Digital Motion Picture via Satellite

Microspace Digital CinemaMicrospace was the first digital cinema service provider to deliver a standardized version of a digital motion picture via satellite more than six years ago. Today, it provides a turnkey solution to exhibitors and theatres for the distribution and tracking of digital content. Microspace’s Digital Cinema service is an ideal distribution channel, offering the ability to deliver content over satellite in a secure, reliable and cost-effective manner.

As a member of the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers’ DC28 committee, Microspace provided input to support the establishment of DCI standards for digital cinema. Today, Microspace partners with studios, content preparation companies, exhibitors and industry associations to continue the advancement and adoption of digital cinema.

Secure & Redundant Systems
