Cinema Buying Group-NATO and Eclair USA Announce Innovative Film Content Delivery Partnership

The National Association of Theater Owners (NATO)’s Cinema Buying Group (CBG) today announced a global partnership with Eclair USA, the US branch of Eclair, a leader in content services for the motion picture and television industries in Europe (Ymagis Group – FR0011471291, MAGIS, PEA-PME, TECH 40). 

The program has been designed to provide participating CBG movie theaters with easy and cost-effective access to EclairPlay, a fast-growing DCP content broadband delivery platform currently in use at over 180 North American cinemas. Through EclairPlay, CBG’s members will have access to expanded programming options and an ever-increasing portfolio of first-run independent films and event cinema fare. 
 
“With today’s announcement, the CBG has taken a step forward in providing our members, over 400 independent movie exhibition companies, with one of our industry’s most innovative DCP delivery platforms, EclairPlay,” remarked Bill Campbell, CBG Purchasing Director. “Qualified CBG members will now be able to access EclairPlay’s rapidly expanding content portal, www.EclairPlay.com. With it, our participating members will be able to easily source, negotiate bookings, and organize the subsequent delivery of both independent film and event cinema programming from dozens of domestic and international distributors. DCI-compliant DCP files are then downloaded directly to CBG member’s projection booth without the need to deliver traditional hard drive physical media, saving both time and money while expanding programming options for our membership.” 
 
 “We applaud the CBG’s forward-thinking approach in assisting their membership in creating the most dynamic programming mix for their communities,” comments Barry Rebo, Managing Partner of Eclair USA. “Our collaboration with the CBG comes at an especially exciting time for EclairPlay, and should facilitate its adoption among the 1,100 CBG venues, as we begin international deployment of EclairExpress, our software only ‘server-less solution’. EclairExpress allows for total access to all the features of our highly-successful EclairPlay platform without the need for additional hardware in the projection booth. From any MacOS, Windows, laptop or desktop unit, CBG members will be able to download their own innovative programming strands with a minimum of expense while dramatically increasing day-to-day operational ease. In addition to our serverless option, CBG members can also elect to deploy a highly-advanced receiver/cache server hardware set.”
 
EclairPlay is a content platform specifically designed for cinema exhibitors, distributors, content owners, sales agents and film festivals.
