Intelligent Trailer Scheduling System to the Dutch Market
Dublin, Ireland — April 22, 2021 — Unique X, leading international cinema software company, is proud to announce the completion of a 3 year agreement with Pathé Netherlands for the deployment of Unique X’s pre-show management solution, Smart Trailering; which will be deployed across all screens within Pathé’s Dutch estate.
Smart Trailering is a fully automated and centralized trailer scheduling system that automatically places the right trailers before the right movies, ensuring operational efficiency. Featuring a sophisticated centralized content scheduling system, Smart Trailering empowers cinemas to be able to automatically schedule trailers in a sophisticated manner previously impossible through manual programming.
Key features include optimized use of available pre-show capacity allowing the user the ability to schedule and target individual playlists for each and every show. The Smart Trailering logic creates trailer campaigns based on targeting to film, number of showings, location, day and time; additionally preventing errors such as certification, duplicate placement and wrong trailer versions.
The network wide deployment of the Smart Trailering solution will complement the existing Unique X services currently deployed to Pathé Netherlands – including; RosettaBridge Theatre Management System, RosettaNet circuit management, Basekey and the DCP content delivery network, Movie Transit.
Unique X cinema software solutions are designed to achieve automation and operational efficiencies within cinemas and across Exhibitor networks.

This smart way of trailering enables us to show the appropriate trailers for the right films and the right audience. Our visitors will be better informed about upcoming films that match their film preferences and should not be missed. This way, the support act films become even more part of the day or evening out for our visitors.”
