Ymagis Group and National Film Transport have agreed to jointly provide Digital Cinema Package duplication services to the UK film industry. As part of this new partnership, Ymagis, through its London-based subsidiary, has set up a new duplication hub for hard drives, using proprietary technology, at NFT’s facility near Heathrow Airport.
"We are very excited about this new collaboration with such a trusted business player at a time when we are extending our global services to the UK film industry,” said Manel Carreras, Ymagis’ UK general manager and group senior vice president marketing & content services business development. “Placing our proprietary technology with NFT enables us to access their fantastic cinema distribution service instantly. This gives a substantial competitive advantage. We are now able to handle a large volume of fast-copying of CRU drives in a short period of time and have them distributed immediately by the industry’s finest logistics provider."
"The choice Ymagis made to partner with us is something we are proud of. Our company has been in film logistics for a long time now, providing a tailored content delivery service every week to cinema operators across the UK and Ireland. This new collaboration is another opportunity for us to extend the range of our existing services, and we are delighted to partner with such fast-growing company,” said Simon Carter, general manager of NFT.
With its capacity to process the duplication of a very high volume of CRU drives with a quick turnaround, Ymagis Group’s proprietary technology, now available in the UK and Ireland in conjunction with NFT, addresses the needs of the British cinema industry, ensuring physical content delivery to cinemas in record times. The company maintains similar duplication units at its various digital cinema labs across Europe: Paris, Barcelona, Berlin, Liège and Rome.
NFT is a FACT-certified company. FACT is the UK’s leading organization for content protection and anti-piracy operations and acts in film, TV, technology and sports right industries.
