Deluxe and Unique Digital extend partnership in Spain
Deluxe Entertainment Services Group Inc. (Deluxe) has announced a four-year agreement between its digital cinema group and . The agreement appoints Unique Digital, leading supplier of software and electronic delivery services to the Exhibitor Industry, as Deluxe’s preferred partner for theatrical electronic content delivery in Spain, an extension of an existing relationship between the two companies that to date covers ten territories across Europe.
Unique Digital will replicate its managed in-territory electronic distribution to Deluxe’s studio clients in the Spanish market, with Deluxe using its local HDD operation and service support teams to lead and handle all content relationships as part of a managed distribution service. Hosted data centre services and secured dedicated connectivity will be provided by Vodafone, which is also responsible for aggregating connectivity options to provide the best and fastest delivery options for the service.
The extension of the partnership between Deluxe and Unique Digital ensures a viable, long-term alternative for electronic content delivery across the region. Furthermore, working with Vodafone allows Deluxe’s theatrical distribution managed service to be more easily scaled in both reach and capability.
Phil Morris, Chief Operating Officer for Unique Digital, commented: “Moving into another major European territory with Deluxe reflects the strength of the collaboration between the companies, and the success of our combined content services. The quality of the network in Spain will allow us to provision a very fast and future proofed solution.”
Ramon Martos, Managing Director of Deluxe Spain, said: “Unique Digital have been longstanding partners of Deluxe and we are delighted to extend this working relationship into a new territory. Spain is the eleventh territory in which we will now work together. The addition of Vodafone’s best available bandwidth network capability brings a very compelling proposition to our customers, with a fast, flexible delivery solution that is unique in the Spanish market.”
