What is Digital Cinema?

Digital Cinema is essentially the end objective of the cinematic evolution from 35mm film to digital media for cinema presentations. The reasons for this transition include reducing 35mm print costs, environmental concerns and eliminating dirty and scratched film prints. Movies will now be delivered on reusable hard drives and loaded into servers.

Over the past 2 years, both the entertainment and cinema industries have determined that "2k" or better resolution projectors will be the accepted resolution for the 35mm Film to Digital Cinema evolution. 2k resolution also offers consistently better light and a more stable picture when compared to normal theatrical exhibition.

Globally there are about 1200 screens that are digital cinema and the number is growing every day.
