NAB, SMPTE, ETC to present fourth annual Digital Cinema Summit

The National Association of Broadcasters will present its Digital Cinema Summit April 16-21 at the NAB Convention in Las Vegas with the help of the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) and the Entertainment Technology Center at USC (ETC-USC).

The fourth annual summit will present speakers, panels and new product announcements. The Digital Cinema Intiative (DCI) specifications will be the thrust of the summit April 16-17. Topics will also include: the issues faced in implementing the specifications through SMPTE standards and the impact of digital cinema on entertainment, technology and theatrical exhibition worldwide.

SMPTE’s work to standardize the digital cinema specifications will provide the data manufacturers need to build global, interoperable equipment and will give users the requirements to calibrate it.

The Digital Cinema Summit will present an executive overview of the DCI specification and examine the color encoding, security, compression and packaging components of the proposed standard. There will be sessions introducing next-generation digital cameras, servers and projectors, and examining how this equipment will be integrated into the filmmaking process.

Panels will also look at digital cinema research in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region and at how digital cinema will be implemented in the theatre circuits worldwide.

Among the summit’s highlights will be a roundtable of six Hollywood studio chief technology officers and executives discussing how digital cinema is changing the way their companies create content and do business.
