The growth of the Microspace digital cinema delivery network has reached a milestone ensuring the most cost effective method of digital cinema delivery over competing satellite networks and alternative forms of delivery such as hard drives.
Microspace has now distributed 50 motion pictures to date from eight major motion picture studios, including the first 3-D movie and the first 4K movie via satellite, to theater circuits within the United States, Mexico and Canada. Microspace also delivers alternative content such as sporting events which included a college football game delivered live in High Definition to multiple theater locations and the delivery of a sporting
event to over 150 Carmike theatres.
“Microspace continues to exceed its forecasts of signed and installed theaters by meeting the security and reliability requirements of our studio and exhibitor customers,” said Curt Tilly, Manager of Digital Cinema Distribution at Microspace. “Our growth has extended a network that achieves the most cost effective digital cinema delivery method available. This is underscored by the partnerships we currently hold with eight major motion picture studios.”
Much of the company’s continued success is a result of Hollywood’s demand for an effective and cost efficient method of delivery to the growing number of digital screens across North America. Satellite distribution offers studios, theater exhibitors and alternative content providers a less labor-intensive and secure method of content delivery. Delivering motion pictures
via satellite is a secure, scalable, hands-free approach that includes full tracking and verification of the delivery through the entire process and reduces the overall workload of the theater staff.
The Microspace digital cinema delivery network is built by expanding on a dependable, successful 20 year satellite broadcasting business. Microspace has played an integral part in helping the industry address the concerns and workflow of electronic distribution via satellite for the past five years. The Microspace digital cinema delivery network is the only open technology platform that encourages further connectivity and integration with other key suppliers serving the motion picture and theater exhibitor community.
Microspace Communications Corporation (Microspace), a subsidiary of Capitol Broadcasting Company, is the leader in satellite services for digital signage, business communications and digital cinema. The company operates the largest global business satellite broadcasting network with nearly 340,000 remote links worldwide.
Microspace’s VELOCITY content delivery platform is available as either a dedicated solution or as an on-demand service, enabling customers to easily and affordably expand bandwidth as their delivery needs change. Microspace is headquartered in the U.S. and has a presence in Europe and Latin America. For more information, visit microspace.com.
