AAM lands further digital cinema deals in Latin America


London—Arts Alliance Media (AAM), together with Latin American partners Quanta-DGT and Bardan, has signed VPF (virtual print fee) deals for digital cinema rollout in Uruguay, increasing the company’s footprint in the expanding Latin American digital cinema market.

The exhibitors that have signed up to the deal—Movie, Life Cinemas and Grupo Cine—represent a combined 61 screens across Uruguay. All screens are already installed with digital cinema projectors, but will be brought under the AAM/Quanta-DGT VPF scheme, and central rack equipment will be supplied and installed at each site by Bardan.

Under the deal, each exhibitor site will be equipped with AAM’s Screenwriter TMS (theatre management system) to manage content, playlists and scheduling across all screens. Over 20,000 screens worldwide already use the software to automate their processes. To provide equipment monitoring and support, Bardan will provide a full NOC (network operations centre) service to Movie, Life Cinemas and Grupo Cine.
