Simon Tandy, Director
Live cinema advocate & Founder of LANsat; cinema industry recognised delivery system for film distribution and live broadcasts
Simon has worked in the industry for more than 20 years primarily with a cinema and technology background. In 2009, he set up a company which, amongst other digital cinema products, created LANsat - now installed throughout the UK and Ireland. Simon is both an advocate for the event cinema sector and is proud to support content owners and exhibitors in delivering broadcasts worldwide. Though Simon facilitates broadcasts on a global scale, he operates on a local level, too, providing advice at individual cinema sites for such things as access to live events and their associated technologies as well as the management of distributors' unique broadcast events.
Noteworthy projects that Simon has worded on include the broadcast of Disney's Frankenweenie, a red carpet premiere live from the Odeon Leicester Square which opened the London Film Festival in 2012; the European satellite distribution of Universal's Billy Elliot musical live from the West End in 2015; and the IP streaming of the World E-League Gaming Finals live from Atlanta in 2016.
