Microspace Communications Corporation Selects Entertainment Technology Consultants to Support Digital Demonstration Event

ETC to produce first public exhibition of Microspace’s satellite service to entertainment executives
Microspace Communications Corporation (Microspace), the operator of the largest business satellite broadcast network in the world, and Entertainment Technology Consultants (ETC), leading authorities in entertainment presentation quality, announced today that ETC will assist Microspace in producing a demonstration of its satellite service, VELOCITY®, for the digital cinema industry. The event will be held October 28 at the Digital Cinema Lab, a unit of the Entertainment Technology Center at the University of Southern California.

ETC will produce and coordinate Microspace's Hollywood premiere for this invitation-only event. Microspace will demonstrate its services by transferring movie clips from its network operations center in Raleigh, North Carolina to the Digital Cinema Lab in Hollywood, California.

“Entertainment Technology Consultants are recognized in the entertainment industry as the leading experts in the digital cinema market, so using their services in VELOCITY’s Hollywood debut was a must,” said Sam Matheny, Manager of Digital Cinema Development at Microspace. “This industry has a need to move large amounts of audio, video and data content simultaneously, something that satellite can do both reliably and affordably.”

Matheny has presented at the National Associations of Broadcasters’ Digital Cinema Summit on the topic of moving multimedia content to thousands of locations. He also coordinated Microspace’s donation of a complete satellite network package to the Digital Cinema Lab in May. This system has been distributing both live and stored content to the Lab on a test basis since it was installed. Microspace is also a member of the International Theatre Equipment Association (ITEA), SMPTE’s DC 28 Committee and has provided feedback to the Digital Cinema Initiative (DCI), a consortium of the seven major studios, on specifications for digital cinema standards.

“We are pleased that Microspace has selected ETC as a strategic partner for their Hollywood outreach,” said Loren Nielsen, co-founder of ETC. “Microspace’s more than 15 years of experience in the delivery of time-critical content to thousands of locations is a valuable asset that can help enable cost-effective delivery of movies to digital cinema theatres worldwide.”

Microspace introduced the VELOCITY system in 1996 to serve the business-to-business market and has been evolving the system's delivery capabilities to meet industry needs. The service rapidly transports both video imagery and data with no resolution limits.
