Unique Digital Signs Multi-Million Pound Deal with BT for First UK Cinema Broadband Distribution

BT and Unique Digital, the international digital cinema software / distribution supplier, have reached a long term agreement to roll out the first broadband distribution network to cinemas in the UK.
 
The network will enable content to be streamed to cinemas via static IP addresses, and the cinemas will then store the content ready to be screened to audiences. This will allow Unique to move advertising, film and alternative content on a point to point basis, allowing dynamic programming and reporting to all cinemas in the UK.
 
BT Business will provide Unique with high bandwidth, low latency network connectivity to each location. BT’s network will link geographically dispersed, resilient Tier 3 Data Centres, each with dedicated 10Gbps connections to support Unique’s solution.
 
MovieTransit™, Unique’s market leading content distribution solution, has been fully operational to all cinemas in Norway for over 18 months, and many more sites in Denmark, Sweden and Ireland.  In that time over 100,000 film and advertising packages (over 15 PetaBytes of data in total) have been delivered.
 
The system comprises a bespoke client receiver per cinema, running Unique’s proprietary software that uses available bandwidth with dedicated local distribution nodes connected to Unique’s own 20GB terrestrial backbone supported by BT in the UK. This will allow sufficient capacity for multi-casting for streaming content, and will also enable consumer–led dynamic programming of content.
 
“Unique digital is delighted to be partnering with BT to deliver this game-changing network to cinemas across the UK.  BT was head and shoulders above the competition, both in their ability to manage a rapid roll-out and also to work with us on driving alternative content opportunities for cinemas,” stated Chris Hagan, Chairman of Unique Digital Limited. “We are on track to have over 600 sites connected to our MovieTransit system across UK and Ireland by the end of the year.”
 
John Dovey, MD UK Corporate, BT Business said: “Unique Digital came to us with a real challenge to help them deliver an innovative solution for supplying cinemas with content that would replace the current ‘man with a van’ system. Some HD films are fast approaching 1 Terabyte in size now, with 3D and new, more sophisticated audio formats likely to increase file sizes further in future.  The BT network has the capability to provide Unique with unlimited capacity, so no throttling, which will ensure their customers get a quality service that works. We’re delighted to be working with Unique on this UK first.”
