Reported $1.3m investment will see the company developing products specifically for the Chinese market.
Irish start-up Showtime Analytics, which provides data analysis for the film industry, has secured investment from Yueke/Finixx, a subsidiary of Chinese media giant Alibaba Pictures Group.
According to a report by the Irish Times, the amount will be €1.2m ($1.3m).
Showtime has heralded the investment as Yueke/Finixx’s first investment outside of China.
Founded in 2014 by Richie Power, Joe Spurling and Paul Lynch, Showtime services cinema owners and film distributors with real time operational data that provides insights into business performance.
The money will fund a joint venture that will see Showtime develop products specifically for the ever-burgeoning Chinese cinema industry.
Valued at $9.6bn, Alibaba Pictures owns ventures ranging from production outfits to distribution and ticketing companies. Finixx, acquired by Alibaba in 2015, provides software systems for more than 2,000 theatres and 30 online movie ticketing platforms.
