Smartjog Deploys its Digital Cinema Library to Theatre Chain, Europalaces
SmartJog’s high capacity Central Library Servers purchased by Europalaces for the delivery and storage of digital cinema packages in cinemas
SmartJog, the leader in managed digital delivery worldwide, announced today that French theatre chain, Europalaces, the owner of Gaumont and Pathe cinemas, has signed an agreement for the purchase and deployment of its high capacity SmartJog Digital Cinema Central Library Servers. The first phase of deployment was recently completed to 33 sites in France, with planned Phase 2 to start shortly. While SmartJog has been deploying its Libraries since last year to theatres in France, Europalaces is the largest chain to commit to a substantial rollout in Europe. Over 65 theatres and 400 digital screens are currently connected to the SmartJog delivery platform.
With this major deployment into Europalaces theatres in France, Switzerland and the Netherlands, the TDF Pan-European Digital Cinema Network, a secure satellite and fiber delivery service operated by TDF subsidiaries, SmartJog and Media Broadcast, will grow to over 200 theatres by the end of 2009.
SmartJog's Digital Cinema Central Library Server is the only hardware on the market which is capable of storing very large amounts of data and receiving Digital Cinema Packages (DCPs) via satellite and fiber. This agreement will enable Europalaces to receive all its digital content via SmartJog.
The Central Library Server, which combines up to 12 Terabytes of storage with central management features, is backed by a 5-year warranty and 24/7 remote system monitoring via terrestrial connection. Upon arrival of DCPs in the library server, automatic checks are performed to ensure the integrity of the files and DCPs can be automatically ingested into the local digital cinema playback servers or theatre management system (TMS). Content can also be loaded locally from a physical medium or via an internal network. A secure and easy-to-understand web interface is available for the management of deployed Central Library Servers.
The theatres that were part of the first phase of deployment, are already electronically receiving trailers and pre-show material from Mediavision, the leading cinema advertising company in France.
“We are happy to provide SmartJog’s Central Library server to Europalaces and look forward to a long working relationship with the company, “ says Nicolas Dussert, Director of European Digital Cinema Sales for SmartJog. “Europalaces is at the forefront of the digital transition in theatres and is benefiting from the purchase of the most cost-effective and versatile Library solution available in the market today since there is no need to set-up any additional equipment to receive DCPs.”
The SmartJog Digital Cinema Library, a hardware device with added-value software, is now available for purchase throughout Europe from SmartJog and its network of resellers.
SmartJog is a subsidiary of the TDF Group and the operator of a highly secure and managed distribution network for digital audiovisual content. SmartJog manages a major worldwide network exchanging media content between broadcasters, distributors and technical suppliers. SmartJog also created and set up the first multi-domestic European CDN dedicated to audiovisual media.
