Microspace Extends Successful Digital Cinema Pilot Program with Delivery of DreamWorks’ Collateral

icrospace Communications Corporation (Microspace), the leading provider of point-to-multipoint satellite services, today announced that it has successfully delivered the DreamWorks LLC movie, Collateral, via its VELOCITY® satellite solution to select digitally-equipped movie theaters. The distribution, part of Microspace’s continuing digital cinema pilot program, follows its May 2004 VELOCITY delivery of Shrek 2.

“Microspace’s digital cinema initiative fully supports our own corporate strategy to provide the best movie presentation and best customer service possible. VELOCITY made the process easy for our projectionists,” said Pat Marshall, vice president of communications and specialty marketing for Cineplex Galaxy LP, owners of Galaxy Cinemas. The Galaxy Cinemas in Waterloo and Cambridge, Ontario, along with Famous Players in Vaughan, Ontario, participated in the Collateral distribution.

“Collateral was not filmed, but shot digitally,” says Mark Christiansen, head of operations for DreamWorks distribution. “Digital projection via Microspace’s satellite distribution gives audiences a pixel-by-pixel exact reproduction of director Michael Mann’s work.”

Microspace’s VELOCITY service is a solution for distributing video, data and audio content from one location to many. The technology has been tested and proven for the digital cinema industry, specifically in the Digital Cinema Laboratory, a unit of the Entertainment Technology Center at the University of Southern California (USC). Microspace donated a complete system to USC for testing in conjunction with other digital cinema technologies.

According to Sam Matheny, manager of digital cinema development for Microspace, “VELOCITY has proven its ability to distribute digital content in a cost-effective and efficient manner. We are putting this technology into action for the benefit of moviegoers and distributors and we are poised for growth.”

Microspace plans to continue the pilot through the rest of the year by growing the network of theaters in key US markets.
