AccessIT Signs Agreement with Lionsgate To Receive Content and Virtual Print Fees For Its Phase 2 Digital Cinema Deployment Plan For Up To 10,000 Screens

Fifth Studio Signing for Phase 2 Plan
Access Integrated Technologies, Inc. ("AccessIT") (NASDAQ:AIXD), the global leader in digital cinema announced today that leading next generation film studio LIONSGATE® (NYSE: LGF) will provide movies to digital cinema equipped theatres in the Phase 2 digital cinema program and will pay virtual print fees (VPFs) under a long-term agreement. This agreement follows a May 8th announcement of a similar agreement between Lionsgate and AccessIT for AccessIT’s Phase 1 Digital Cinema Deployment Plan.
 
With a slate of seven digital cinema releases between now and the end of February, including “Punisher: War Zone” on December 5, “The Spirit” on Christmas day, “Tyler Perry’s Madea Goes to Jail” on February 20th, as well as its first 3D feature “My Bloody Valentine” on January 16, Lionsgate will be a major provider of high quality digital cinema features for early Phase 2 customers.
 
“AccessIT has been a leader in shaping the digital cinema era of our industry. Lionsgate is very happy to extend our commitment to AccessIT now to include their Phase 2 Digital Cinema Deployment Plan and the many new exhibitors we expect they will bring into the digital world,” said Steve Rothenberg, President of Domestic Distribution at Lionsgate.  “Digital cinema brings the highest quality viewing experience to audiences and provides the platform for 3D movies like Lionsgate’s “My Bloody Valentine” which opens in theatres on January 16.”
 
“Lionsgate continues to be a vital participant in the world of digital cinema, especially with their full release schedule over the coming months,” said Chuck Goldwater, President of AccessIT’s Media Service Group.  “Together with the other major studios we expect they will continue to keep the digital pipeline full, which will encourage more exhibitors to convert to digital in the coming months. We are proud to continue to strengthen our long and valued relationship with Steve Rothenberg, Mike Polydoros and the entire Lionsgate team.”
