A new startup offers an improved viewing experience in a public screening, at any time and place, in different languages and at the convenience of viewers.

Muvix, a new startup, was established to reinvent the social experience of watching movies outside of the home. Using technological innovations and a unique business model, Muvix offers its customers an endless array of ways to screen and watch movies, TV shows, sporting events, shows, lectures and more in an enjoyable, high-quality fashion.

The company, which is also appealing to organizations and business groups, allows its customers to publicly screen multiple programs simultaneously, in an innovative and improved viewing experience anytime, anywhere--whether indoors, or under the open sky. Among the possibilities: viewing parties at the beach, rooftop parties, or anywhere a customer chooses--including at the Muvix concept center in Tel Aviv. Like Netflix transformed home viewing, Muvix will transform outdoor viewing.

 

 

In order to provide the public with a taste of its unique viewing experience, Muvix is launching its Muvix Concept station as a model for future stations to be developed around the world. The center, which will be housed in the restored train station in Neve Tsedeq, Tel Aviv, is the first in the world to offer movies on-demand in a public space. The center will include 14 viewing rooms of varying sizes, from rooms for couples to rooms for 14 people, including rooms with double beds, and a family room with multiple screens. The seating areas are ergonomically designed for maximum comfort. Renowned interior designer Alona Eliasi designed the rooms.

In each individual room, customers will enjoy a quality viewing experience, in the preferred language of the viewer. The center also includes a fully equipped bar and kitchen, offering a rich menu of food and beverages, including alcohol. Snacks ordered via the Muvix application are then delivered directly to the viewing room. Under chef Shahar Barnea, the menu includes pizza, foccacia, sandwiches, cheese and antipasta platters, as well as snacks such as nachos, popcorn, ice cream and more, with all food prepared onsite. The bar includes a variety of cocktails and other beverages. There are package deals which include food and drink with the entrance fee.

Prior to arrival, customers should download the Muvix app, via which one is able to hear the movies (with high-quality clarity). The app also enables purchasing tickets, ordering food and drinks, inviting friends, and other features. If needed, customers can also borrow headphones and other necessary devices at the center.

Muvix was established by Alon Cohen, founder and CEO of CyberArk, with the goal of creating a global viewing revolution. The company uses patented technology to ensure perfectly synchronized audio and visual signals, and to allow high-quality, simultaneous viewing of diverse media by different groups in the same space, creating a new viewing experience (movie-on-demand in a public space).

The space used during the trial period is a quiet location ideal for families and corporate visits. The center has just opened to the public, and is open Thursday-Saturdays, 18:00-22:00 or until the end of the final movie (approximately midnight). Ticket prices during this period are 20 NIS, which includes complimentary cocktail.

Nitai Barzem, Muvix CEO:

Muvix’s innovative platform provides a new media channel which can transform the public space, indoors or out, into a smart theater showing multiple channels simultaneously, with incredible quality and without interference to viewers or neighbors. People love the social and communal experience and want to get out of the house, and Muvix enables a wide array of new and enticing viewing options for individuals and groups. We invite you to come experience Muvix for yourselves.

Muvix Concept

President Reuven Rivlin today (Wednesday) met at his residence in Jerusalem with United States Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Nikki R. Haley.

President Rivlin welcomed her and said, “You are a dear friend of Israel. We appreciate your strong stand on the world’s most important stage, in support of the security of the people and the State of Israel. With your support we see the beginning of a new era. Israel is no longer alone at the UN. Israel is no longer the UN’s punching bag.”

He continued, “When I spoke at the UN on Holocaust Memorial Day, I said that the UN must learn from the lessons of the past, and stand up against hatred and racism. I said it must end its obsession with targeting Israel. Progress has been made. Israel’s standing at the UN has improved. But sadly, we have a long way to go. Both in holding to account, public statements made by officials, and in supporting regulation to reduce the ridiculous number of discussions and resolutions against Israel. This is also true in the Human Rights Council - which has been hijacked as a weapon against Israel - and in UNESCO, where they seek to rub out the history of the Jewish people.”

The President thanked the Ambassador for her great contribution to the State of Israel, and said, “Ambassador Haley, as the representative the US - Israel’s greatest and strongest ally - we appreciate very much your support of Israel, and all you do to stand up for the values of freedom and democracy which we share. Welcome to Israel, welcome to Jerusalem.”

Ambassador Haley thanked the President for his warm welcome and said, “Thank you Mr. President for taking the time to meet with us, it is an absolute thrill to be here in Israel, I so much appreciate the support we have received from the people of Israel. But I feel somewhat guilty because all I did at the United Nations was tell the truth. I have never taken kindly to bullies, and the UN has bullied Israel for a very long time, and we are not going to let that happen anymore. It is a new day for Israel in the United Nations. We just got back from Geneva, talking about the Human Rights Council and hopefully it will be a new day at the Human Rights Council when it comes to Israel.”

She concluded by saying she was greatly looking forward to her visit to Israel and said, “I am looking forward to taking in the history, the beauty, the tradition, and all that comes with the magic of Israel. Thank you very much for having me it is a pleasure to be here.”
