Access Integrated Technologies to Offer A Plan to Ensure Exhibitors’ Digital Cinemas Are 3D Ready in its Christie/AIX Deployment Plan

In-Three / NuVision Technology Will Be Made Available Initially for 2,300 Screens Nationwide
Access Integrated Technologies, Inc. (“AccessIT” or the “Company”) (AMEX: AIX) today announced that its Christie/AIX unit has agreed to install the necessary hardware enabling its exhibitor customers to begin showing 3D movies on all digitally-equipped screens through a non-exclusive agreement with In-Three, Inc. (www.In-Three.com) and NuVision Technologies (www.NuVisiontechnologies.com). The agreement calls for the installation of Infra-Red Emitters provided by NuVision for its entire first-year Christie/AIX deployment of digital cinema systems, covering approximately 2,300 screens nationwide.

In-Three has developed and successfully demonstrated a proprietary technology that converts any traditional 2D content, including first-run motion pictures into high-quality 3D imagery without eye fatigue enabling it to be watched for hours. Its “Dimensionalization®” technology was featured at ShoWest, the entertainment industry’s largest tradeshow in March 2005, highlighted by a demonstration hosted by some of the world’s best-known film directors including George Lucas, Peter Jackson, Randal Kleiser, Robert Rodriguez and James Cameron. Movies “Dimensionalized®” utilizing In-Three’s 3D technology work with both special infra-red-controlled “active shutter” 3D glasses from NuVision or the Z-filter system recently deployed for Disney’s “Chicken Little” release. Because the In-Three/NuVision active 3D shutter glasses do not require special silver screens, added projection hardware, or licensing agreements with exhibitors, Christie/AIX can provide this capability at no cost while still permitting the exhibitor to add additional 3D technologies later on if deemed necessary.

Under terms of the new agreement, In-Three in cooperation with its 3D eyewear partner NuVision, will provide AccessIT and participating exhibitors with the required enabling technology, including infra-red emitters, 3D glasses (starter set), and 3D test & sample content, without charge. Exhibitors electing to deploy the technology can purchase the active 3D shutter glasses directly from NuVision. As a vendor-neutral technology provider, AccessIT also intends to work with other 3D technology companies to offer its exhibitor partners flexibility in choosing from multiple solutions.

“One of digital cinema’s core attractions is its ability to provide viewers with an unmatched visual experience -- and 3D is one of several unique applications of this technology. Viewing 3D images on large movie screens at 2K resolution is an experience that can not be replicated at home. Through the use of technology such as In-Three’s Dimensionalization® process, movies of all types, both new and old, can now easily provide audiences with a new entertainment experience,” commented Russell Wintner, president and chief operating officer of AccessIT’s Digital Media Division. “This agreement also furthers our goal of making available to exhibitors a complete range of ancillary products and technologies for capitalizing on the vast potential of digital cinema.”

Michael Kaye, President and CEO of In-Three, Inc. said: “We are very pleased to be working with AccessIT, along with our 3D glasses partner NuVision, to help provide exhibitors with 3D ready digital theatres. This is a joint commitment between AccessIT, In-Three, and NuVision, that will bring the benefits of 3D technology to moviegoers nationwide. We are very impressed with the strategy and commitment of AccessIT and their ability to accelerate the wide-scale adoption of digital cinema. Exhibitors are going to be pleasantly surprised when they realize that their newly installed AccessIT digital cinema equipment is actually capable and ready to show 3D movies.”

AccessIT's Christie/AIX unit serves as the funding vehicle and administrator for the company's 4,000-screen digital cinema rollout plan expanded significantly from the total originally announced in June 2005. Christie/AIX will act as the financing intermediary between content-owners -- major studios and independent distributors, among others -- and exhibitors who will receive turnkey Digital Cinema systems that conform with the DCI Technical Specification, including Christie DLP Cinema® projectors and related hardware and software.
