Unlike other virtual content platforms, the AMMA Theater, as it is called, presents a specialized billboard with references from different fields of music and theater.

Through the association with EntradaUno, which is a company with more than 3 million active users, the AMMA Theater offers a secure platform to support high traffic in transmissions. Many plays are uploaded and viewed from Zoom, and this platform ensures connection for thousands of viewers simultaneously. It can be followed from any type of device, tablet, smartphone or PC.
