icrospace Communications Corporation (Microspace), the leading provider of point-to-multipoint satellite services, today announced the successful delivery of the DreamWorks LLC movie, Shark Tale, via its VELOCITY® satellite solution to select digitally-equipped movie theatres in North America. The announcement represents the third such agreement this year between the companies as part of Microspace’s continuing digital cinema pilot program, which debuted with the May and August distributions of Shrek 2 and Collateral, respectively.
