YMAGIS (ISIN : FR0011471291, mnémo : MAGIS), the specialist in digital technologies for the cinema industry, announces the signature of an agreement with one of the top three major US production studios for the delivery of all its cinema content across Europe.

After the creation of SmartJog Ymagis Logistics, a joint company with SmartJog (TdF Group), in December 2013, the purchase of the Arqiva’s content delivery network in April 2014 and, finally, the acquisition of dcinex, completed in October 2014, YMAGIS established the leading European delivery network for digital cinema content.

The non-exclusive agreement stipulates that YMAGIS will provide a complete delivery service for its movies and trailers, through the Group’s network, covering more than 3.200 cinema sites in France, Italy, Germany, Spain, United Kingdom and in more than 10 other European countries.

The agreement covers DCP (1) delivery as well as KDM (2) generation and delivery to the cinema screens via satellite, terrestrial (ADSL/fiber) or physical means; therefore allowing for delivery cost optimization.

On this occasion, Jean Mizrahi, President and co-founder of YMAGIS commented: ”We are very proud that this Major studio shows its trust in us by giving us the opportunity to deliver all of its content in Europe. After having accompanied the American studios during their financing of the digital conversion of European cinema screens, we wished to maintain the close relationship by offering them new value-added services. Today, the delivery network we built in Europe enables us to offer optimized logistics solutions for the delivery of their content to the cinemas.”

Jean Mizrahi added: “I am convinced that this contract paves the way for other commercial partnerships with the largest European and world’s leading players in the cinema industry.”
