XDC has sold Arqiva’s digital cinema satellite distribution system to five cinema chains operating in Austria Portugal and Malta. Each site will be fitted with Arqiva’s digital satellite receiver to receive Digital Cinema Packages (feature films trailers and advertising) as well as live events distributed via Arqiva’s IS905 platform. 

 Barrie Woolston commercial director at Arqiva Satellite & Media says “Following a re-seller agreement signed last May XDC has secured deals which significantly reinforce Arqiva’s digital cinema satellite distribution system as Europe’s electronic delivery platform of choice. Our combination of tried and trusted professional equipment with established satellite infrastructure and expertise makes it an extremely strong proposition which XDC has fully exploited in securing these deals. They once again highlight the growing confidence of distributors and exhibitors in satellite based electronic distribution of cinema content and further underline the technical excellence and commercial viability of Arqiva’s solution.”
