Encore Inflight, a leading inflight content distributor which set up an office in Singapore late last year, secured its first major client Cinewav, to provide specialty content that can be enjoyed across multiple venues without compromise to sound quality.

With more than a decade’s experience in providing content to more than 130 airlines, Encore will continue to leverage its network of global distributors to programme, curate and rights manage all content for use via Cinewav.

Cinewav is a unique platform and mobile app that allows users to watch movies on big public spaces whilst using the complementary mobile app which allows users to listen to the audio seamlessly on their own phones. Replacing the need for huge speakers, this mobile app guarantees high quality immersive personal experience, eliminates noise pollution, scaling to as many users as possible, and encourages the use of novel event spaces.

Christian Lee, Co-founder of Cinewav said, “My Co-founder Jason Chan and I are really excited to appoint Encore as curators for the Cinewav platform. Jovita and her team have built the prestigious Encore brand by finding, acquiring and distributing the top International, independent film gems that deserve to be watched by global audiences. The Cinewav solution came to us as filmmakers when we found that event screenings of our films always lacked great audio, despite attracting record crowds. Even in cinemas, the audio would often need tweaking to match what we had meticulously mixed for audiences. That’s when we thought ‘what if we could deliver the perfect audio mix to every member of the audience regardless of location and size?’. We then embarked on a 2-year journey to achieve the synchronization of high-quality audio on a smartphone with visuals on a big screen. The effort paid off as we now have a world first, patent-pending technology, that some are saying is more immersive than the traditional cinema experience”.

Jovita Toh, CEO of Encore Media said, “I have been a fan of Cinewav founders Christian and Jason since I distributed their festival award winning movie Jimami Tofu more than 5 years ago. This dynamic duo’s passion for film continues to inspire me. Together, Cinewav and Encore hopes to bring back the magic and allure of outdoor movie screenings.”
