SmartJog offers an electronic solution for last-minute delivery to the Cannes Film Festival and Market
SmartJog has delivered trailers, showreels, DVD elements and a digital movie (DCP), for several studio clients in Cannes.
SmartJog, the global leader in secure digital delivery of entertainment media, is currently servicing last-minute deliveries to the Cannes Film Festival by providing reliable and cost-effective full-service delivery through its SmartExpress service. Cannes based UTRAM recently joined the SmartExpress network to offer an electronic solution for deliveries to Cannes in order for clients to meet important deadlines.
At the half way point of the festival, content including trailers, showreels, DVD elements, and a DCP were sent via SmartJog to Cannes from London, Los Angeles, and New York. The content was then couriered to various places around the festival including on the beach, penthouses, and screening rooms at the Palais. The transfer of the DCP, for a world-wide premiere event, was one of the first of its kind to be delivered entirely via satellite from Los Angeles to the Cannes Film Festival.
SmartExpress provides studios, distributors, and producers a way to meet their tight deadlines throughout the Festival. From locations around the world, digitized content is securely and quickly sent via SmartJog to UTRAM, the new SmartExpress facility located in Cannes. From there, the material is output to the specified tape or DVD and delivered to the final recipient, getting the content to the Festival faster than a plane or normal shipping methods.
SmartExpress will continue service to Cannes even after the completion of the Festival to fulfill other requests including future markets. SmartJog’s SmartExpress service currently reaches 44 territory facilities in 40 countries, covering all major cities worldwide. By using SmartExpress, clients avoid the delay and logistic hassles of mailing a tape, fiber feeds, expensive satellite uplink, or airplane-couriered delivery.
