Recently, Tamil Film Producers Council signed a deal with a new Digital Service Provider, AEROX, and also added that they would sign up new deals with many other DSPs in the coming days. As a result, Vishal & co. have signed up another deal, this time with a new service provider called, ‘Microplex’.
Microplex serves quality projection with DCI, 2K, 4K technologies, and they can also do the mastering of all films, with the highest quality. With this technology, the mastering can be done in Producers Council office, and the content can be directly delivered to the theatre owners.
It is said that they have closed the deal for less than 50% VPF from existing rates in the market which seems to be a very good news for the industry but will all the theatre owners accept this offer is unknown. Hope TFPC and exhibitors come to terms and call off the strike soon.
It must be noted that TFPC initiated the strike to cut down the cost paid for a Digital Service provider called Qube.
