Empire Cinemas to use Arqiva’s Digital Cinema Satellite System

Empire Cinemas has chosen to deploy Arqiva’s Digital Cinema Satellite Distribution System for their entire cinema circuit. This will enable all of Empire’s 16 UK sites to electronically receive Digital Cinema Packages and live events distributed by Arqiva.
 
Barrie Woolston, Commercial Director at Arqiva Satellite & Media, said, “We believe that satellite based electronic delivery is the future of cinema distribution as it provides cost effective, secure and simultaneous distribution of film content to multiple sites. It also enables the distribution of live alternative content which we see as a major growth area and an exciting commercial opportunity for exhibitors. Arqiva’s innovative satellite system, based on its IS905 platform, uses professional broadcast equipment to provide a robust and reliable electronic delivery system for both live and feature content. Empire’s decision to deploy this across their entire cinema chain is a resounding vote of confidence in both electronic delivery and Arqiva’s Digital Cinema Satellite System.” 

Justin Ribbons, CEO of Empire Cinemas, added: “We are committed to ensuring that our cinemas stay at the cutting edge of all cinema technology. In this regard the delivery of content by satellite to Empire’s growing network of digital cinemas is increasingly important. We believe that the quality and professionalism demonstrated by Arqiva make them an ideal technology partner for the Empire group.”
 
Arqiva provides robust satellite and IP networks for the managed delivery of entertainment, information and advertising worldwide. It works with leading media distributors to provide electronic delivery services of live events and feature films into digital cinemas across Europe.
