Just learned that we will deal directly with two film companies on vpf. I hope the rest will do the same. Cuemarks

Paramount is one. Which studio is the other? Disney? Fox?

From what I've learned Universal is also dealing direct as long as half your screens are digital-Fox is leaning that way but I haven't heard specifics.

Sony indicates they are leaning that way. Other studios are still working on vpf policies for us. None have mentioned the 50 percent rule on vpf to us. We have run into the 50 percent policy which dictates we have to run a film print rather than a digital copy. cuemarks

can you run through a scenario for me of a studio paying vpfs? I'm confused. Do you buy the equipment outright and then get these payments back to defray the costs?

Looks like to me on an outright purchase the film company pays vpf via lower percentage rates. Another possible way is for a dealer to install the digital equipment and collect vpf from the studio until the equipment is payed for. I don't know what happened to the third party concept, but I much rather deal with the studios directly or a dealer I trust. I know these are not new ideas
but I think they seem fair and logical. cuemarks
