Digital Cinema successfully demonstrated using the Cast4All multicasting platform

Cast4All, a Belgian company specialising in developing, managing and marketing digital networks for rich-content delivery has successfully demonstrated the fully reliable and automated distribution of very large files for digital cinema, based on its multicast management platform.

Recently 'Nicolas', a digital feature film by Pete Shaner, was successfully transmitted to two different EVS CineStore servers. The transmission of a full motion picture containing more than 60 Gbytes, used a dedicated Forward Error Correcting (FEC) scheme which was developed by Cast4All.

The system was developed with the support of the ESA Telecom. During the presentation at Barco, both Barco Digital Cinema and EVS Digital Cinema presented their offerings and views on the future of digital cinema. Cast4All presented the distribution system, and demonstrated the provisioning of content deliveries via satellite through its Internet portal.
