We also have our own production department, that can turn your concept idea into a piece of advertising that is fit for the big screen.



Advertisements in the cinema.

Cinema advertising captures the audience’s attention, and has a high recollection rate when compared with other media. Recent surveys conducted by Ipsos MMI and Meeting Point, shows that cinema is 3.6 times more effective than television in creating advertising recollection by OTS = 1.

In addition to remembering the advertisement, the audience thinks cinema advertisement is part of the cinema experience and say that it is both wanted and expected.

People in the cinema
A typical person in the cinema is characterized as sociable, active, innovative and affluent.

Target groups
Cinema distribution allows intensification of advertisement against a desired target, for example, man, woman, teenagers, adult or family. The advertisement then appears before movies, where it is anticipated that there will be a high percentage of this audience group.

Technical Specifications

Sound and picture are of the highest quality in cinemas. The advertisement will be shown in 2K(1998x1080). Full HD (1920x1080) is also very good on screen. The sound should be dynamic, at the movies we do not want limited edition sound (hard limited), as is traditionally used in television advertisement. The sound of the advertisement for cinemas is in LEQ82 level. We check the sound and picture quality of everything that is submitted. If you are not sure if your advertisement is "good enough for a cinema" please don’t hesitate to ask us.

We would prefer the advertisement delivered as TIFF / TARGA sequence with separated audio files. The sound should be mixed to a good dynamic 5.1 surround or stereo. We may also receive other formats like MOV, MP4, WMV or MPEG. Remember high bitrate. Minimum 10mbps
