Press Releases


During the 50th International Film Festival of Thessaloniki, Alphavision developed a unique digital signage project for Greek standards.
It was called FFTV channel, operated by Alphavision and based on C-nario software. The network included public spaces, festival premises and 8 hotels in Thessaloniki (Macedonia Palace, Hayatt, Capsis, City, Holiday Inn, Excelsior, Astoria and Electra Palace).  The hotel’s guests had the opportunity to watch on their own room tv set FFTV channel.

The daily FFTV program flow included news, film trailers, movies schedule, interviews, adverting spots, events etc
FFTV was also available live through internet and is still available as video on demand on the festival’s site.
A targeted private tv channel, gives the opportunity to those involved in the congress tourism sector, to provide a new product to their clients.
