Smartjog and Ymagis Sign A Partnership Agreement for the Electronic Delivery of DCPs to Cinemas

SmartJog, a digital delivery service provider, and Ymagis, a digital cinema deployment company, announced today, that they have signed a non-exclusive partnership agreement. Under the terms of this agreement, SmartJog and Ymagis have agreed to integrate their technologies to offer a full digital cinema solution to Ymagis cinema operator clients.

Ymagis will facilitate the deployment of the SmartJog solution for the digital delivery of the DCPs (Digital Cinema Packages) to theaters using the Ymagis Cinema Central Server, which is supplied to each of the cinemas under contract with Ymagis. In the first phase, operators will be able to equip their cinema with a SmartJog Gateway integrated with their Ymagis Central Server. In the next phase, Ymagis and SmartJog plan to install the SmartJog software solutions directly onto the Ymagis Cinema Central Server so that the latter can also serve as a reception Gateway.  Exhibitors will benefit from efficient use of equipment space and efficiency of workflows. Ymagis clients will have access to SmartJog digital delivery services similar to what they currently have with the Ymaginet service. The integration will be completely transparent, using the tools available on the Ymagis Central Server.

The two companies may use each other’s delivery network. In particular, the Ymagis mastering facility will be able to deliver DCPs to cinemas connected to the SmartJog network.

Initially, the implementation will begin with the French market, and next, the plan is to rapidly extend their services to all countries in which they have a presence. The two complementary services allow distributors and exhibitors to benefit from an integrated and complete solution for content distribution and reception.
