MUMBAI: XDC will be the official digital cinema partner for the upcoming Cannes Film Festival.
As the official partner, XDC will provide the necessary equipment and technical support for more than 16 auditoria using digital screening including the parallel sections during the May competition, says a release.
“Producers, filmmakers and distributors are now convinced of the advantages to screen their movie digitally, and we can expect to receive additional films which will be prepared at the XDC Digital Content Lab,” says XDC International general manager Bernard Collard.
“Last year, XDC collaborated with the French CST to operate the digital cinema equipment for all the digital movies presented during the Festival. This year, XDC assures that the Festival will be efficiently deployed by the most advanced digital cinema technologies, such as JPEG2000 compression format and 3D projections,” adds XDC France general manager Alain Remond.
