Arts Alliance Media Transmit Full Length Feature Via Satellite to CGR Megaplex in Bordeaux, France London, UK

Arts Alliance Media (AAM), Europe’s leading provider of digital cinema technology, content and deployment, have successfully transmitted the 2008 Palme d’Or winning film, Entre Les Murs, in a full digital cinema package (DCP) via satellite, direct to the library server at Circuit George Raymond (CGR) Cinemas’ megaplex site in Villenave d’Ornon, Bordeaux. CGR Cinémas is one of France’s largest cinema chains.

The test transmission, of Entre Les Murs, distributed by Haut et Court, took place last week with AAM using their new content delivery platform - Arqiva’s Content Delivery Network. The 216 GB file was transmitted and loaded onto the server at CGR Villenave d’Ornon without any operator intervention.

Satellite transmission of digital films to cinemas is widely seen as the future of distribution, moving on from the current system of shipping digital cinema processed films on hard drives, resulting in considerable time and cost savings.

Rich Phillips, AAM’s Head of Technical Operations, commented “This is a first for AAM and we are pleased to have established the capabilities of our Content Delivery Platform, and believe that this test demonstrates the potential for future satellite delivery of content to cinemas.”

Barrie Woolston, Commercial Director at Arqiva Satellite & Media, added “Arqiva’s extensive satellite expertise means that we can partner with AAM to provide delivery services for digital cinema releases, and also provide satellite support for live events into cinemas.”

Arts Alliance Media has installed 374 digital cinema screens to date, including over 100 in France as part of the conversion of all CGR’s 400 screens to digital.
