Microspace Becomes First to Deliver a Motion Picture via Satellite to ShoWest

Leading Digital Cinema Distributor Beams DreamWorks Pictures’ Disturbia to Las Vegas
Microspace Communications Corporation (Microspace), the leading distributor of digital cinema via satellite, today announced that it will deliver the Paramount Pictures’ release of DreamWorks Pictures’ Disturbia to ShoWest, the most prestigious and longest-running convention and tradeshow exclusively for the cinema exhibition and distribution community. The exclusive pre-release screening of Disturbia will represent the first time a motion picture has been delivered via satellite to ShoWest.

“Paramount fully embraces the distribution of digital cinema content via satellite to deliver the highest quality presentation to exhibitors,” said Mark Christiansen, executive vice president of operations at Paramount. “Over the past years, Microspace has distributed motion pictures from our studios to exhibitors in a secure and reliable manner.”

“We’re thrilled by the opportunity to partner with Paramount to deliver the first motion picture via satellite at ShoWest,” said Curt Tilly, manager of digital cinema distribution for Microspace. “Paramount has recognized the value in and supports the distribution of digital cinema via satellite, and we continue to work closely together to deliver the latest motion pictures to exhibitors in North America.”

Microspace collaborates with studios, content preparation companies and exhibitors to utilize satellite distribution and its benefits. The proven workflow and electronic delivery of Microspace’s satellite distribution provides the industry with a turn-key solution for content delivery and minimizes the potential issues and costs associated with physical delivery. Through the use of two discrete satellite systems, movies and keys are delivered on-time, every-time at Microspace connected theatres.

Microspace will deliver Disturbia via an Intelsat satellite to ShoWest, where it will be received by equipment from Dolby Laboratories. The core of the Dolby® Digital Cinema system consists of the Dolby Show Store and Dolby Show Player, which together provide everything needed to load, store, decode and deliver pristine digital movies to digital cinema projectors. The accompanying Dolby Show Manager software application provides complete operational control and enables users to perform advanced scheduling either locally or remotely.

“This is an exciting time for digital cinema, and Dolby is honored to be working with Microspace on this ShoWest first,” said Tim Partridge, senior vice president and general manager, Dolby Laboratories. “Dolby realizes satellite distribution is important to the world of digital cinema and the Dolby Digital Cinema system is a key ingredient in providing secure and immaculate playback.”

Disturbia, starring Shia LaBeouf and Carrie-Anne Moss, opens nationwide April 13th.
