PORT ORANGE, Fla., Feb. 2, 2015 — #thinspace Technology Inc. (OTCQB: THNS; “Thinspace or the “Company”), a global provider of reliable, scalable and affordable application delivery, virtualization, and cloud client technology to public and private sector companies and organizations of all sizes, today announced that #pvr Cinemas, the largest and the most premium film and retail entertainment company in India, has chosen Thinspace TSE for cost-efficient application delivery over the competition.
Since its inception in 1997, PVR has redefined the way entertainment is consumed in India – operating a cinema circuit comprising of 454 screens in 102 properties located in 43 cities across India. The subsidiaries range from the largest bowling chain in India ‘PVR bluO’ to the two casual dining restaurants ‘Mistral’ and ‘Mr Hong’ under PVR Leisure. The group under the arm of PVR Pictures is into film distribution of non-studio and independent international films in India. The company is also known for cultivating and spreading international movie culture countrywide and supports independent filmmakers under the banner of ‘Directors Rare’.
PVR acquired its Cinemax properties in 2012 and currently serves 60 million patrons at PAN India level. From Gold Class and Mainstream Cinemas to Director’s Cut, PVR has made exceptional technology like the IMAX® and the ECX (Enhanced Cinema Experience) accessible to its audience.

Prior to upgrading to Thinspace TSE, PVR has been using a version of Citrix that was outdated and too costly for its growing user base. Moreover, some applications required different server OS for different type of apps and not all platforms were supported with that version.
The IT team found Thinspace TSE to be a cost effective alternative to Citrix to deliver Microsoft Navision ERP application delivery to its distributed user base. TSE displayed similar functionality as Citrix with the support of latest Windows server OS at a fraction of the cost. PVR also appreciated Thinspace’s dedicated customer support and easy-to-use web-based management console which is simpler to manage than Citrix.
Chris Bautista, Chief Executive Officer of Thinspace, commented, “PVR is one of our fastest deployments. We had more than 100+ users switched from Citrix to Thinspace within a day. The simplicity of the solution enabled PVR to see a direct value in our product. PVR also appreciated our dedicated customer support and web-based management console which is easier to manage than our competition.”
