IDC, DSAT Cinema Sign Agreement to Expand and Develop Digital Cinema Satellite Technology
[Via Satellite 09-06-13] DSAT Cinema, a Eutelsat and dcinex joint venture company specializing in satellite delivery of films and live events, has committed to ordering over 1,000 of International Datacasting’s (IDC) SuperFlex Pro Video Receivers. These receivers will be installed throughout Europe in the coming years.
IDC’s SuperFlex Pro Video XTR Receiver is an integrated, one-box solution that includes a video decoder, file receiver and storage. All IDC receivers are controlled from the DSAT Cinema network operations center to ensure fast and secure delivery of the content. The digital content distribution technology is further streamlined with IDC handling all of the hardware and software needs. By allowing digital cinema package file delivery, plus normal live events in 2D or 3D on two different satellite carriers at the same time, IDC’s receiver is expected to decrease capital expenditures significantly.
“We believe a mutually strong partnership with IDC plays a critical role in the success of our expansion plans to bring smart, cost-effective solutions to cinemas via satellite, virtually anywhere in Europe,” said Fabrice Testa, CEO of DSAT Cinema.
