Rave Motion Pictures Commits 445 Screens To Christie/AIX Deployment Plan As Digital Cinema Roll-out Momentum Continues

Access Integrated Technologies, Inc. (“AccessIT”) (NASDAQ: AIXD) today announced that Rave Motion Pictures (“Rave”) (www.ravemotionpictures.com), one of the fastest growing and most prominent independent exhibitors in the country, has signed a contract with Christie/AIX, a wholly owned subsidiary of AccessIT, for the initial installation of 445 state-of-the-art digital cinema systems. Rave currently has 23 multiplexes in nine states with plans to add 4 more locations throughout the balance of 2006. It has operations in Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, Tennessee, Alabama and Florida; and as part of its 2006 expansion, it will add two additional states, Michigan and Pennsylvania. Rave is the sixth exhibition company to contract with AccessIT for its total conversion to digital cinema; its commitment brings the total number of screens for the Christie/AIX deployment to almost 3,000 of the planned 4,000.

Chuck Goldwater, President and COO of Christie/AIX, commented: “Rave’s vision and passion as an industry leader is further enhanced by their commitment now to digital cinema. We are proud and grateful that they have selected Christie/AIX to be their partner as they make this transition to digital. Their decision underscores the accelerating recognition and momentum within the exhibition industry. We look forward to working closely with Rave as they enter the digital era and to helping play an important part in their long-term development plans.”

“Rave is committed to superior quality in every aspect of our theatre operations,” said Tom Stephenson, CEO of Rave. “We are excited about bringing digital cinema to all our theatres, offering our patrons its dazzling, high-quality viewing experience, alternative content attractions, and unique applications like 3-D. We are confident that the Christie/AIX program will help us achieve those goals with their proven technology and Christie’s field service organization supporting us.”

Craig Sholder, Vice-President of Entertainment Solutions, Christie USA, added: "Rave is breaking new ground and demonstrating their industry leadership by recognizing the many benefits of digital cinema projection technology. With the installation of systems in conformance with the DCI standard, integrated by Christie's Entertainment Solutions Unit and installed and maintained by Christie's nationwide Managed Service and Support teams, moviegoers at Rave's theatres will be treated to the highest quality movie-going experience. Rave’s enthusiasm to introduce 3-D digital cinema systems is a testament to the enhancements exhibitors can make for their audiences once digitally enabled.”

The first Christie/AIX systems are already in operation in Rave’s Huntsville, AL and Peoria, IL locations. Installations are continuing at Rave locations throughout their circuit including 14 additional 3-D installations that will be ready for the opening of Sony Pictures’ “Monster House” on July 21. Total digital conversion of Rave multiplexes is scheduled for completion by mid-2007.

The Christie/AIX-funded deployment of Christie DLP Cinema® projectors also includes Doremi Cinema's DCP2000 JPEG servers, a central “library” server, two-way satellite communications, data storage equipment, Christie’s technical services, project management, and a 10-year maintenance plan which includes parts and labor. The central servers feature AccessIT’s unique vendor-neutral Theater Command Centre software, which allows all digitally-equipped screens in a multiplex to be networked, simplifying theater operations through centralized content management, scheduling and reporting.
