SmartJog Doubles its Satellite Capacity via Intelsat to Expand Delivery of Digital Cinema Services in Europe

SmartJog to increase its global digital cinema distribution on Intelsat 905
SmartJog unveiled today at CinemaCon, the annual convention of the motion picture exhibition industry, that it plans to double its satellite capacity over Europe. The multi-year agreement with Intelsat S.A., the world’s leading provider of satellite services, is for distribution of digital cinema services on Intelsat 905 at 335.5°East to customers in Europe.

This agreement reaffirms SmartJog’s role as a global leader in managed digital cinema distribution services. Currently, SmartJog delivers an average of 40,000 Digital Cinema Packages (DCPs) each month via Intelsat 905 to SmartJog’s network of more than 800 cinemas and 3,000 screens in 13 countries across Europe.

“With a second full time satellite transponder, we will have an aggregated throughput of 140 Mbps available for delivery to cinemas once the upgrade is completed with dual tuner DVB-S2 cards,” said Jean-Sebastien Petit, CEO of SmartJog. “This will enable speedy delivery of four to six large feature film DCPs per day, at an average of 60 gigabits per hour.”

“Intelsat continues to support the growth of SmartJog’s business as they develop innovative approaches to delivering non-linear content via our satellite network,” said Kurt Riegelman, SVP of global sales for Intelsat.  “This agreement will allow SmartJog to reach new audiences across Europe and greatly expand its viewership on Intelsat 905.”

SmartJog and Intelsat have also jointly developed digital distribution solutions that are scalable for SmartJog’s potential strategic partners in other markets, such as the Americas and Asia. SmartJog recently announced a new licensing and white-label product and service model available for third party digital cinema network operators.

Julien Seligmann, director of media services at TDF, the parent company of SmartJog, concludes, “Our agreement with Intelsat is key to our success as a global digital cinema distribution solutions leader. TDF is committed to supporting the growing need for fast and efficient digital cinema satellite delivery services from our customers.”
