Deluxe has launched the Content & Key Manager to replace their existing Cinema Portal platform. The Content & Key Manager has been integrated as a service within Deluxe One – the company's flagship cloud-based platform that unifies each stage of the content supply chain, creating an end-to-end ability to manage assets and requirements from creation to delivery.
Designed to provide major circuits, independent exhibitors, and studios with greater visibility across the Deluxe Technicolor Digital Cinema theatrical supply chain, the company says the Content & Key Manager simplifies day-to-day management of operations at a time when the release cycle is becoming increasingly complex.
The integration of the Content & Key Manager into Deluxe One is the first step in building out the full suite of Deluxe's Digital Cinema products within the platform.
According to Deluxe, the Content & Key Manager centralizes vital information in one convenient location, providing better visibility across individual screens and overall operations. The self-servicing, intuitive platform provides on-demand access to track DTDC content shipments, download active keys, highlight essential feature and projectionist data, and get help - fast. The addition of a new mobile-first experience further extends access to this information in real time eliminating the need for calls and emails to address the most common issues and questions.
"Managing a multitude of file specifications, keys and delivery windows takes more time and resources and can hinder visibility across delivery operations," said Debbie Mann, senior vice president, North America operations, DTDC. "The online Content & Key Manager, accessible via the Deluxe One platform, categorizes and organizes all of the Deluxe Technicolor Digital Cinema data into a single repository, so exhibitors and content owners have visibility and real-time access to the information they need to ensure correct playback each and every time."
