The last few years have been a complicated time in entertainment. As yesterday’s future formats become the formats of today, content assets and packages have also ballooned in size, carrying a freight of versions, languages and metadata and placing a strain on distribution pipelines and networked infrastructure.
In 2018, to support our ever-present goal of making delivery simple, Deluxe lifted the burden on the distribution pipeline by implementing high speed, high capacity dark fiber networks in Los Angeles and London, bringing clients:
- Consistently fast speeds and capacity
- Enhanced network control
- The ability to scale with ease
- The highest level of data and content security
- Improved resiliency and reduced risk
- Support for new cloud-based architecture in Deluxe One
To store larger volumes of content, we’ve introduced higher-performance storage capabilities, allowing delivery teams the ability to accept additional workloads, scale UHD workflows, and operate with ease.
Deluxe has also extended this ease-of-use to our world-renowned Digital Cinema operations.
Our global theatrical delivery is unmatched. Each year, we issue over 80 million keys and master upwards of 43,000 titles. As the world embraces more entertainment, we’re here to provide more value and ease to our clients through innovative developments to our systems and infrastructure. Over the last year, we’ve:
- Launched an order management system to better support global workshare
- Implemented geo-separated Disaster Recovery capabilities for key digital cinema systems and enhanced Studio and Theatre Portals
- Launched the Content & Key Manager platform in North America, now adopted by 90% of the market’s exhibitors. And we look forward to launching internationally in 2019
