Microspace Digital Cinema Selected by Emerging Pictures to Deliver 2010/2011 Multi-Event Ballet in Cinema Series
Delivery of Bolshoi Ballet’s Nutcracker Kicked off Multi-Event Deal
Microspace Communications Corporation (Microspace), the leading distributor of digital cinema via satellite, announced today that it has been selected by Emerging Pictures to deliver its 2010/2011 Ballet in Cinema series. The Ballet marks the 20th live and alternative programming Microspace has delivered to date, with an additional 19 events already scheduled for delivery to movie theaters in 2011. Microspace began the agreement with the December 19 live Moscow transmission of holiday favorite “The Nutcracker” by the famed Bolshoi Ballet.
Microspace continues to grow its slate of live and alternative content programming deliveries to theater customers all across North America, further establishing its leadership role in delivering digital cinema via satellite to more than 3,500 screens in the United States, Mexico and Canada. Previously, Microspace has provided Emerging Pictures with satellite services for its ongoing Opera in Cinema series, coordinating and delivering live feeds from Milan, Barcelona, London and other international locations.
With more than 130 venues, Emerging has a network of commercial multiplexes, performing arts institutions, and independent art house theaters, tied together through digital technology – enabling them to cost effectively exhibit specialty films, documentaries, foreign language films, independent cinema and cultural programming.
“Emerging Pictures selected Microspace to deliver all our Culture in Cinema series for its expertise in delivering content under a tight timeline at a very competitive cost,” said Barry Rebo, managing partner, Emerging Pictures. “Microspace plays an important role in coordinating the technical efforts between our content partners and theaters, insuring the content plays flawlessly and looks amazing on the big screen. Our international content partners - RAI Trade, Opus Arte, CielEcran, and others - have all come to respect Microspace as an invaluable member of the Emerging team.”
Microspace is a one-stop-shop for a live and alternative content delivery, providing consulting services and acting as the conduit between content creators, exhibitors and production teams.
“The live and alternative content business is a very nice complement to our digital cinema delivery via satellite services, because of our large installed base in North America and our experience in delivering content on a regular basis for virtually all of the major movie studios,” said Joe Amor, vice president and general manager, Microspace. “With more than 19 event programming already scheduled for 2011, this sector of our business continues to grow at a rapid rate.”
Since 2005, Microspace has delivered 72 major motion pictures from nine studios, including the first 3-D movie and the first 4K movie via satellite using its VELOCITY® system. Microspace now services 260 theaters within the United States, Mexico and Canada including Allen Theaters, AMC, Carmike Cinemas, Celebration!
