Belgium - Angleur —May 19, 2006
From now, all feature films from Wanda Vision will be available for Digital Cinema
In the future, the Spanish company Wanda will distribute all its new motion
pictures in digital format on all XDC screens. "Wanda is consequently the first
Spanish distributor to commit itself to make all its movies available for digital
projections", says Régis Raway, XDC Services Sales Manager.
Wanda will collaborate with XDC, which is deploying the largest pan-European digital
cinema roll out. XDC finance digital cinema projectors and CineStore™ servers that
meet the cinema industry standards and positions itself as a logistics & services
provider for the distributors. Up to now, XDC has equipped over 210 installations
"We are convinced that digital screenings attract moviegoers and allow a better
diffusion of the movies on screens. There is a direct result at the cashdesks",
says José Maria Morales, Consejo Delegado at Wanda. "Digital Cinema offers a perfect
image quality, which remains absolutely constant to the original from the first
press screening until the last projection of a movie’s exhibition cycle. The direct
benefit for both, exhibitors and distributors, is an important reduction of the
workload for the preparation of the shows and an impressive flexibility for the
programming", ads Bernard Collard, XDC General Manager.
"At XDC, we work each day to make digital cinema a concrete, reliable and advantageous
offer for the distributors and of course the exhibitors. That’s why I’m so pleased
that Wanda has chosen XDC as a partner for the masterisation, the coding and the
duplication of its digital copies", announces Régis Raway, XDC Services Sales Manager.
"In addition to the reduction of the cost of the distribution supports, XDC offers
full logistical services to the distributors from the reception of the master up
to the projection of the movie in optimal conditions".
The first Wanda movies which will be prepared by XDC in digital format are: "La
Gran Final" from Gerardo Olivares (part of the official selection at the Berlin
Film Festival 2006) and "La Bicicleta" from Sigfrid Monleon. Those movies have
been filmed in high definition.
