First End-to-End Online Solution Enabling Advance Screenings

SAN DIEGO, July xx– TicktBox®, a division of Screen Engine/ASI (SE/ASI) known for its powerful marketing and ticketing software and ability to provide fans with early advance movie previews through their Gofobo® brand, today announced the industry’s first ever end-to-end online “Virtual Screening Room”, enabling studios, networks, OTT platforms and distribution companies to engage audiences digitally and conduct advance screenings completely online to promote streaming, VOD, cable and broadcast content as well as theatrical releases.

Created to address the impact of Covid-19 on traditional marketing techniques, including word-of- mouth and promotional screenings, the Virtual Screening Room’s capability allows studios to continue recruiting targeted audiences and marketing their movies as they normally would prior to release, all leveraging the ticktBox® software marketing suite. Audiences will also be able to watch the screenings online through the platform across multiple devices in a safe environment, while still being able to generate buzz through word of mouth from the ticktBox® platform. With the Virtual Screening Room built on TicktBox’s reservation system, it incorporates online safety protocols enhanced with the introduction of a full multi-digital rights management system as well as the use of dynamic user watermarking, Geofencing and the latest security measures.

“It is our top priority to consider the health, well-being and comfort of moviegoers and screening communities,” said Andrew Ly, Founder and President, ticktBox®. “We’ve built a one of a kind cross promotional and marketing platform for studios to run their promotional screenings all within one suite in response to the social changes resulting from the virus outbreak, while eliminating the health concerns of attendees being physically present. This will also provide a top of the line marketing platform for major content providers who want to tap into our millions of users, recruit targeted audiences, enhance the use of our patented and powerful reservation software, and providing the online streaming element all in one place.”
