NOC and Media Lab

National CineMedia operates NCM Media Networks, a leading integrated media company reaching U.S. consumers in movie theaters, online, and through mobile technology. The NCM Cinema Network presents cinema advertising and events across the nation’s largest digital in-theater network comprised of theaters owned by AMC Entertainment, Cinemark Holdings, Regal Entertainment Group, and others.

The Network Operation Center’s (NOC) main focus is to monitor and manage the NCM Media Networks. There are two main networks; the satellite network which delivers and plays the “First Look” preshow prior to the exhibitors movies and the Wide Area Network (WAN) which supports NCM’s remote offices. The NOC is a 24 hours a day, 7days a week, 365 days a year work center that is environmentally and utility controlled (air conditioning and electrical).

The Media Production Tour consisted of an introduction and in-depth discussion of the materials received to NCM and the process and procedures to create materials for the NCM Media Networks. In addition, attendees were shown an abbreviated 2D and 3D show in our in house screening room.
