Arqiva has enabled Digital Cinema partner Arts Alliance Media to include a live Question & Answer session with special screenings of the acclaimed documentary film ‘Ride, Rise, Roar’.
This is a David Byrne concert film that blends riveting onstage performances with intimate details of the creative collaborations that make the music and performance happen. The live Q&A was filmed and distributed to cinemas via Arqiva’s Digital Cinema satellite platform, enabling audiences around the country to enjoy the unique event as it happened.
George Eyles, Head of Digital Cinema at Arqiva Broadcast & Media, said: “We work very closely with Arts Alliance Media to electronically distribute a wide range of live alternative events by satellite. The ability to film and uplink the feed live from the venue, using our comprehensive broadcast and satellite services, ensures technical simplicity and maximum distribution for rights holders. It gives every digitally enabled cinema the opportunity to offer customers a unique experience above and beyond the scheduled programme.”
