VENUE connects professional storytellers and entertainers with their fans who want access to their content but are unable to attend the ticketed live event or the opening weekend. VENUE sells tickets per person to stream this premium content as if you were really attending the physical venue.
Our anticipated launch is in Q4 2021.
The VENUE app is free and does not involve any subscriptions, so you only pay for the tickets you purchase and the one-time purchase of the VENUE streaming media player.
You can do it in three simple steps! Step one: VENUE starts with setting up your account through the VENUE Member Portal at https://www.venue.stream and ordering your VENUE streaming media player. Step two: Once you’ve received VENUE, mount it on top of your television and plug in the provided cables. Step three: Power up VENUE and follow the simple on-screen instructions to complete the setup and connect to the internet. Finally, you can start browsing for the latest ticketed releases!
VENUE’s hardware options include VENUElite, an optics-only solution, and VENUEx, a more robust streaming player with optics. Projected retail price is anticipated to be $99.99 for the VENUEx and only $29.99 for the VENUElite.
When you use the VENUE streaming app and pick something to watch, you’ll need to buy tickets for each viewer. You can purchase tickets for everyone or each viewer can buy tickets individually. If VENUE detects more people in the room than tickets purchased, content will pause until the ticket count equals viewer count.
The VENUE hardware is a one-time purchase and there is no subscription fee required to create an account and use our app. Once you purchase and receive either VENUEx or VENUElite and create your free account, you only pay for what you watch by buying individual tickets for content on the VENUE app.
You can add multiple forms of payment, including any major credit and debit cards to your VENUE profile to purchase tickets. Pre-paid credit or gift cards will not be accepted. After a quick two-step authorization, tickets are purchased seamlessly through the VENUE app.
Ticket prices are set by content owners but will be competitively priced based on geography and demand.
VENUE is designed with consumer privacy as a top priority. VENUE uses A.I. and machine vision to count viewers and cannot store images to memory. Viewer count is done instantly and all data is encrypted end-to-end to ensure the highest level of privacy for our users. VENUE only counts the number of viewers and can’t store personal information about the viewers.
Definitely not- it’s illegal to do so. VENUE will recognize recording devices and will pause content until recording is no longer detected. Our features also support industry standard DRM and watermarking requirements to ensure the security and integrity of the content on VENUE. It’s not worth the trouble, so don’t risk it.
Currently no. VENUE is only designed to work with TVs or displays 2016 or newer that have HDMI ports and support HDCP.
The current model and hardware are not designed for projectors. However, we plan to introduce a model in the future specifically designed for those consumers in mind.
You can resume play once your internet returns without missing a thing.
We anticipate launching in the U.S. and possibly in India simultaneously and slowly expanding globally in the coming years.
XCINEX collects user information whenever a member logs in to make a ticket purchase. VENUE also verifies viewer count for each session by counting the number of people in the viewing area. VENUE does not use facial recognition. On the contrary, utilizing our software, VENUE only keeps a head count of viewers watching the content to ensure ticket accountability. XCINEX takes extensive measures to ensure your privacy is safe and your viewing is private.
Primarily, we use the data collected to ensure the number of viewers are equal to the number of purchased tickets throughout the content stream. We also use the data to enhance user experience on Venue by personalizing content recommendations. This information is also shared with content owners so they can make better content.
We will announce our content partners closer to our launch date to generate buzz and excitement around our anticipated launch in Q4 of 2021!
VENUE is a non-exclusive PPVrVOD (pay-per-viewer video on demand) marketplace for artists, entertainers, and studios to expand their ticketed audience for their premieres or live performances. Our models show that VENUE, once widely adopted, will generate record-breaking returns for entertainment.
Many studios have recently agreed to a 45-day exclusive theatrical window for their premium releases starting in 2022- and VENUE plans to facilitate digital exhibition in homes primarily during that 45-day exclusive timeframe.
Major studios aside, there is quite literally an entire world of independent storytellers, studios and creators outside of the U.S., and live performers of all varieties that are looking for new distribution channels into homes, which VENUE will provide!
VENUE is digital exhibition in the home and helps expand unique, one-time premiere releases and live experiences from around the world to home audiences so everyone can access more entertainment from home while it’s new and relevant.
They’re not paying more for less- on the contrary, with our zero dollar monthly subscription fee (that’s right- FREE), VENUE members will enjoy better quality entertainment for exactly what they’re willing to spend in tickets, and they won’t get passively charged each month for simply having the privilege of browsing catalogue content like on the average streaming platform.
Bringing this kind of new and relevant entertainment to the home using an individual ticket model brings more options, convenience and flexibility to our audience, which is looking for premiere and live releases, not catalogue content.
