Paramount Pictures has teamed with Deluxe Entertainment Services Group to provide online screeners for the 2011-2012 awards season making it the first major studio to stream its awards films online. The studio will present its awards contenders including Rango Super 8 and Like Crazy and potentially additional titles later this season via Deluxe's proprietary platform. The Visual Effects Society was the first recipient of the online screeners. The Deluxe platform allows Paramount to securely stream films backed by unique watermarking of the content tied to the individual recipients with DVD quality picture and a controlled window of availability. Content can be played back on a variety of PC and Mac devices including the iPad and iPad2 as well as home entertainment systems with compatible HDMI cable connection. We are excited to present these films for online streaming and are hopeful that this will be a quality experience allowing us to offer more opportunities for our filmmaker partners to reach appreciative viewers says Paramount's president of domestic marketing & distribution Megan Colligan. We are delighted Paramount chose Deluxe's digital screener platform. By continually expanding and customizing our services we are able to best support the rapidly changing needs of our entertainment industry clients says Michael Alvarez president Deluxe Media Management. As the leading technology artists in the entertainment industry we at VES are pleased that Paramount thought to come to us first to inaugurate this process says VES executive director Eric Roth.
