Technicolor Expands Digital Cinema Distribution

Technicolor has announced an agreement with Cinedigm Digital Cinema Corp to acquire the assets of Cinedigm specific to physical and electronic distribution of digital cinema content to movie theatres.
This further extends Technicolor's market position and accelerates the growth of its satellite footprint in North America.
Frederic Rose, CEO of Technicolor, commented: "This agreement underpins Technicolor's leadership position and commitment to all forms of digital distribution. It allows us to accelerate the expansion of our market-leading satellite footprint as we continue to provide the highest level of quality and security to our studio clients.
"Technicolor is the market leader and highly respected in the delivery business, with strong customer relationships both domestically and internationally that will allow Cinedigm to expand our software and content distribution businesses faster and more effectively," said Chris McGurk, Chairman and CEO of Cinedigm.
Technicolor will acquire Cinedigm's physical and electronic distribution assets, including replication equipment and hard drive inventory as well as a minimum of 300 incremental satellite roof rights with Cinedigm’s current and future exhibitor customers as part of their North American digital cinema equipment deployment. This will result in approximately a 40% increase in Technicolor’s footprint, expanding its satellite network to over 1,100 locations in the United States and Canada.
It will become Cinedigm's preferred content servicing partner for post production through distribution services and will work with Cinedigm to support the development by Cinedigm of next generation entertainment industry software.
It will also license Cinedigm's CineSuite (digital delivery tools) and CineXpress (trailer distribution) software and seek opportunities to expand its digital cinema distribution footprint.
