Microspace Beams Chicken Little from the Sky to Theaters for Walt Disney Pictures

Satellite Delivery of Digital Cinema is Cost-Effective, Secure, and Seamless
Microspace Communications Corporation (Microspace), the leading provider of point-to-multipoint satellite services, today announced that it provided digital delivery for Disney’s Chicken Little on November 4th, via its VELOCITY® satellite service and Kodak digital CineServers. Microspace distributed the feature presentation to the Galaxy Cineplex in Ontario, Canada.

“Walt Disney Pictures is one of the first movie studios to make active strides toward mainstream delivery of digital cinema,” said Chuck Viane, president, distribution, Buena Vista Pictures. "For several years, our goal has been to demonstrate the advantages of digital delivery over traditional film, and ‘Chicken Little’ is a giant leap forward in accomplishing it.”

“Satellite-powered digital cinema will be in the forefront of the motion picture industry in the coming year,” said Joe Amor, Vice President and General Manager of Microspace. “We are thrilled to be working with Disney, Kodak and Galaxy Theaters on the digital delivery of “Chicken Little”. We have been working to earn the confidence and trust of all involved in the digital cinema community and will continue those efforts.”

“For Kodak Digital Cinema, this is further proof that Kodak is ready for the future, now,” said Drena Rogers, director of worldwide sales for Kodak Digital Cinema. “Working with Microspace and our long-term partners at Disney, we’re proud to be able to reliably and confidently display Microspace’s satellite-delivered feature presentation. And, with Kodak digital pre-show systems already installed in Cineplex Galaxy theatres, this is a natural step forward in helping them display superior presentations.”

Microspace was the first digital cinema service provider to deliver a standardized version of a digital motion picture via satellite. As a member of the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers’ DC28 committee, Microspace has provided input for the recommended standards for digital cinema. Additionally, Microspace has been a long time sponsor of the Digital Cinema Laboratory’s research and testing initiatives and has donated a complete VELOCITY® system to further the advancement of digital cinema.

Microspace’s VELOCITY® eliminates the expenses of producing and delivering individual film print. Since early 2004, Microspace has been working to enhance the theater experience by providing digital satellite delivery for several motion pictures, including “Shrek 2,” “Collateral,” and “Shark Tale.”
