"Thomson, through its Technicolor Digital Cinema business, and the Infocomm Development Authority (IDA) of Singapore today announced a partnership to establish a digital cinema hub and network operations center (NOC) in Singapore.

Thomson, with the support of the IDA, plans to construct an efficient and secure digital cinema hub and NOC in Singapore to offer digital cinema service and related management solution capabilities to the motion picture industry for the Singaporean territory and other Asia-Pacific regions.

Thomson’s Singapore facility is expected to have the capability to support the following digital cinema services: physical and electronic forms of content delivery; Thomson’s key distribution and management systems; equipment monitoring; and 24/7/365 multi-lingual call-center support, fully integrated with its premier operations in the U.S.

The build-out of the new digital cinema hub and NOC in Singapore is slated to begin in mid-2008."
