Global Digital Cinema Screen Market 2015-2019
About Digital Cinema
Digital cinema is the usage of digital technology to distribute or project motion pictures instead of using motion picture film. As a result of the existence of digital content in the form of bits, a movie can be distributed using hard drives, through dedicated satellite links, through the Internet, or optical disks such as Blu-ray discs. Digital projectors are used instead of conventional film projectors to project digital movies. Digital cinemas are different from high-definition television and do not depend on the usage of television or aspect ratios, high-definition video standards, or frame rates. The resolution in digital cinema is represented by the horizontal pixel count; for 2K it is 2048 × 1080 or 2.2 megapixels and for 4K it is 4096×2160 or 8.8 megapixels. Typically, digital cinema is electronically distributed to cinemas through media such as the internet, fiber optics networks, and hard disks. There are different types of digital cinema available, such as 2D digital cinema, 3D cinema, and e-cinema.
