Belgium - Angleur—Apr 4, 2006

As a leading service provider, XDC is offering today a new option for JPEG 2000 systems alongside its MXF Interop MPEG2 servers.

Along with actively developing the XDC Hybrid (MXF Interop JPEG2000/MPEG2) CineStore™ Solo G3 server, XDC has decided to drastically accelerate its technology commitment and time-table.

“During this transition period with both JPEG 2000 and MPEG2 digital movie releases, XDC remains committed to offer its clients the best service level, and particularly the opportunity to play back all available digital cinema formats. Hence, XDC is now proposing a JPEG 2000 solution ready for shipping early May 2006”, says Bernard Collard, General Manager of XDC. “All XDC installations can benefit from the new option and have JPEG 2000 play-out capability alongside XDC MXF/MPEG2 server. The last words for exhibition are quality and reliability. We provide those, day in, day out, and they bring in more box office. For sure, this plan will assure that.”

The XDC JPEG 2000 Solution consists in installing the DCP2000 server provided by the expert company DoReMi alongside the XDC CineStore™ Solo G2 Server. Both equipments are connected to the same projector. A switching function is provided to screen either MPEG2 or JPEG 2000 content. “We have selected DoReMi servers because of their track record endorsed by the major studios”, says Thierry van der Kaa, XDC Product Manager. A one-year rental contract will be signed between XDC and the exhibitor, as optional equipment to XDC full exhibitor package. The modest rental charge - €200 per month - includes installation, training, guarantee, hotline, upgrade to DCI Compliancy and maintenance. “In spring 2007, XDC CineStore™ Solo G3 Hybrid Server be available, as long as all elements of the DCI Compliant & Interoperable JPEG 2000 format should be fully tested and certified by all international bodies. Then, XDC will swap both XDC CineStoreTM Solo G2 Server and XDC JPEG 2000 System for the new DCI Compliant XDC CineStore™ Solo G3 Hybrid Server. The rental contract shall be terminated. As a matter of fact, our solution is risk free for the exhibitor: no capital investment for the exhibitor who can rely on a field tested equipment”, adds Philippe Grandclaudon, XDC Sales Manager.

XDC has placed a sufficient order for the supplying of DoReMi servers and hence will duly respond to all potential market reactions.

“Since the exhibitor will only pay €2,400 for equipment valued more than €15,000, XDC is again acting as a third party investor in order to accelerate the digital cinema roll-out in Europe. This additional and comprehensive investment should be seen by the whole cinema industry as a clear commitment from XDC to support JPEG2000 as soon as possible.” concludes Laurent Minguet, CEO of XDC. “We hope that this plan will allow a larger number of titles to be screen digitally … offering to both exhibitors and moviegoers the opportunity to enjoy all the benefits of digital cinema.”
