Complete content delivery solutions for digital cinemas
cinemas in Europe equipped for satellite distribution
Efficient content distribution is a key success factor for digital cinema. Satellite is one of the most cost-effective platforms for secure transmissions irrespective of location. Heavy files can be received and stored in just a few hours.
Eutelsat and Belgium's dcinex, Europe’s leading digital cinema company, have created a joint venture company called DSAT Cinema to service the cinema industry in Europe. More than 700 sites in 20 European countries are already equipped for reception of live and pre-recorded content. Eutelsat's satellites regularly manage high-speed transfers of up to 140 Mbps via hubs in France and Italy with network operations managed by OpenSky.
Dcinex has deployed 2,000 digital screens in Europe with a further 3,000 to deploy by 2014. DSAT Cinema will offer a single point of contact for a full range of services, radically simplifying the process of operating in a fully digital environment for content owners and distributors.
