New York, NY -- Screenvision, the leading innovator in cinema advertising, has announced that Revlon has signed on as the presenting sponsor for the upcoming cinematic release of the New York Philharmonic production of Company. The Tony Award-winning musical by Stephen Sondheim was recorded live last month at Lincoln Center's famed Avery Fisher Hall in New York City, and will be released by Screenvision for a limited engagement in hundreds of digital cinema theatres nationwide beginning on June 15.

The deal further demonstrates Screenvision's ability to help marketers connect their brands to high-profile in-cinema events.

The highly-buzzed-about revival of Company features an all-star cast of television and stage heavyweights. Headlining the production is (in alphabetical order): Craig Bierko, Stephen Colbert, Jon Cryer, Katie Finneran, Neil Patrick Harris, Christina Hendricks, Aaron Lazar, Patti LuPone, Jill Paice, Martha Plimpton, Anika Noni Rose, Jennifer Laura Thompson, Jim Walton and Chryssie Whitehead. Sondheim specialist Paul Gemignani conducts the New York Philharmonic with Jonathan Tunick's original orchestrations. Lonny Price is the director; Josh Rhodes is the choreographer; Lonny Price and Matt Cowart are the producers and Ellen M. Krass is the executive producer.

As the presenting sponsor, Revlon -- one of the strongest consumer brand franchises in the world -- will receive premium on-screen advertising before every presentation of Company, which is booked into approximately 500 theatres across the country. In addition, Revlon will have a prominent presence at the Company star-studded, red carpet premiere taking place June 8 in New York City.

"Having a prestigious sponsor for the cinematic release of Company further validates alternative programming as a highly effective marketing tool," said Darryl Schaffer, Executive Vice President, Operations and Exhibitor Relations for Screenvision. "Screenvision is committed to bringing a wide range of alternative programming to its theatres nationwide and we're thrilled that Revlon recognizes the value that these events have in reaching targeted audiences."

Company will screen in over 50 markets that not only include New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Boston, but also smaller cities, including St. Louis and Milwaukee, to give as wide an audience as possible an affordable Broadway experience. Tickets, showtimes and locations are now available at: Tickets will be available for $18 each - a mere fraction of the cost of a Broadway production of this caliber.

SHOWCANADA, Ottawa -- GDC Technology ("GDC"), a world leading digital cinema solution provider, is pleased to announce today the signing of a repeat digital cinema server contract with Cinemas Guzzo, Canada's largest independent theatre chain. Having already installed GDC servers in March 2010, the new contract will see an additional 62 servers deployed over the coming months, with full deployment of 135 servers scheduled to be completed by June 2012.

Today, Cinemas Guzzo serves as Quebec's leading independent movie chain, boasting 148 screens in 11 theatre complexes. With 54% of its screens already converted for digital projection, the family owned chain is well on the way toward achieving its goal of total digitization by 2012. Under the current contract, Cinedigm Digital Cinema Corp. (NASDAQ: CIDM), the global leader in digital cinema conversion programs, will supply Cinedigm-CertifiedTM screens, structure the underlying VPF agreement, as well as assume responsibility for the entire administration of the VPF implementation. Together Cinedigm and GDC's collaboration will increase Cinemas Guzzo's digital entertainment options, and ensure a smooth and efficient transition to digital with the highest quality digital cinema products and service.

Cinemas Guzzo has been entertaining moviegoers for more than four decades. The company's longstanding passion for cinematic innovation has made digitization a key priority. To this end, GDC was selected for Cinemas Guzzo's initial stage of digital conversion in March 2010. GDC's solutions proved a great choice for Cinemas Guzzo, whose audiences now enjoy the finest imagery in digital cinema.

"We could not be happier with GDC and the progress of our digital conversion," said Vincenzo Guzzo, executive vice president of Cinemas Guzzo. "We are impressed with GDC's feature rich servers, and relieved that such advanced technology can be operated so easily; what's more, if we require any assistance, GDC's technical support team is always responsive. The upgrade to digital opens many doors for us, but above all, our customers are clearly pleased with high quality imagery. To complete our digital conversion, GDC was again, the obvious choice."

"We were always confident in GDC's ability to deliver for Cinemas Guzzo, but winning a repeat order is still extremely rewarding for us, "said Dr. Man-Nang Chong, founder and CEO of GDC Technology. "It reinforces not only Cinemas Guzzo's high approval of GDC and our cutting edge solutions, but also demonstrates our commitment to the digital cinema industry and its patrons. We're delighted to reaffirm Cinemas Guzzo's importance to us as a continuing loyal partner in GDC's ever growing customer base."
