Distribution specialist SmartJog continues on track toward DCinema distribution domination at several points in the chain. This week they announce an extension of current agreements with Deluxe Digital to pipe DCPs (Digital Cinema Packages) from Deluxe to any of their connected 200 cinemas (850+ screens) throughout the EU.
SmartJog was already used by Deluxe for transfers and storage of materials between their 11 offices around the world; Rome, Barcelona, Los Angeles, New York, Toronto, and London are mentioned in the press release. SmartJog is also used by post-production facilities world-wide, many who would doubtless send product to Deluxe for final packaging and distribution.
Back in March, Sperling Reich at Celluloid Junkie asked, “Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed that SmartJog has been on a roll lately when it comes to partnerships?” He pointed out then that SmartJog had recently nailed down deals with Fox, XDC and Ymagis.
Rack up another one for SmartJog and for Sperling. We’ll go on a limb here: Will Deluxe interest SmartJog in the MediaRecall technology that they bought this spring?
