The IT team services various Village Roadshow divisions including Village Cinemas and the in-house IT team is responsible for addressing IT infrastructure and IT development requirements, using external consulting resources where required.

We have used various systems in the past, but for ease of maintenance and relative to the environment at Jam Factory a new LCD video wall was most appropriate.
How long did the rollout take and what benefits has it had?
Not including the lead time for the equipment order, on-site works were less than one week from commencement install to completion and commissioning.
How does Village Cinema manage to stay relevant and modern with the tech savvy consumer?
Our team which includes our in-house IT and technical team constantly monitor advancements and review options that best suit our current brief.
What does your IT environment look like and what kinds of technologies do you use on a daily basis?
We predominantly use Microsoft support and development technologies for IT purposes. There are a vast range of technology related areas in the cinema business for which technology is selected based on requirements and industry standards.
