Kodak Digital Cinema Brings to ShoWest 2006 The Only Full Network Linking Pre-Show, Features

By Making the Most of What Digital Technology Offers,Kodak Digital Cinema Proves ‘The Network is the Power’
Kodak Digital Cinema will showcase its fully networked solution at ShoWest 2006, March 13-16 in Las Vegas. The Kodak system maximizes the potential that digital technology offers exhibitors and distributors and demonstrates Kodak’s capability to prove “The Network Is the Power.”

Kodak offers the only system that links all screens in a multiplex with digital pre-show, trailers and features, providing exhibitors a complete solution for the full theatrical presentation, right now. And because it’s designed to grow and expand as the capabilities of the technology and business needs of the customers grow too, it presents exhibitors with long-term value.

Only Kodak Digital Cinema offers exhibitors a system that seamlessly and efficiently connects all screens in a multiplex, and all elements of the movie-going experience. As exhibitors recognize that digital pre-show enables an immediate return on their investment -- while digital features open up new opportunities -- Kodak is the one company providing a complete solution that encompasses the entire theatrical presentation.

"Exhibitors and the creative community are poised to fully embrace the advantages that digital cinema provides," says Bob Mayson, general manager of Kodak Digital Cinema. "We're confident that the more they explore the options, and consider the full range of services available, the more they'll choose Kodak. Our networked solution offers a continuing tradition of service, record of innovation, broad scope of capabilities and overall ease of operation.”

It's that proprietary networked system that sets Kodak Digital Cinema apart from other companies, Mayson asserts.

From ticketing, to lobby displays, to in-theater automation, to digital pre-show, right on to digital feature projection, Kodak Digital Cinema offers an integrated system that offers the opportunity for savings in time and money.

A key element of the Kodak network is its proprietary CineServer JMN3000, being introduced at ShoWest. This flexible new unit plays either MPEG or JPEG-compressed data for 2D features, or 3D-compressed MPEG images. It provides all the playback capability the exhibitor needs for the future of digital cinema.

The Kodak network, enabled by the CineServer, efficiently and reliably handles a wide range of core tasks. Exhibitors can receive pre-show, trailers, features and keys over secure wide area network; the content then loads, stages, and stores itself ready for play via Kodak’s equally-secure local area network in each venue.

“This network simplifies life for multiplex management, and provides suppliers and exhibitors a breadth of options they've never had before,” Mayson says.

The networked Kodak Digital Cinema system also features unmatched diagnostic and upgrade capabilities. Kodak monitors the overall system health every five minutes, so potential problems can be remotely diagnosed - and often corrected, also remotely - before they disrupt a scheduled showing. System uptime is above 99 percent.

And Kodak Digital Cinema is continuing its parent company's century-plus commitment to service and innovation. In just the past two-and-a-half years, it has introduced nine new software upgrades for the digital pre-show, all based on market experience and in response to customer requests. Those free upgrades were installed automatically, via the Kodak network.

"The biggest overall advantage of a networked solution is that everyone is 'connected,' everyone can have the information they need to run their business," Mayson notes. "Reports can be generated electronically and configured to meet individual needs; and everyone has a 'window' into what played when and where - all via the network. Combine that with multiple layers of security that protect intellectual property and the advantages of the networked solution are clear."

Kodak, a company with roots that predate the birth of moving pictures, stands poised with Kodak Digital Cinema to continue to provide leadership and innovation for the industry.
