Eclair Theatrical Services Helps Cinemas Across France Prepare to Reopen

Eclair’s mastering and digital content delivery business supports theatrical reopening projects
Eclair Theatrical Services, a European leader in KDM management and digital & physical content delivery for cinemas (Ymagis Group – FR0011471291, MAGIS, PEA-PME), is proud to have partnered with France’s Superior Commission for Image and Sound (CST) and the Federation of French Cinemas (FNCF) by overseeing the DCP mastering of their “Test” film, produced specially to allow French cinemas to ensure their projection equipment remains fully functional prior to reopening.
 
Marking a first for mainland France and its overseas territories, the encrypted test content was made available to every cinema nationwide this week – large chains, small circuits, independents, traveling cinemas – with over 7,000 KDMs generated by Eclair and sent from its Paris-Vanves and Liège-Barchon facilities.
 
"Meeting the needs of our customers, distributors and cinema exhibitors is at the core of our organization’s mission, but we want to go further, by anticipating the future and being proactive,” says Yves Gringuillard, Managing Director, Eclair Theatrical Services. “That is why we’ve partnered with the CST and the FNCF on this innovative project which allows each cinema to have confidence in the technical quality of its screenings upon reopening.”
 
Eclair also made available to the campaign its digital content delivery network, to which more than 800 EclairBoxes are connected nationally, and its serverless solution, EclairExpress, which can be accessed by all cinema operators in SaaS mode.
 
“The ‘Test’ DCP is also available free of charge on our EclairPlay platform, which provides a natural connection between content distributors, who highlight their catalogues, and exhibitors, who can request and receive content via secure download,” adds Marie-Laure Barrau, Cluster Manager for Northern Europe, Eclair Theatrical Services.
   
While COVID-19 has paralyzed much of the world, Eclair Theatrical Services has remained attentive to its customers and mobilized to guarantee a continuity of services and thus allow each industry player to best prepare for their reopening. Eclair is also now taking part in a new initiative for a European-wide test package.
