Access Integrated Technologies, Christie Team Up to Bring Movies to the Digital Screen in State-of-the-Art "2K" Format

AccessIT's Pavilion Digital Showcase Theatre Now Nation's Largest 2K Digital
Access Integrated Technologies, Inc. ("AccessIT") (AMEX: AIX) and Christie Digital Systems (Christie) today announced they have teamed up to outfit AccessIT's wholly-owned Pavilion Digital Showcase Theatre with five, state-of-the-art 2K Digital Cinema projectors. Digital 2K-movie presentation offers viewers approximately twice the resolution of typical high-definition programming and is the highest-fidelity, projector technology currently commercially available. This installation makes the historic Brooklyn, New York-based Pavilion Theatre the most advanced digitally equipped 2K venue in full-time operation in the United States.

Installed to premier some of Hollywood's most exciting blockbuster films in the majority of Digital Cinema theatres around the world, Christie's CP2000 projector offers the highest level of brightness and contrast ratio on the market today. Beginning this month, digital movies will be delivered to the Pavilion and other locations via satellite using AccessIT's proprietary distribution software and technologies. Once downloaded to AccessIT's secure central server in the Pavilion, the decrypted and decompressed movie files will be digitally projected onto five screens equipped with Christie's CP2000 2K projectors featuring DLP Cinema™ technology.

"This joint effort is the natural outcome of a long-standing collaboration between our respective companies, whose Digital Cinema technologies complement one another," said Bud Mayo, President and CEO of AccessIT. "We chose Christie, not only because of its organizational commitment to Digital Cinema, but also because of its responsiveness to addressing all of our needs as an exhibitor and owner of the Pavilion Theatre as a digital showcase. To date, no other company has shown Christie's level of understanding of the entire process."

Russell Wintner, President and COO of Access Digital Media, added, "We are working closely with the entire Christie staff to simplify the installation process as well as ensure streamlined in-theatre operations after installation."

Jack Kline, President/COO, Christie USA, also commented, "We are delighted to be partnering with AccessIT on this important advancement in Digital Cinema. AccessIT's best-of-breed software and services and integrative system approach complements our own leading-edge DLP Cinema projectors. We look forward to using this installation to showcase how seamless it is for exhibitors to transition to Digital Cinema."
