Screenvision Crowns The "Weekend Daypart"

Impact and Ease of Cinema to Headline Multi-City Upfront Event with Advanced Screening of Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier

NEW YORK, April 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Screenvision, a national leader in cinema advertising sales, will showcase its "Weekend Daypart" as a high impact and essential complement to TV advertising plans at its annual upfront event at New York's landmark Ziegfeld Theater. Additional presentations in Chicago, Los Angeles and Detroit will take place tomorrow evening. The company will also reveal programs that extend Screenvision's advertising impact with audio recognition leader SoundHound and social content programming leaders Entertainment News Television (ENTV) and Defy Media. These announcements will precede an advanced screening of Marvel's "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," allowing attendees to enjoy the company's product in its truest form – through a night at the movies.

Over the past decade, cinema has consistently delivered adults 18-49, while broadcast networks have on average dropped over 50 percent of impressions. Sources: Nielsen Cinema Audience Report, Nielsen Galaxy NTI, BoxOfficeMojo.com

These moves continue the company's efforts to revolutionize cinema advertising. The introduction of Screenvision as the Weekend Daypart reinforces the company's ability to break through media fragmentation and clutter, demonstrating its national scale and strengths as a powerful complement to TV advertising:

  • Scale: 8.5 million weekly attendance, equivalent 4.4 weekly rating among 18-49 year olds
  • Weekend Attendance: 70 percent audience delivery occurs on weekends
  • Live Impression - CNow: 100 percent unskippable and zero time shifting
  • Millennials: 50 percent of audience is between 12-34 years of age

"In this fragmented media marketplace, Screenvision provides something rare – scale, targeting and proven stability. Media strategists and buyers can now find meaningful impact against areas where television advertising under delivers," said Travis Reid, CEO, Screenvision. "This is cinema's time. With people going to the movies more than 1.34 billion times in 2013, coupled with the negative effect of fragmentation on other media, we are providing a highly coveted offering in today's marketplace."

Screenvision's scale is the equivalent of a 4.4 weekly rating among the 18-49 audience, placing it among the top 10 TV shows every week. It's not just scale, it's also effectiveness in brand messaging. When cinema advertising is paired with TV, there is a 69 percent increase in top-of-mind unaided brand awareness and 49 percent increase in purchase intent.[1]

The Easiest Media Platform to Buy
The benefits of Screenvision cinema advertising extend into the way it is bought and executed. At last year's upfront, Screenvision revolutionized the way cinema is purchased by fully aligning with TV and video buying processes, delivering demo guarantees, creating seasonal pricing and showparting, and being the only cinema advertising company to post campaigns with Nielsen. 

"The strategy we put in place works, providing Screenvision significant momentum and growth in the last year with more than 50 new advertisers," said Jim Tricarico, CRO, Screenvision. "We've established our place in this video-neutral marketplace. As we look forward, we will continue to evangelize that message, as well as tap into industry leaders to enable us to activate advertisers' key areas of interest – millennials, social engagement and targeting."

Extending Cinema's Impact with SoundHound
Screenvision has selected to work with SoundHound, a leading innovator in sound recognition with the world's fastest music and audio recognition. SoundHound will be integrated into Screenvision's recently-launched Front & Center preshow.  SoundHound's breakthrough technology will be used to activate advertising and entertainment programming, such as music and trivia, for Screenvision clients. The technology will enable advertisers to connect with moviegoers at the moment of interest, and walk out of the theater with brand messaging on their smartphones for subsequent engagement. SoundHound recently announced 'Add to Spotify' – an exclusive feature with Spotify – to further appeal to its youthful (18-34) core demographic.

 "We are very excited to start working with Screenvision, as they have clearly demonstrated leadership in engaging with moviegoers," said Kathleen McMahon, Vice President, SoundHound Inc. "We are looking forward to developing unique and engaging programs for advertisers to further connect with their audience."

Engaging a Millennial Audience with New Entertainment Alliances
Screenvision will also announce short-form video content partners in Entertainment News Television (ENTV) and Defy Media. It is deepening its relationship with ENTV, a leader in entertainment news, through an integrated media program. Sponsors of ENTV programming will receive extended reach both online and socially through Twitter Amplify. ENTV's entertainment-focused programming draws top-quality news from respected outlets such as Variety and Deadline, which are part of the extensive and growing portfolio of media properties belonging to ENTV's parent company Penske Media Corporation (PMC).

"Screenvision has been a great partner, enabling us to showcase our programming and create compelling content for advertisers," said Michael Davis, General Manager, ENTV, and Chief Video Officer, PMC. "As a next step in our collaboration, we'll be implementing integrated media opportunities to extend a brand's association with our content, capturing moviegoers in and out of theaters."

Defy Media, the definitive media company for the digital generation, formed by the merger of Alloy Digital and Break Media, will be working with Screenvision on short-form custom programming and branded content for the Front & Center preshow. Additionally, the alliance will enable advertisers to create multi-platform programs across the network of Defy properties.  Defy's leading portfolio of brands includes Break, Clevver, Made Man, SMOSH, Screen Junkies, The Gloss, and The Escapist, together reaching over 125 million consumers monthly through owned web, YouTube, mobile, social, and emerging OTT platforms.

"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" will be released nationwide on April 4, 2014.
