EchoStar Satellite Services has developed a strong partnership with Deluxe one built on a common foundation of superior service and innovative thinking says Dean Olmstead president of EchoStar Satellite Services. Deluxe/EchoStar marks the next evolution in theatrical distribution and exhibition and gives distributors and movie theaters confidence in partnering with a proven digital cinema network. We began testing sites around the country with EchoStar about a year ago to determine how best to develop the network says Cyril Drabinsky president and CEO Deluxe Entertainment Services Group. The results confirmed that delivering feature films through our satellite network would provide optimum quality and reliability for our customers and present an open platform for easily accommodating a variety of digital delivery services.
