International Datacasting Corporation in partnership with its Australian-based distributor OmniCast has received an order from Global Vision Networks for the provision of a new digital cinema broadband distribution network for Hoyts Cinemas in Australia and New Zealand. Under the order IDC has supplied their SFX4104 multimedia satellite receivers to Global Vision for installation throughout their network for Hoyts digital satellite cinemas. Hoyts Cinemas one of Australia's leading entertainment corporations owns and operates 45 cinemas with over 400 screens and more than 75 000 seats throughout Australia and New Zealand. We are pleased to work with IDC and OmniCast on this project. We take a great deal of pride in our innovative approach to all aspects of the cinema experience for our customers and by adding IDC's products and technology into the Hoyts digital cinema satellite distribution network throughout Australia and New Zealand we continue to lead the way in this market says Michael Fleck managing director of Global Vision. Our experience with IDC has proven that they not only have the leading technology in digital cinema distribution today but are focused on the future and supporting companies like Global Vision and Hoyts. I am pleased to welcome Hoyts and Global Vision to our growing roster of digital cinema clients around the world. This first digital cinema project in the Asia Pacific Region for IDC is a continuation of our expansion in this market. With our established base in the US and recently announced contracts for new networks in Europe IDC's digital cinema distribution technology is quickly gaining recognition as the global market leader and is poised to become the de facto standard for the distribution of digital content to theatres says Ron Clifton IDC president and CEO.
