About the ZOOscreen App
What is ZOOscreen?
ZOOscreen is an app that is used for the secure screening of movies, TV shows and other video content for viewing on Apple TV and iPads. Unlike normal broadcast methods, the videos are sent to specific users and the content is protected by a variety of security methods such as forensic and personalized watermarking.
Each screening can also be limited to a set number of views
What is an App?
An app is a program that runs on your Apple TV or iPad, like iTunes or YouTube, we're sure you've got plenty of them. In this case the ZOOscreen app allows you to view your screenings.
What Will It Work On?
The ZOOscreen app is available for Apple TV and iPad:
- 4th generation Apple TV, 32GB or 64GB.
- iPad 3rd generation onwards, including: iPad Air, iPad Mini, iPad Pro, with iOS 9 or later.
Because the video is streamed rather than stored on your device you will need an Internet connection to be able to view the content.

My Apple TV says I need to authenticate the app, what do I do?

You should already have a Core-ID; enter your email address and password and click Log In. You will be sent a text message containing a six-digit verification code. Enter the code and then click Log In. The ZOOscreen app will open and show you the content that is available for you to view.
