Attendance forecasting enhanced model – We learned from the last year of historical data and trends, while also updating to the latest technologies and Python language version. This means we now have the best tools to look into offering the most accurate predictions for each of your sites on a daily basis. There is no end-user impact.
Film Manager Forecasting – View Booked sites directly in Film Manager Forecasting page – There is no need to go back and forth between Forecasting and Booking Chart page anymore. Once a film was booked in the Booking chart, you can see it after the next data sync directly under Forecasting results.
Filter only booked sites to better understand the predicted total admissions.
Film Manager Optimized Scheduling - New Forecast distribution insights - Customers can choose any combination of Film Genre, Film Audio language and Film Rating data to uncover trends in demand distribution for each day of the week for each site. Previously, only Film Genre data was available for daily demand distribution insights generation. This feature facilitates showtime scheduling based on real time trends and available information in your historical data. For example, an English action film rated R would receive more sessions in the evening, compared to a Spanish action film rated PG-13 which would receive more sessions in the afternoon.
App - New Forecast distribution page – View the Forecast distribution insights directly in your Cinema Intelligence App under Programming, even before creating a schedule. Choose which type of data model fits best with your moviegoers’ demand and take action to incorporate it into your optimized scheduling generation process.
Film Manager Optimized Scheduling enhancements
· General availability of ‘single auditorium’ bookings – booking policies can be configured to automatically schedule a film print only in one auditorium. If a film print is assigned this policy in the Booking chart / Holdover sheet, the print will be scheduled only in one single auditorium. If a film should fill multiple auditoriums, multiple film prints should be created.
· General availability of ‘not extra shows’ bookings – booking policies can be configured to restrict film sessions only to manually scheduled sessions. If a film print is assigned this policy in the Booking chart / Holdover sheet, the print will not be included in the optimized scheduling proposal, and will not receive any sessions besides the ones manually programmed in Showtime Manager.
· Bug fix: film prints with exact number of sessions booking policies will not receive additional sessions in the optimized scheduling proposal.
