KenCast is proud to announce its deal with DCDC (Digital Cinema Distribution Coalition), the joint venture satellite distribution operation between Warner Bros, NBC Universal, Lionsgate, The Walt Disney Company, Paramount Pictures and DCIP (Digital Cinema Implementation Partners).
KenCast will provide large cinema movie file delivery and live-event streaming into theaters with their EdgeSpan CinemaPro appliance and the EdgeSpan Enterprise server. The installation covers 1500 CinemaPro appliances to theaters nationwide, and includes all AMC, Regal, Cinemark movie theatres as well as other theatre chains.
KenCast's EdgeSpan CinemaPro is currently used by top-grossing movie houses in North America and South America, choosing to upgrade to state-of-the-art content distribution capability for optimal delivery of Hollywood movies to theatres. The CinemaPro enables delivery of very large movie files and live events, and includes simultaneous recording for "time-shifting" with its DVR features, allowing delivery to multiple screens, as well as recording of the event for later play out.
KenCast CEO Bill Steele said of this deal "The DCDC platform represents the next generation of distribution for these hallowed Hollywood studios to their long-time partners, the theatre chains. We are delighted to be chosen for the content delivery networking piece of this state of the art solution that DCDC has created."
