DIGITAL CINEMA SUMMIT ISE 2020
Cinema in the Home, Streaming and Event Cinema
The Digital Cinema Summit, presented by Integrated Systems Europe in conjunction with Digital Cinema Report, highlights how advances in digital cinema technology are transforming not just how movie theatres around the world operate but the kinds of content they can offer to their customers. Top digital cinema technology experts from around the world will discuss those changes and the new developments on the horizon.
Cinema in the Home
Has home theatre caught up with the local cinema? Companies such as Barcelona’s Bel Air Cinema now offer first-run movies to homeowners willing to pay several thousand dollars per title for the privilege. These homes have personal theatres with the latest technology that costs hundreds of thousands of dollars. What is the future of that market and how will it impact mainstream cinema?
There was an effort last year to bring at least 30 percent EU-originated content to Netflix and Amazon. What is the status of that effort and how will it affect filmmakers and cinemas in Europe? What are the BBC and CST doing in this regard? A bigger question, how should theatre owners respond?
Driven by technology, event cinema continues to grow and it’s especially strong and diverse in Europe. Exhibitors are now offering gaming and eSports in cinemas, where the experience is ten times bigger than anything available in the home. What does this mean for theatre owners, for Hollywood and, for consumers?
