Technology and New Products

Unique X announced its continued expansion into the North American cinema market with an agreement to provide its autonomous digital cinema systems to one of Canada’s largest entertainment and media companies, Cineplex.

The combination of Unique X’s RosettaBridge TMS, RosettaNet eTMS, Movie Transit DCP delivery network and Advertising Accord onscreen advertising manager will deliver a fully automated, networked advertising solution to Cineplex’s network of 165 theatres from coast-to-coast. It will also be offered to the company’s exhibitor partners and independent theatres represented by Cineplex Media, its business division dedicated to media sales, engagement and advertising solutions.

Cineplex is Canada’s largest film exhibitor, welcoming more than 70 million guests annually. The new agreement with Unique X will enable the creation of custom advertising packages, automating the cinema advertising process and delivering ad content directly to the screen.

“Our worldwide customers are already reaping the benefits of our automated solutions, so we are naturally delighted to support Cineplex in driving operational and media sales efficiencies for their leading network of theatres from coast to coast in Canada,” said Mark Stephen, director of sales at Unique X.

"We are excited about the prospect of Unique X’s fully automated solution for advertising scheduling and content delivery direct to the theatre screen, significantly reducing our window from contract to deployment and enhancing inventory yield management and campaign targeting,” said Robert Brown, VP, Cineplex Media.  “We are committed to delivering an exceptional guest experience in our theatres and this solution helps us do that while driving operational efficiencies for media sales, theatre management, and more flexible options for our advertising clients.”
