XDC Selected Official Digital Cinema Partner for Cannes Film Festival
As the official partner, XDC is providing all of the necessary equipment and technical support for more than 16 auditoriums using digital screening including the parallel sections during the May competition.
“XDC is very proud to announce its partnership with Cannes Film Festival—a momentous occasion that marks their 60th Festival. Producers, filmmakers and distributors are now convinced of the advantages to screen their movie digitally, and we can expect to receive additional films which will be prepared at the XDC Digital Content Lab,” says Bernard Collard, General Manager of XDC International.
“Last year, XDC collaborated with the French CST to operate the digital cinema equipment for all the digital movies presented during the Festival,” adds Alain Remond, General Manager of XDC France. “This year, XDC assures that the Festival will be efficiently deployed by the most advanced digital cinema technologies, such as JPEG2000 compression format and 3D projections.” The 60th Cannes Film Festival will then be an optimal competition that will showcase the best of the digital cinema industry.
