Launch a Digital Cinema

Digital cinema is an OTT service that provide Video-on-Demand, the possibility to watch movies and TV-shows online. In the era when analogue television and home cinema theatres are moving to the backstage, digital cinemas are becoming as popular as never before both for media/telecom companies and for content consumers.

For content aggregators digital-cinema is an opportunity to share their content with the audience and monetize it. For Cable TV operators it is the way to keep the position on the market. For new companies it's the chance to enter a promising market.


What Does the Launch of Digital Cinema or OTT Service Gives to Your Company?

Now

Video service provider manages the Digital cinema on his own conditions. VoD service helps you to provide access to content from different end-user devices and monetize content according to the chosen business-model. Presence on video streaming market strengths the reputation of content-aggregators and ensures constant customer flow from selling the content using B2C model. For startup studios which produce content, the availability of their own video service, firstly, forms the brand and, secondly, ensures revenue growth.

In the future

With further expansion the service covers more geographical markets, becoming a strong player (like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu or Disney+), or can be acquired by a large Telecom Operator.

What Is Needed for Launching a Digital Cinema?

First of all, you should decide which type of system deployment fits you:

  1. On the cloud;
  2. On your premises;
  3. Mixed structure (management system is offered from the cloud, but VoD and streaming servers are installed on premises).
In order to launch Digital cinema, you will need: a management system, a multiplatform player, VoD servers, and media servers.

We use our own management system Telebreeze Middleware, a full-featured tool for managing IPTV/OTT business. Through the Middleware a service provider manages content and subscribers, DRM, monetization services, statistics, subscribers' personal areas.

Multiplatform player supports all of the most popular users platforms: Smart TVs, set-top-boxes, mobile devices, PC, media players — tvOS, Roku, Amazon FireTV.

Telebreeze VoD Server is a program package for the content preparation and distribution which allows the viewer to watch the content in good quality from any end-user device — Smart TV, tablet, smartphone - regardless of place, time and internet-connection speed.

Content Delivery Network (CDN) — is a geographically distributed group of servers for fast data transmission (HTML-pages, JavaScript files, style sheets, images and videos) needed for the internet-content downloading.

What Else Can We Do at This Stage?

Together with you, we determine the business model of the service – SVoD, TVoD, AVoD or another.
  • AVoD (Advertising Video on Demand) – the content is offered for free with advertising while watching.
  • SVoD (Subscription Video on Demand) – paid content by subscriptions. The user buys a subscription and watches all the included content.
  • TVoD (Transactional Video on Demand) – the content is rented for the certain time period or number of views.
