KIT digital Content Solutions, a service and solution provider for the digital content value chain, has signed a deal with local partner, Actccent in Singapore, enabling DCP duplication and distribution throughout south east Asia.

The deal will allow KIT to provide global content owners with the best local servicing and logistics solutions throughout their region.

KIT will be offering DCP duplication and physical distribution across all of South East Asia from its facility in Singapore, through electronic delivery of content onto its servers.

Alan Christensen, director, Digital Cinema, KIT digital Content Solutions, said: “We are very pleased to be able to offer services and logistics across south east Asia. This deal spreads KIT digital Content Solutions’ footprint into another key region where our involvement will improve the standards of digital cinema solutions in line with industry expectations.

"With future distribution methods currently far from adequate in this region, we really wanted to offer this service as a strong interim solution to reduce costs and drive efficiency. We selected Actccent as our partner based on their wealth of knowledge and experience in handling distribution across South East Asia. With operations in various neighboring territories, they bring extreme value to the current and future distribution chain.”

Mark Wettasinghe, founder and chief catalyst officer at Actccent, added: “I am delighted to be a partner of KIT digital Content Solutions for this service. This partnership brings forth breakthrough offerings to global content owners, digital platform operators and studios. To these clients, we will be able to offer newer and more efficient services that were not possible before.

"These are exciting times; we are starting production and further ramping up with some major releases already scheduled. Coupled with our expertise and knowledge honed from years of leadership in the manufacturing and logistics industry, we will grow a solid operation. We look forward to meeting with other global content distributors on their up-and-coming visits to our site.”
