Cinedigm Digital Cinema, National Geographic Entertainment and YouTube Encourage Fans to Submit Hipstamatic App Photos for Inclusion in "Life in a Day" Theatrical Screenings

Winners in First Ever Theatrical Hipstamatic App Promotion to Have Photos Showcased on National Geographic Website and on Theatre Screens Across the Country

WOODLAND HILLS, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 06/30/11 -- Cinedigm Digital Cinema (NASDAQ: CIDM) -- Fans of the upcoming user-generated feature documentary "Life in a Day" are being offered a chance to see their photos on the big screen via the largest theatrical promotion yet by Hipstamatic. Named App of the Year by Apple, Hipstamatic is a popular iPhone and iPod touch application that converts the device into a retro plastic camera. Information on the "Life in a Day" promotion can be found at http://community.hipstamatic.com/contests/52.

For the "Life in a Day" program, Hipstamatic App users are asked to submit photos of their own personal "Life in a Day." The top 20 photos, as chosen by National Geographic photo editors, will be featured on movie theatre screens around the country, the National Geographic photography homepage, and the www.YouTube.com/lifeinaday channel. During premiere screenings on July 24, fans will also be encouraged to VOTE for their favorite Hipstamatic photo by texting in their votes. The top three vote-getters will be awarded additional prizes and special placement on the National Geography photography home page. The promotion runs June 28 through July 8 and culminates with the July 24 theatrical screenings. Following the special premiere screenings on July 24, the film will open in select theatres July 29.

"This promotion ties in perfectly with the user-generated nature of 'Life in a Day' and we're thrilled to offer this extraordinary opportunity to photographers around the world," said Jill Newhouse Calcaterra, chief marketing officer of distributor Cinedigm. "To have your work on big screens across the US is every amateur photographer's dream come true."

"This is the largest number of submissions we have ever received in a 24-hour period," said Mario Estrada, Hipstamatic Community Director and VP of Partnerships. "This kind of exposure doesn't come often, especially for the 20 awesome images that will be given a well deserved spot in the limelight. In short, I'm jealous I can't win!"

The Hipstamatic partnership follows two previously announced user-generated opportunities afforded to "Life in a Day" fans, including fan-requested hometown screenings and fan-created mash-up film trailers to be shown at the special screenings and distributed on YouTube. All fan-based "Life in a Day" activities can be found at www.youtube.com/lifeinaday.

"Life in a Day" is directed by Oscar®-winner Kevin Macdonald ("The Last King of Scotland," "One Day in September") and executive produced by Oscar®-winner Ridley Scott ("Gladiator," "Blade Runner"). They invited the global YouTube community to capture a single day of their lives on camera, and received more than 4,500 hours of footage from 192 countries. The resulting 90-minute film is a deeply personal, powerful journey that takes audiences around the world from Australia to Zambia, from the heart of bustling major cities to the most remote reaches of the earth.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality.

Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs.

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity.

We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
