Screenlighter compacts the proficiency of Screenwriter, AAM’s world-renowned, flagship TMS, into a dashboard that solely meets the operational requirements of independent and 1-4 screen cinemas.
“We understand that for smaller cinema owners, finding a trusted and easy-to-use TMS toolset at the right price can be challenging,” explained Dale Miller, CCO at Arts Alliance Media. “That’s why, after analysing their essential workflows and listening to our global network of integrators and exhibition partners, we’ve deployed a dedicated solution that caters to their business needs.”
Available from 2023, Screenlighter will enable cinemas to evolve from manual operations to centrally managing their screens, content, and KDMs from one location, from playlist creation and on-screen content control, to reporting and real-time site monitoring. Furthermore, while combining a simple drag-and-drop playlist dashboard with intuitive navigation, Screenlighter’s contemporary light-mode UI symbolises clear distinction from existing entry-level TMS solutions to ensure a refreshing and effortless software experience.
As light in data size as it is in appearance, AAM’s new TMS package will easily install on cinemas’ existing hardware, meaning exhibitors can retain their current infrastructure to avoid unwanted equipment costs and enjoy simple, stress-free set-up.
Alan Bowen, GM and CFO at Arts Alliance Media, added, “until now, first-rate theatre management software had naturally aligned with the operational practices of global cinema organisations, leaving a large proportion of the market in need of a reliable TMS that simplifies daily workflows.
With flexible onboarding and the support of our growing global NOC team, small and independent cinemas can count on Screenlighter to help transform business operations.”
