Sony Selects Microspace to Deliver First 4K Digital Feature Via Satellite

Microspace Communications Corporation (Microspace), the leading distributor of digital cinema via satellite, today announced that Sony Electronics Inc. used the company’s Digital Cinema Distribution solution to distribute the first Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCI) compliant 4K digital cinema package via satellite. Microspace successfully delivered Sony Picture’s The Da Vinci Code to Sony’s laboratory in San Jose to test the viability of distributing 4K content via satellite.

“4K delivery and projection permits the content that was originally captured to be displayed on the screen at the highest resolution possible today,” said Peter Ludé, senior vice president, solutions engineering for Sony Electronics. “We tested the satellite distribution of the 4K content for security, reliability and for compatibility with digital cinema projection systems. We were impressed by Microspace’s ability to streamline the integration and process of delivering such a large file. This demonstration provided a great example of the viability of digital cinema 4K content for theaters.”

“The delivery of the DCI-compliant 4K feature, the industry’s first via satellite, demonstrates the flexibility and scalability of our solution,” said Curt Tilly, manager of digital cinema distribution for Microspace. “As more studios and theaters evaluate the delivery and management of DCP distribution, they will need to rely upon solutions that can easily manage electronic delivery and the intricacies of a secure and reliable distribution.”

Microspace has achieved many industry firsts in satellite digital cinema distribution and continues to lead the way. Microspace delivered the first JPEG2000 feature via Intelsat satellite for Walt Disney’s The Shaggy Dog and was the first to deliver concurrent JPEG2000 and MPEG content to theaters. In 2004, the company was the first to distribute over satellite 4K DCI Standard Evaluation Material (StEM) for use in a wide variety of digital cinema testing programs.
