We've added a function that allows you to send screener links to a list of recipients. That way, you can now share your screener with multiple recipients or groups of recipients separately, allowing you to add or delete access on a per-share basis. You can even see how often an access code was visited.

What's next?

Since we started in 2013, we have been working on projects that facilitate the work of our fellow colleagues and clients. We began by developing a trailer download platform for managing and distributing movie trailers and press materials. We went on to initiate DCP disk distribution to cinemas, thereby creating a convenient online tool for instructing and supervising distribution. The next step was to provide a DCP naming generator based on the "Digital Cinema Naming Convention". The DCP naming generator makes the file names of digital cinema copies readable. This not only facilitates the work of projectionists in theaters but also makes life easier for those working in post-production and distribution.
