International Datacasting Corporation Selected by Arqiva as Technology Partner for Major European Digital Cinema Network

International Datacasting Corporation (TSX:IDC), a global leader in providing advanced solutions for the distribution of broadband multimedia content via satellite, announced today that it has received an initial order from Arqiva Satellite & Media for infrastructure to support its development of a new pan-European digital cinema satellite network.

Arqiva selected IDC as one of their technology partners after an extensive evaluation process. IDC, through its wholly-owned subsidiary PROFLine B.V. in the Netherlands, will provide key elements of infrastructure for the delivery of file encoded movies as well as live events and alternative content. This IDC enabled platform can be expanded to incorporate IDC's 3D technology for the delivery of 3D live events.

The award to IDC follows the recent announcement that Arqiva had formed a long term strategic partnership agreement with Arts Alliance Media (AAM) for the satellite distribution of films and alternative content live events into European cinemas.

"Arqiva was looking for the best combination of technology for both live and file based movie delivery to digital cinemas. We wanted a professional grade solution that is future proof, highly modular and scalable," said Barrie Woolston, Commercial Director, Media & Enterprise at Arqiva. "It is also crucial for us to work with a company with a proven track record and the reliability to provide on-going support as we build out the network," he continued.

"We are very pleased that our SuperFlex and Datacast XD systems solution has been chosen by Arqiva for their next generation digital cinema network in Europe. They are one of the largest satellite service providers in Europe, with years of practical experience in digital cinema delivery and a reputation for having the highest quality and performance standards in the industry," added Ron Clifton President and CEO of International Datacasting.

The contract value is not being disclosed for confidentiality reasons. This initial order was received and substantially shipped at the end of IDC's fiscal year.
