CONTROL WHAT YOU PLAY ON EVERY SCREEN - VIRTUALLY
Your theatre network made virtual, The Link is the Middle East’s first fully-managed theatrical content delivery system. The revolutionary service aims to provide film exhibitors and distributors with a more controlled, time-efficient and costeffective means of managing the flow of content to audiences region-wide.
AN INTEGRATED SOLUTION FOR ALL THEATRES
The days of time-consuming manual tasks and redundant manpower are long behind us. The Link dramatically simplifies theatrical exhibition, migrating existing cinema circuits from a collection of individual multiplexes to an integrated network of screens.
BUILD BY THE INDUSTRY, FOR THE INDUSTRY
Designed from the ground up by industry experts with decades of experience in the local market, The Link uses secure encrypted servers on a fiber optic backbone provided by Etisalat. The service has already proven to be a success, its implementation throughout the region’s largest chain of cinemas (Novo Cinemas) having shown outstanding results.
DISCOVER THE BENEFITS TO YOUR BUSINESS
Controlled: A dedicated Control Booth ensures that your monitoring information is accessible only to you. What’s more, the “webbed” nature of the network means that each individual site is capable of transmitting to others in the unlikely event of Control Room malfunction.
Time-Efficient: Cut distribution time from weeks to hours and receive monitoring reports instantly. Real-time box office reports make it possible to react more quickly to performance results and make the necessary changes to cinema programmes across the network.
Cost-Effective: With DCP shipping and cloning costs removed from the equation, film distributors will feel the positive effects of The Link immediately. For exhibitors, the need for on-site projectionists becomes a thing of the past, dramatically reducing staff costs.
