Arts Alliance Media Hires Industry Veteran Paul Chesney to Drive Growth of Digital Cinema Content Management and Delivery Business
Arts Alliance Media (AAM) announced today that it has appointed Paul Chesney as Director of Business Development, effective April 23rd. Chesney comes to AAM from Deluxe Media Services, where he was Worldwide SVP, Sales & Marketing. At AAM he will focus on strengthening the company’s film distributor relationships and ability to service and support digital cinema distribution with DCI-compliant digital cinema print packages, including encoding, encryption, mastering, duplication and delivery, as well as security key management.
During his 6 years at Deluxe, Chesney’s achievements included developing successful strategic business and marketing plans to ensure company growth, and negotiating key contracts and alliances throughout Europe with Warner Bros., Paramount, and Universal. Prior to Deluxe, Paul spent many years in the music and home entertainment industries, with companies including Technicolor, Buena Vista Home Entertainment and Warner Bros.
As well as providing installation, maintenance and financing services for digital cinema, AAM has also achieved several milestones with its digital cinema content processing services. To date, more than 100 titles have been handled by AAM (encoded, encrypted and delivered to cinemas on hard drives, along with security keys), and over 1000 digital prints have been shipped. The company was the first to commercially screen a JPEG2000 film in Europe, and today all encoding is in JPEG2000 format, and is all to current DCI standards. Distributor clients AAM has worked with include Buena Vista, Warner Bros., Optimum, Icon, UIP, Lionsgate, Momentum and Pathé.
Arts Alliance Media CEO, Howard Kiedaisch, said of the appointment: “Having known Paul for many years, I am delighted to welcome him to the AAM team, and excited at the wealth of European industry experience he brings with him. His appointment reinforces our commitment to being the leaders in the European digital cinema market”.
Paul Chesney commented: “AAM are a dynamic company on the cutting edge of digital distribution, both to the home and theatrically, and I am looking forward to working with them in their expansion into Europe and providing content management services to an increasing number of customers”.
