Technicolor Digital Cinema Reaches Industry Milestone With Release of 100th Digital Cinema Title

Leader in Digital Cinema Services and Technologies Prepares and Distributes International Digital Version of Warner Bros. Pictures’ Summer Blockbuster Hit, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Reinforcing its global leadership in the provision of digital cinema services and technologies to major film studios and exhibitors, Thomson (Euronext 18453; NYSE: TMS) today announced that Technicolor Digital Cinema, part of the Services division of Thomson, has reached an unparalleled industry milestone with the release of its 100th digital cinema title, the international version of the Warner Bros. Pictures’ summer blockbuster film, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. With the global introduction of the digital version of the film, Technicolor Digital Cinema has now managed over 285,000 digital cinema screenings worldwide to date for eight studios, more than any other provider in the marketplace today.

The international distribution of the digital cinema version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory will begin in Singapore, with a planned rollout to other markets in North America, Europe, and Asia later this month. In addition to managing the worldwide physical and electronic distribution of the title, Technicolor Digital Cinema also assisted Warner Bros. Pictures with content preparation, release booking and order management with exhibitors, generation of encryption and compression protocols, and key management for unlocking and uploading the film to digital projection systems. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is being released in a MFX interoperable file format, resulting in reduced production costs for the studio and ensuring interoperability across the various digital cinema server platforms.

“The international release of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory marks a significant achievement for Technicolor Digital Cinema and Thomson, and a major step forward in the ongoing evolution of digital cinema today,” said Ahmad N. Ouri, president of Technicolor Digital Cinema. “This milestone serves as yet another demonstrative proof point of Thomson’s leadership in and commitment to digital cinema as a viable entertainment vehicle now, and for years to come.”

Technicolor’s investment in digital cinema dates back to 1999, when the company partnered with The Walt Disney Company, Texas Instruments, and several exhibitors to demonstrate the concept of digital cinema in 11 countries across North America, Europe, and Asia. Today, Technicolor manages more than half of the digital cinema system installations in North America, and its portfolio of services includes content preparation, compression, encryption, distribution, and key management for digital cinema titles on a worldwide basis. The division also installs and services systems in theaters, supports all studio-approved compression formats, and maintains open standards for the digital delivery of movies to theaters.
