Technicolor partners with SmartJog for European satellite distribution

Aug 30, 2012

Technicolor is expanding its digital-cinema satellite distribution service in Europe, entering a partnership with leading electronic-delivery provider SmartJog. The SmartJog satellite network has access to more than 1,000 sites in nine European markets.

“SmartJog…has a well-established European digital-cinema network, which Technicolor will offer to its clients to distribute features and trailers on a pan-European basis,” commented Claude Gagnon, president of Technicolor Creative Services division. “Technicolor provides its clients the benefit of working with a single vendor to manage worldwide releases without the need to manage multiple providers across the globe.”

“We are pleased to be partnering with Technicolor in Europe, who will offer its studio customers a fully managed end-to-end electronic-delivery solution directly to cinemas via our network,” said Jean-Sébastien Petit, CEO of SmartJog. “This partnership will further help electronic delivery become an industry standard in distribution of DCPs to cinemas. Our company is focused on accelerating our pan-European network rollout, with the objective of having 100% of first-run cinemas in target countries connected by 2016, and furthermore, we are investing in our network infrastructure. We have recently doubled our satellite capacity in Europe to support our growth.”
