XDC Is Deploying the Smartjog Library and Delivery Solution in 100 Cinemas Across Europe

XDC and SmartJog links extended agreement to jointly offer an end-to-end delivery solution to exhibitors
SmartJog, a digital delivery service provider, and XDC, a digital cinema deployment company, announced today that the SmartJog service is currently being deployed in 100 cinemas under contract with XDC.  The service, SmartJog’s digital cinema library solution, enables all cinemas to be connected to the SmartJog network as well as provides cinemas with a storage library for DCPs (Digital Cinema Packages). This is the largest order ever received by SmartJog from a single client and the deployment in theatres in Southern Europe and Austria is already underway. 

XDC will handle the installation and first tier of support with local Exhibitors, while SmartJog will provide the end-to-end service including the hardware and software solution in cinemas, permanent optimized satellite capacity, supervision and additional support to XDC. 

The deployment is in progress in Portugal and in Belgium, and XDC plans to deploy the SmartJog services to additional cinemas within the next 2 years, which will mean an additional 200 cinemas connected to the SmartJog network. Under the terms of the agreement, XDC will also use SmartJog for the delivery of DCPs, and SmartJog will use the XDC Digital Content Lab for joint mastering and electronic delivery services, as well as to supply a fast emergency recovery support.

“We have selected the SmartJog library to equip the XDC sites because SmartJog offers with its robust solution for the electronic satellite distribution, a Library Management System for DCP storage. The SmartJog library is fully integrated with our TMS, the CineStore Plaza. This enables full installation in technical room, avoiding useless duplication of equipment” says, Thierry Van der Kaa, VP Information Systems & Operations for XDC.

“As we continue to expand our digital cinema roll-out in Europe, we’re happy to expand our footprint to interconnect all the mastering facilities, distributors, and cinema chains.  XDC is a key player in the digital cinema industry and we are excited to extend our agreement and provide a complete solution for Exhibitors,” says Nicolas Dussert, Director of Theatrical Sales for SmartJog. 

Currently, SmartJog has around 300 cinemas and more than 1300 digital screens connected to its network in Europe.
