Our proven satellite-based delivery platform on IS905 offers studios and exhibitors significant cost savings as well as simplicity, speed and security. This powerful combination has led to an ever increasing uptake and the roll-out of our network across Europe; we are now delivering at least ten full-length feature films to hundreds of cinemas every month. This makes the one hundred mark a clear indicator of the huge momentum our network has gathered and the tremendous potential for Digital Cinema in the years ahead."
