How far has digital conversion progressed? Today’s session will provide some answers

Free cinema update session Conference Today

Each year IBC is proud to host an open meeting of the European Digital Cinema Forum, which gives everyone a chance to debate the latest developments in the technology and business of D-Cinema. Very much a complement to the other sessions at IBC, this session provides an excellent

wrap-up of the nuts and bolts of today’s D-Cinema operations. How far has digital conversion progressed, and is the process complete? What are the issues for archives in a world where film is fast disappearing from shooting, post and distribution? What are the projector and server manufacturers working on, and how will this impact the industry? Is KDM delivering on

its promise of simple security? These are just some of the questions the session will debate.

An obvious hot topic of the moment is high frame rate movies. Are we nearing a standard? What about the data rates for HFR? Are we close to resolving the 3D brightness issue, and does HFR make it better or worse?

Experts in their fields will set

out the case and spark debate. Peter Lude, chairman of the Laser Illumination Projection Association (LIPA) will look at the regulatory issues as well as the technology for the next generation of projectors, and cinematographer Kommer Kleijn of Imago will explain why creative artists need HFR. David Hancock of IHS Screen Digest will provide an update on the worldwide D-Cinema

business, and Peter Wilson will outline the current issues in mastering movies. François Helt and Hans-Nikolas Locher will talk about ain initiative in France to develop an exchange format for digitised film.

Whatever your involvement with cinema there is sure to be much in this session for you. All IBC visitors are invited to attend this free session, which starts at 10:00 in room E102.

agreement on the next generation standard for digital terrestrial television. Dare we even hope that such a universal platform is a practicality, given our industry’s tendency to develop regional standards? Today FOBTV is hosting a special conference session to explain how it plans to achieve the impossible.

Under the chairmanship of Phil Laven, the panel includes representatives from China and Korea as well as Europe. It promises to be a fascinating debate and potentially critical for the future of our industry. All IBC attendees are welcome to attend this free session, which starts at 10:00 this morning in the Forum.
