Automated DVD Machines on student campuses. New trend to increase foot traffic in retail stores. ELO predicts that by year end 2005 there will be more than 2,000 DVD vending machines in the U.S.

ELO Media LLC., a leading provider of DVMatic, an Automated DVD Rental Machine, announced the launching of DVMatic on student campuses in the East Coast. Currently operating in Rutgers University and Monmouth University, DVMatic serves as an additional entertainment medium for students, enabling them to rent and purchase DVD movies and video games. Due to its low overhead and operating costs, it offers students an inexpensive alternative to existing campus activities.

According to ELO Media, novel marketing opportunities are increasingly sought after as an added competitive edge to increase foot traffic at retail locations. Considering that DVD players will soon penetrate over 80% of US households (Digital Entertainment Group), ELO predicts that by year end 2005 there will be more than 2,000 DVD vending machines in the U.S., as supermarkets, restaurants and shopping centers compete to enhance foot traffic. McDonald’s, which has recently tested such machines, is now installing 105 DVD vending machines in its Denver stores. According to Mats Lederhausen, managing director of McDonald's Ventures, they expect these DVD machines to increase foot traffic and lure more business (USA Today).

Located in supermarkets or restaurants, DVMatic provides customers with the convenience of renting a movie while grabbing dinner or shopping for groceries. DVMatic holds over 700 DVD slots and 180 different titles in one machine. Its simple user interface and movie display panels make finding a movie simple and offers an instant rental or purchase with the swipe of a credit card. Following the increased popularity of ATMs and ticket vending machines, you can soon expect to find a DVmatic rental machine at a location near you.
