Under the VPF agreements between Cinedigm and the distributors, the deadline for exhibitors to sign deals and install digital cinema equipment comes six short months from now, on September 30, 2012. The deadline under some other VPF programs have already passed, or come very soon. And as we have indicated previously, we believe that film prints may not be available in the U.S. or Canada beyond the end of 2013, and perhaps even earlier than that.
The CBG and NATO have dedicated significant time and resources to create the digital cinema program with Cinedigm. CBG exhibitors operating more than 2500 screens have signed deals with Cinedigm. If you are one of those exhibitors, congratulations. If you have not signed with Cinedigm, you may still intend to, or you may intend to sign with another VPF integrator, or convert to digital cinema without a VPF program. That choice is yours. We simply want to do what we can to assist you in the transition.
