Reelhouse Launches Major Updates To Platform

Reelhouse Launches Major Updates To Platform

Posted: Updated:

Reelhouse VOD is gaining momentum, delivering benefits to fans and filmmakers

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / June 23, 2014 / Reelhouse, a disrupter to the “direct to fan” video on demand market, is pleased to announce the launch of major upgrades to its “Reelhouse Direct” platform. New features include flexible payment systems, improved product bundling, greater content control, and discount offers to special audience groups. Reelhouse Direct allows independent filmmakers, studios, film distributors and traditional retail outlets to market and sell movies directly to viewers.

“We listen very closely to movie viewers and filmmakers to make product updates they want,” said Reelhouse CEO William Mainguy, “With these new features Reelhouse offers the easiest to use, most robust technical platform available for on-line movie sales and rentals.”

Flexible Payment Processing

Allowing viewers to choose from a number of different ways to pay reduces barriers to sales. The new release makes it possible for viewers to pay through PayPal, credit card, bank account debit, Bitcoin, Amazon Wallet, Google Wallet — or any of the other new online and mobile payment systems.

Unlimited Discounts

The new discounts feature allows rights owners to offer special discounts using discount codes. If a filmmaker wants to provide film school friends with a discount, all he or she needs to do is to send them a discount code. When the viewer inputs the code during purchase, Reelhouse processes it to reduce the price of a sale or rental – depending on the discount. Filmmakers can create an unlimited number of discounts for any title and track purchases at each discount level. This feature allows filmmakers to adjust their pricing depending on audience. It also allows them to gather information about what price point brings in the most revenue based on pricing and volume.

Easy Bundling

The direct-to-fan model for video distribution has proven that bundling films with merchandise, and other extras, increases overall sales. This version of Reelhouse makes it easy for filmmakers to create an unlimited number of bundles per title. Filmmakers can easily drag and drop products from inventory into a bundle panel and it formats automatically, presenting bundles in an attractive offering.

Simple Content Curation

Reelhouse allows filmmakers and rights owners to customize their movie pages in a million different ways. A new back-end makes it easier for people to set up their movie pages and control them. Now page makers can access all controls and settings from a unified, dashboard-like control center. The Reelhouse Control Center makes page creation and content curation easy – without any coding. The new interface provides configurable pre-sets, which filmmakers can customize, making any movie experience unique, memorable and more valuable.

“Reelhouse provides the platform where filmmakers and rights owners can engage with fans, improve reach and increase revenues – making it easy to wrap pre-releases, merchandise, out-takes and actor information around sales or rental of a final production,” said Daniel Domachowski, Producer of Chloe and Attie, “We get everything we need from Reelhouse.”
