The digital age hits tipping point in theaters
as ACCESSIT INSTALLS 3,000TH DIGITAL CINEMA SYSTEM
Access Integrated Technologies, Inc. ("AccessIT") (NASDAQ:AIXD), the industry leader in digital cinema, announced today that the company has installed its 3,000th digital cinema system. The company is continuing to work toward its goal of completing its initial 4,000-screen deployment by the end of October.
“This is a significant milestone for AccessIT as well as for the theater owners and the studios whom we serve,” noted Bud Mayo, president and CEO of AccessIT. “Theater operators across the country are joining the digital age to gain better control of scheduling, faster and more efficient delivery of content and have access to alternative programming options to attract sales and drive new revenue streams.”
AccessIT’s Theatre Command CenterTM software, Christie DLP Cinema® projectors and other networked hardware combine to play both feature movies and PreFlix advertising. Integrated satellite systems enable the theatres to receive digital movies, 3D content and other material such as concerts and sporting events. AccessIT Digital Cinema is the only program today that combines all these features to enable exhibitors to realize all the operational and financial benefits of digital cinema technology.
To date, AccessIT has contracted to install close to 3,700 systems. Deployments have been completed with the following exhibitors: Allen Theatres, MJR Theatres, Showplace Cinemas, Marquee Cinemas, Neighborhood Cinema Group, Celebration! Cinema, Cinema West, Cinetopia, Emagine, UltraStar, Galaxy, Rave and Carmike Cinemas and AccessIT’s own Pavilion Digital Showcase Cinema.
