Live-Streaming in Movie Theaters Moving Forward via DCDC

The Digital Cinema Distribution Coalition — founded by Warner Bros., Universal Pictures, Regal Entertainment Group, Cinemark Theatres and AMC Theatres — has developed what it’s touting as a high-quality live-streaming technology solution.

The new system, which will be unveiled at CinemaCon at Caesars Palace this week, allows the DCDC KenCast catch server to stream live content into an unlimited number of auditoriums from two simultaneous event feeds along with two additional pre-recorded events. That means exhibitors can book up to four events simultaneously to an unlimited number of auditoriums.

“Never in the history of the film industry have content provider/distributors and exhibitors come together like they have with DCDC, which serves as a uniting force marrying a pioneering economic model and advanced technology to benefit all within the cinematic community,” said DCDC CEO Randy Blotky.

Launched in October 2013, DCDC has grown quickly from 17,000 screens at more than 1,200 North American theater sites to over 24,000 screens at more than 2,000 sites under its contract.
