               DigiCine Overview

The process of distributing and exhibiting a motion picture has changed little, in its essence, since the Lumière brothers presented the first motion picture to an audience in 1895. Using a negative, positive 35mm film prints are exposed and developed, and then shipped to theatres, where the images are projected onto the screen. This analog photochemical process is capable of producing screen images of great beauty and expressive power, but in practice the moviegoer’s experience is too often degraded by the wear and tear of the mechanical process, which can result in worn, scratched, and dirty prints. The process of manufacturing and shipping prints is also costly; the film industry globally spends more than $1B annually. Recently the industry’s attention has turned to digital technology and its potential application to distribution and exhibition, because distributing digital files would theoretically yield great benefits in terms of image clarity and quality, lower cost, greater security, and more flexibility in the cinema.

Digital cinema describes the packaging, distribution, and exhibition of motion pictures in digital form. This term does not specify how those motion pictures are originated, produced, and finished. For the foreseeable future, movies will be shot using mostly film but also digital cameras, edited using a variety of digital (and rarely, analog) devices, and post-produced in a variety of ways—depending on issues of capability, flexibility, and cost. However movies are created, they can flow into a digital cinema pipeline.

Digitisation of Indian cinema

Many single screen cinemas are going digital in line with multiplex screens to enhance users’ experience. There are currently approximately 1500 digital cinema screens in India.

There are several advantages of digital cinema screens, most prominent of which includes savings on print costs and reducing piracy.
