Deluxe Digital Chooses Hughes Europe To Deliver Managed Connectivity Services To 3,000 Cinemas Across Europe

GERMANTOWN, Md., July 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Hughes Network Systems, LLC (HUGHES), the world's leading provider of broadband satellite networks and managed services, announced today that Deluxe Digital (Deluxe) has selected its subsidiary Hughes Europe to provide managed high-bandwidth connectivity services, as the leading digital cinema solutions provider looks to transform film distribution throughout Europe. This will enable Deluxe to move from physical hard-disk delivery of films to cloud-based digital content delivery, which is more scalable and cost-effective.

As part of the multi-year agreement, Hughes will partner with Deluxe Digital Cinema to distribute the latest feature films to over 3,000 cinemas in the UK, Germany, France, Italy and Spain during the initial phase, with a further goal of expanding to a potential of 8,600 cinemas more broadly across Europe within five years.

Deluxe selected Hughes because of its unique flexibility in working with multiple in-country network providers, together with the ability to provide a range of broadband technologies including fiber, cable, DSL and satellite to ensure the best supplier/connectivity option for each individual cinema site.

Peter Wright, managing director, Deluxe Digital Cinema EMEA, said, "As a global leader in digital cinema services, Deluxe is always working to identify the next-generation solutions that can deliver improved security, efficiency and faster time to market. Leveraging Hughes Europe's network flexibility will help us to provide more efficient and effective film delivery to cinema sites of all sizes across Europe. This will enable us to meet our goal of always increasing service levels to our film distributor clients, ensuring they always get on screen, on time."  

"Hughes is proud to have been chosen for this significant new service," said Chris O'Dell, vice president, sales and marketing, Hughes Europe. "Hughes was the only provider able to offer the high-performance service levels Deluxe needed to deliver the minimum required 20 Mbps download speeds across all locations, offering Deluxe a 'one-stop shop' service with 100 percent coverage."

Although each site has its own connectivity solution with a different mix of suppliers and technologies, Hughes common managed services support layer provides the same high-level service level agreement (SLA) across every country and every cinema.
