Cinema Scene research results for video wall and LCD displays provide lift to advertisers
Cinema Scene Marketing, one of the nation’s leading providers of in-lobby media and promotions, announced today the results of its TrailerVision™ and Video WallAdvertising Research Report, conducted by the Worldwide Motion Picture Group of Ipsos MediaCT. The results show the positive influence digital media had on consumers during their visit to the cinema.
Results were able to confirm recall rates and intentions to see upcoming movies:
- Nearly 60% of patrons recalled viewing TrailerVision™ during their time in the lobby. Highest among teens aged 12-16 years (65%)
- Digital Video Advertising is perceived to be the most influential form of in-lobby advertising. VideoWall (54%) and TrailerVision™ (51%), are more influential than traditional movie posters (33%) and standees (28%). Digital Formats had a greater impact in making respondents ‘want to see the movie.’
- Time Spent viewing TrailerVision™ was highest among younger males and older females. Nearly 1/4 of all respondents mentioned viewing the displays for a few minutes or longer, with most respondents spending a little less than a minute viewing the content.
- TrailerVision™ delivers positive impressions for its viewers. 58% strongly agree that it ‘is a very modern/innovative way to advertise’, 50% think the ‘graphics/special effects look cool’, and 47% say it ‘is a fun way to find out about new movies’, (peaking at 55% among those under 25 years old).
“Consumers realize that TrailerVision™, both video walls and LCD poster displays, are the most modern and innovative way to learn about upcoming movie releases,” said Michael Holmes, Chief Marketing Officer, Cinema Scene. “The research demonstrates advertisers are realizing impressive results via campaigns utilizing the TrailerVision™ digital media network.”
“This research demonstrates that digital formats such as TrailerVision and could be a vital part of the media campaign,” says Keely Gillman, Vice President, Worldwide Motion Picture Group.
