If you’ve ever seen a movie projected in DLP, you know why Digital Projection will be the wave of the future. Imagine watching a movie print for the first time, never seeing the “cigar burns” of the joined reels, and most importantly, not seeing the big flakes of film that fall off the reel after a couple dozen showings.
Theatres are in the embryonic stages of going all digital, theatre owners are Digitizing the Multiplex. This means that rather than an elaborate system of distribution (which involves shipping huge reels of film all across the country), we will have an elaborate electronic system of distribution, where the movies will fly through secure pipelines.
It’s all very exciting, especially if you like your movies pristine, and are starting to think that your home theatre system is getting better than the movie theatre.
