MetaMedia’s revolutionary cloud-based MetaMedia Entertainment Network ™ continues to flawlessly deliver content to cinemas, drive-ins, and other out-of-home venues
With movie theaters reopening across the country and movie lovers rushing back to the big screen, MetaMedia, one of the world’s fastest-growing entertainment technology companies, is well-positioned to meet resurgent demand. An innovative and industry-leading company, MetaMedia’s cloud-based technology delivers live and recorded content to cinemas, drive-ins and other out-of-home venues and ensures the rapid, secure and cost-effective delivery of movies, live-streamed events, trailers and other big-screen content.
Over the last two years, MetaMedia secured partnerships with several well-known North American cinema chains, such as Cinemark USA, Inc. (the third largest exhibitor in the US and fourth largest globally), Cinépolis USA Movie Theaters and Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas (the largest cinema chain in Mexico and fifth largest exhibitor globally), Landmark Cinemas of Canada (the second largest motion picture theatre exhibition company in Canada), Emagine Entertainment (the first chain in the world to convert to 100 percent digital projection), and the Independent Cinema Alliance (an association of 140 member-independent cinemas operating approximately 400 cinemas and over 2,600 screens in the U.S. and Canada).
“Our technologies provide our partners with many of the economic, operational and programming benefits that the industry envisioned with the roll-out of digital cinema over a decade ago,” said MetaMedia CEO Jason Brenek.
In addition to partnerships with exhibitors, MetaMedia has delivered a wide variety of movies from multiple major Hollywood studios. MetaMedia has also initiated groundbreaking partnerships with content partners such as HarenaData (a gaming community aggregation company), MacGillivray Freeman Films (the world’s foremost independent producer and distributor of original giant-screen 70mm films), and EncoreLive (a company that serves as the connection point between artists, brands, and individuals to create unique concert experiences for fans).
Partnering with MetaMedia has allowed content providers to expand the reach of their offerings. Through the partnership with MetaMedia, Harena Data launched StudioGYO powered by MetaMedia, a platform to deliver e-sports content to the MetaMedia Entertainment Network™. Similarly, MetaMedia’s partnership with MacGillivray Freeman Films expands the reach of MacGillivray’s digital content, bringing educational films to conventional commercial cinemas and drive-ins for group and educational screenings. Likewise, MetaMedia’s partnership with Encore Live through Encore Drive-in-Nights allowed the flawless delivery of UFC events as well as concerts from artists including Florida Georgia Line and Bon Jovi. MetaMedia’s cloud-based technology has allowed each of these content partners to revolutionize the way they deliver content.
MetaMedia also recently announced that it expanded its cloud-based entertainment network in less than a year to more than 1,000 screens across the U.S. and Canada, which covers nearly all of the top 50 largest U.S. cities and makes it the largest cloud-based delivery network to venues across North America. Despite a global pandemic and periodic industry shutdowns, MetaMedia continues to be one of America’s fastest-growing entertainment technology companies. With more than 5,000 cinema screens in its backlog and a recent investment from Pixelogic, MetaMedia anticipates tripling its network size by the fourth quarter.
