Cinecolombia Turns to International Datacasting for Digital Cinema Solutions

Company brings leading digital cinema technology to Latin America’s
expanding digital cinema market.

Ottawa, ON – As a global market leader in digital cinema technology, International Datacasting Corporation (TSX: IDC) is pleased to announce that Cinecolombia, one of the region’s leading movie theatre chains, has selected IDC’s digital cinema distribution technology. IDC’s Latin American digital cinema partner, Grupo ChileFilms and their affiliate, Cinecolor Colombia, managed the sale to Cinecolombia.

This installation of SuperFlex Pro Cinema Cache Servers further strengthens IDC’s growing presence in the Latin American market. At present, about 70% of the cinemas employing electronic delivery solutions use IDC’s technology to transmit the latest blockbuster films and live 2D and 3D events via satellite. Today these solutions are deployed at over 4,000 sites on six continents.

“With IDC, we have great confidence that we can provide Cinecolombia’s movie theatres with exceptional value by offering outstanding technology that is already in use worldwide by leading digital cinema networks,” said Carlos Acero, General Manager of Cinecolor Colombia.

Cinecolor Colombia is a part of IDC’s partner Grupo Chilefilms, which operates extensive digital cinema networks throughout Latin America. ChileFilms owns and operates the CinecolorSAT digital cinema satellite distribution network, which not only delivers motion pictures, trailers and advertising, but live and alternative content as well. ChileFilms live content offerings including major sports events delivered to cinemas across Colombia, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina and Chile.

“IDC’s proven track record as the supplier of choice for digital cinema content distributors worldwide really sets the stage for us in Latin America,” said Alexandra Villamizar, Technical Manager at Cinecolombia. “With IDC, we get the same extraordinary technology here in Colombia that powers 70% of electronic content distribution to cinemas worldwide.”

“As Latin American countries, like Colombia, transition to digital distribution of cinema content and live events, IDC is focused on bringing leading-edge solutions to this market, which have garnered such a high level of confidence from our customers elsewhere in the world,” said Doug Lowther, President and CEO of IDC.
