Microspace Communications Corporation, the leading distributor of digital cinema via satellite, delivered Paramount Pictures’ release of DreamWorks Pictures’ Disturbia to ShoWest, the most prestigious and longest-running convention and tradeshow exclusively for the cinema exhibition and distribution community. This exclusive pre-release screening represented the first time a motion picture was delivered via satellite to ShoWest.

Microspace delivered Disturbia via an Intelsat satellite to ShoWest, where it was received by equipment from Dolby Laboratories. The core of the Dolby® Digital Cinema system consists of the Dolby Show Store and Dolby Show Player, which together provide everything needed to load, store, decode, and deliver pristine digital movies to digital cinema projectors. The accompanying Dolby Show Manager software application provides complete operational control and enables users to perform advanced scheduling either locally or remotely.

Microspace collaborates with studios, content preparation companies and exhibitors to utilize satellite distribution and its benefits. The proven workflow and electronic delivery of Microspace’s satellite distribution provides the industry with a turn-key solution for content delivery and minimizes the potential issues and costs associated with physical delivery. Through the use of two discrete satellite systems, movies and keys are delivered on-time, every-time at Microspace connected theatres.

Microspace Communications Corporation (Microspace), a subsidiary of Capitol Broadcasting Company, is the leader in satellite services for digital cinema, business communications and digital signage. The company operates the largest global business satellite broadcasting network with nearly 340,000 remote links worldwide.
