MovieTransit™, Unique’s market leading content
distribution solution has been fully operational to all cinemas in Norway for

customers as well as the cinema clients. MovieTransit is a well proven solution
that provides a complete end-to-end service and we are delighted to be
partnering with Unique Digital to deliver a market leading solution in Finland.”
