Twentieth Century Fox and Smartjog Announce Agreement for Electronic Distribution of Digital Cinema Content to Europe

Twentieth Century Fox and SmartJog announced today that they have signed a non-exclusive agreement for satellite distribution of digital cinema content to theatres in Europe.  Under the terms of the agreement, SmartJog will deliver Twentieth Century Fox movies in digital format to exhibitors connected to SmartJog’s Pan-European digital cinema network. 

Julian Levin, Executive Vice President, Digital Exhibition and Non-Theatrical Sales and Distribution, Twentieth Century Fox commented, ”we are very pleased to conclude a content distribution services agreement with SmartJog to deliver Fox’s digital movies via satellite to the ever increasing number of SmartJog equipped theatres across Europe. With the rapidly increasing footprint of digital projection systems, 2D and 3D, coupled with emerging electronic distribution platforms, SmartJog has taken a leadership role toward providing a more efficient electronic delivery methodology which we believe will ultimately dominate the means by which movies are delivered to theatres worldwide. We congratulate our colleagues at SmartJog and look forward to working closely with them in the future as they expand their base of theatres.”
SmartJog provides optimized transmission via satellite, network monitoring, traffic supervision and storage solutions tailored to the digital cinema industry.  SmartJog currently has over 160 cinemas and more than 800 screens connected to its network in Europe with over 300 sites planned by the end of the year.   

European Motion Picture exhibitors are already receiving digital cinema content via the SmartJog network, with over 70 feature films and hundreds of trailers and screen advertising content transmitted since early 2009. 
 
“We are thrilled about this agreement and look forward to providing Fox with a complete end-to-end digital delivery solution to theatres,” said Julien Seligmann, CEO at SmartJog.  “As the cinema world continues the transition to an all-digital workflow, Fox’s selection of SmartJog as an electronic delivery method to cinemas, showcases their leadership role in the digital cinema community.”
