The New Industry Standard
HYBRID AND VIRTUAL CINEMA
Movies Everywhere aims to enhance outreach to more audiences, enrich the interactive experience and help its filmmakers create additional revenue streams.
What is Movies Everywhere?
Movies Everywhere is the new industry standard for virtual and hybrid screenings and professional screeners. It helps film festivals, film organizations, cinematheques, distributors, educational institutions and independent filmmakers to create highly engaging, interactive online screening events. Our main concept is that every screening is an 'event'. An event means that registration, Q&A, audience chat and live video from external sources are all taking place inside the screening page. Movies Everywhere is an all in one solution, managed from your browser, from media management to audience tracking, monetization, rich interactive elements and provision of support.
INVITE, REMIND, SCREEN, INTERACT
Push distribution forward
Many right-holders are concerned that online screenings might impede their efforts to sign distribution deals or violate existing agreements. Movies Everywhere overcomes this obstacle by providing you with the following tools: Control over the number of viewers per screening. Fine grained IP blocking, down to the city or district level. Advanced download and anti-piracy protection.
Let's first assume that people are not afraid anymore of attending public events. Once that fear diminishes, the world will probably enter a new era, in which some people would always prefer to watch from home. In other words, those people would probably not arrive at the theatre anyway. So why give up on them? - We suggest to relate to Movies Everywhere as your additional venue or facility.
Bring the magic
A festival or a public screening are magical: many people gather at the same time, lining up near the entrance to the movie theater, taking their seats, waiting for the screening of a new film to begin. A sense of anticipation and excitement, whereby the screening is followed by a Q&A session, in which the audience can meet the filmmakers . Movies Everywhere aspires to follow that spirit through online screenings. The process begins with pre-registration and confirmation a few days in advance, then a reminder is sent to viewers before the screening, which invites them to a branded screening page. The screening starts exactly at the set time and is followed by an online Q&A session, which takes place in the same page.
No one film can be fully protected. But we do our best. There are two ways to pirate a film: finding the path to the source file and recording the screen. As for the first method, we encrypt the source and obfuscate the link to the the decrypting index file, a method used in all DRM systems. As for the second (recording the screen), we place a personalized watermark on screen, with the details of each viewer. If the screen is recorded, the details of the recording user cannot be erased.
