Leveraging Telstra’s next-generation 5G cellular technology, Cinema Direct presents a professional-grade wireless content delivery solution suitable for any distributor and cinema in Australia.

Cinema Direct has many advantages for the market as it works on 5G for most metropolitan cinemas and 4G in rural areas. Not only is it cost effective, but it provides a resilient and secure network that we control end-to-end. Where Silver Trak is expert and takes care of media management, Telstra provides master control, managed planning and assurance. First line support is then provided by Telstra Broadcast Services main control facilities and second line support by Telstra Network Operations. Additionally, all content provided by Cinema Direct is contained within a secure network, separate from all other traffic and only available to Silver Trak Digital customers, making it highly secure.

Cinema Direct represents a true sea change in the digital content delivery landscape. The high level of security combined with its reach and the size and reach of Telstra’s infrastructure and support takes it to another level.

Christiansen added, “Cinema Direct has been developed without installation or maintenance for all users, especially cinemas and content distributors. Additionally, over time, the Cinema Direct ecosystem will grow in ways that create and enable additional revenue streams for cinemas through the availability of rich media services. This means that live sporting events, concerts and other exclusive content can be streamed in super high quality to any venue connected to Cinema Direct live in real time, anytime, with just a click of a button. a button.

As Christiansen explained, the fact that Cinema Direct offers distributors who want a more cost-effective and cost-effective way to get their content delivered to theaters is just one of the main benefits of the new 5G solution.

Cinema Direct’s ‘live’ content capabilities will allow new and expanded audiences to see a whole range of content on the big screen – content they would never have had access to before, especially in a cinema.

Andreas Eriksson, Head of Streaming Services at Telstra, added: “Streaming content over Telstra’s 5G network is obviously a huge benefit of Cinema Direct streaming. We are also excited to entertain, by providing appropriate viewing rights, to potentially thousands of Australians who would not be able to access, for example, a sold-out concert or sporting event. With Cinema Direct, cinemas will now have the ability to offer these events and other content across Australia live or delayed.”
