As its Technical Provider to Deliver Digital Cinema Content
SmartJog, a TDF Media Services entity and global leader in managed digital delivery services with over 1400 Theaters connected in Europe signs with VS2, Portugal’s main independent local mastering lab. This agreement enables VS2 to use SmartJog’s delivery platform service to distribute Digital Cinema -preshow content, trailers, and feature films- directly to theaters connected in Portugal.
Together with SmartJog, VS2 will ensure a reliable and secure DCP (Digital Cinema Package) circuit between Portuguese distributors and Portuguese SmartJog connected theaters (as of today Lusomundo exhibition, NLC, UCI). Digital Cinema content is sent through the SmartJog community using its state-of-the-art file transfer network via satellite and ADSL/Fiber, which includes web-based file management interface, monitoring and support, and cloud-storage solutions. The service gives clients the opportunity to electronically receive their DCPs without having to manage physical ones (HDD).
"This partnership will represent new business opportunities for VS2 and a major technical improvement in the contents reception and expedition in a secure way between their origins and final destinations in theaters all over the globe. It also represents the beginning of a new kind of service offer towards our clients on what management library content concerns.” says Bruno Figueiredo, CEO of VS2.
“The highlight of this partnership is that SmartJog enables VS2 to operate a full digital delivery workflow from lab to cinema. VS2 can receive content electronically from any of the more than 250 labs and content providers connected to SmartJog worldwide, and then securely deliver advertising, trailers, feature films, promotional and alternative content to all cinemas connected in Portugal” says Nicolas Dussert, Director of European Theatrical Sales for SmartJog.
