XDC, Christie and FTT Complete Year One of a Successful Implementation and Extend Their Digital Cinema Presence in Germany.

XDC is very proud to announce that with its partners Christie and FTT, it has successfully installed 63 Digital Cinema theatres across, Germany, Austria and Switzerland, making these countries the leaders in the Digital Cinema roll out in Europe. XDC, FTT and Christie have decided to consolidate their preferred partnership in Germany and hence wish to keep the momentum in order to accelerate the migration to Digital Cinema by offering a reliable and experienced winning team solution to the market.

“We understand that Digital Cinema will grow in a significant way in Germany within the next two years and we do want to position our team as the most powerful and reliable on the market. XDC will extend all needed efforts to respond to our customers’ needs, both distributors and exhibitors. The new XDC business proposal has been updated and is now more open and more attractive”, said Bernard Collard, General Manager XDC International.

“Digital content is a key parameter for roll out in Europe and we are now very confident that XDC, by offering various open solutions to the content providers, will attract more and more international and local digital releases to the XDC financed screens”, said John B. Birchell Hughes, Senior Vice President Production and Distributor relations for XDC International.

“We are very excited about the current developments and very happy to work together with the most experienced installers of Digital Cinema like Christie’s partner Film Ton Technik in Germany”, said Richard Nye, Christie European Market Development Manager.

“The fact that we have just received another order from XDC for 20 Christie CP2000 DLP Cinema® projectors clearly demonstrates the acceptance of Digital Cinema in Europe, Christie’s unsurpassed mark of quality and the pioneering efforts of XDC within the European market place”, said Dale Miller, Christie Vice President EMEA.

“Integration and support have now become day to day experience for the FTT savve engineers. We are very proud to be part of the winning team and we’ll continue to consolidate our resources in order to offer our customers the best services in a digital world still living together with the 35mm environment”, said Thomas Rüttgers, Managing Director FTT.

Last but not least, XDC is fully committed to offer up to date solutions to its customers and has just announced a JPEG 2000 solution provided by the expert company DoReMi. Servers will be ready for shipping by early May this year. “This comprehensive investment should be seen by all the industry as a clear commitment from XDC to support JPEG 2000 as soon as possible.” concludes Laurent Minguet, CEO of XDC. “We hope that this strategic move from XDC will allow a larger number of movies to be screened digitally … offering to both exhibitors and moviegoers the opportunity to enjoy all the benefits of Digital Cinema.”
