Thomson to Offer Content Mastering, Replication, and Key Management Services in Europe for Digital Cinema
Thomson (Euronext Paris: 18453; NYSE: TMS), through its Technicolor Digital Cinema business, today announced it is now able to provide digital cinema mastering, replication, distribution and key management services out of its West Drayton, United Kingdom digital intermediate and film facility.
The services now being offered out of London will enable Technicolor Digital Cinema to better serve its studio customers with a local presence in addition to its U.S.-based facilities in Burbank, CA and Wilmington, OH. The London-based location will also be able to master and replicate independent and local content, as well as advertising and alternative content.
“Being able to offer these key services in Europe enables us to provide global and regional film customers with the only fully-integrated film and digital-centric solution available in Europe,” commented Joe Berchtold, president, Technicolor Theatrical Services.
The London facility offers JPEG 2K encoding and encryption capabilities for United States-based studios, European distributors, and independent producers, creating digital cinema packages. In addition, it offers the ability to create a DCDM by taking the digital intermediate and converting this into the DCI-specified TIFF files in X’Y’Z colorspace.
Initially, the facility will have the capacity to replicate 200 drives per day, and will scale in line with demand. It will be able to replicate multiple versions of feature films simultaneously. Furthermore, Technicolor will be able to respond quickly to customer’s needs to create new versions of releases in Europe.
Finally, this location will directly interface with U.S.-based operations to provide seamless content, replication, and key management support in Europe.
