Digi-Flicks Entertainment Changes Name to DFE Technologies

Name Change Signals Expansion to Broad-based Digital Cinema and Post-productionTechnology Company
Digi-Flicks® Entertainment, a leader in digital cinema research and technology, is officially changing its name to DFE Technologies, effective today. Best known for its Digital Cinema Delivery System, a complete end-to-end solution for distributing high-density digital content, the company is rebranding itself to reflect its commitment to developing a broad range of entertainment-related technologies including leading-edge digital cinema solutions, and announcing its entry into other areas such as digital film post-production.

The announcement was made at Showeast 2005 by Mark Jankins, Chief Technology Officer of DFE Technologies. The company’s new website also is public today (www.dfetechnologies.com).

“Our name change to DFE Technologies signals our ongoing transformation to a entertainment technology company with emphasis on digital cinema and digital post-production,” said Jankins. “With digital cinema on the cusp of becoming part of the movie-going experience, a broad range of technologies are necessary to support all parts of the entertainment production chain: from the studios where product is created, to the post houses that process and edit the content, to the distributors and theaters where content is screened. DFE Technologies is developing products to stimulate the growth of this community, based on its expertise with handling, storing and distributing high-density digital content.”

Through its sister companies, PlasterCITY Digital Post, a Hollywood-based post-production facility and Ears XXI Productions, a digital film production company founded by filmmaker Christopher Coppola, all avenues of digital cinema technology will be explored, Jankins added.

At Showeast, DFE Technologies is showcasing a pre-production prototype of the Digital Cinema Delivery System. Components include:
● DFE Network Port: A network-attached storage device designed for exhibitors which delivers a full gigabit of network connectivity. Each Network Port contains two drive bays for rugged DFE SmartPacs that are hot-swappable. The Network Port is rack mounted with a 2RU chassis. Network connectivity is maintained even when drives are not installed.
● DFE SmartPacs: A rugged storage and distribution solution for digital cinema content. Each SmartPac contains two drives: a 250 or 400 GB SATA drive, and a separate memory for storing status drive performance and user-defined data. Drives are encased in a protective milled aluminum shell Each SmartPac includes a rugged shipping case which simplifies distribution to and from exhibitors.
● DFE Duplicator: Creates identical copies of DFE SmartPacs. Additional modules can be added to increase duplication capacity as necessary, with no increase in duplication time. Sector-by-sector duplication via a two-pass duplication algorithm ensures that all duplicated drives are identical.
● DFE Drive Diagnostic Backbone: Unique technology that continually monitors every drive throughout duplication, use and reuse by exhibitors. The DFE Duplicator analyzes the “health” of each drive’s performance to insure perfect failure-free picture delivery to theaters.
About DFE Technologies: DFE Technologies, a leader in digital cinema, is ushering in a new era of digital cinema content distribution with a suite of products designed specifically for use by studios, distributors, and exhibitors. Studios are already making the transition to digital, and more and more exhibitors are beginning to embrace this digital revolution. The DFE Technologies product suite bridges the gap between studios, distributors, and exhibitors with a rugged, reliable, and easy-to-use transport and transfer mechanism designed specifically for digital cinema.
