Sixth annual summit to focus on digital cinema at NAB2007

Keynotes, case studies and panel discussions focused on real-world successes and the remaining challenges of digital cinema will be the highlights of the Digital Cinema Summit at NAB2007.

The rollout of digital cinema has raised a number of technical, creative and business issues. The Digital Cinema Summit will focus on those issues across the entire digital motion picture release chain from production and post production, through theatrical exhibition, to multiplatform, digital release.

Jointly produced by NAB, the Entertainment Technology Center at the University of Southern California (ETC@USC) and the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE), the Digital Cinema Summit will be held April 14-15 in conjunction with NAB2007 in Las Vegas.

Organized by SMPTE, the program April 14 will focus on the latest in stereoscopic (digital 3-D) cinema techniques; technologies for creating digital intermediates (DIs); new workflows in the digital theater; the DC-28 standards; and a final report from the international digital cinema deployment organization, World Screen. Chris Cookson, chief technology officer for Warner Bros. Entertainment, will deliver a keynote address that explores what the industry can do to prepare for the long-term promise of digital cinema image quality.

Produced by ETC@USC, the program April 15 will look at creating and distributing digital motion picture content for viewing in the movie theater and the new digital home.
