Unique Digital has expanded its Movie Transit Network to include the cinemas of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. Directed from Unique Digital’s local office in Vilnius, Unique Digital has deployed the Movie Transit network for feature film delivery in all three Baltic countries in a rollout conducted in less than two months.

“With a fantastic broadband infrastructure, the Baltic States represent great potential for electronic feature film delivery. It has been a joy working so productively with our clients in the Baltics on this project, and to see the market recognise and embrace this potential,” said Eyvind Ljungquist, Nordic sales director at Unique Digital. “After completing Movie Transit rollouts across Scandinavia, the UK and Ireland, we are delighted to be able to provide our range of products into the Baltic Nations as well.”

“We believe local presence is key to providing the support the cinemas and distributors need. From our base in Vilnius, we are able to support the business operations in Lithuanian, Estonian and Russian languages, ensuring all customers can communicate with us easily and effectively. Our local presence also allows us to react swiftly to any situation requiring hands-on or physical remediation,” Vytautas Saikalis, director of Unique Digital Lithuania said. “For many years we’ve provided software solutions for cinema businesses worldwide from our Vilnius facility. I’m really excited to be able to expand our Lithuanian Operation to include serving our local and neighbouring cinema markets”.

With the addition of the Baltic Nation States, Unique Digital has increased its world leading Movie Transit network to encompass a total of nine countries and 1,800 cinemas.

According to Unique, Movie Transit, developed in 2012, was the first network in the world to offer nationwide distribution of theatrical feature films via landline broadband, and remains the largest network of its kind.
