Digital cinema.

Digital cinema is the practice of digital motion picture distribution and exhibition. As more and more theaters nationwide are adding digital projection capabilities D-cinema is quickly becoming a feasible alternative to the traditional process of 35mm print distribution.

Material shown in digitally capable theaters does not always originate in digital form. Many films are shooting on 35mm negative film only to transition into the digital realm during the DI process.

Digital cinema offers a number of advantages. Digital projection offers superb and consistent sound and image quality which does not suffer from gate weave, scratches and other mechanical damage. Distribution of film on digital media costs a fraction of typical 35mm print shipping cost.
