certification and can ensure that level of continued performance for XDC.”

full support of Doremi. With a large deployment of digital cinemas across
Europe depending on the VPF model its technology and assistance fulfills a
vital role for our rapidly expanding business.”

capacity of more than 20,000 cinema servers allows it to provide all its
