DigiTraining Plus 2009: New Technologies Programme from Media

“DigiTraining Plus 2009: European Cinemas Experiencing New Technologies”

In accordance with its popular six-year tradition, MEDIA Salles takes great pleasure in announcing the 2009 edition of the “DigiTraining Plus” course: “European Cinemas Experiencing New Technologies”, now confirmed for a further 4 years, thanks to the new contract signed with the EU MEDIA Programme.

DGT, the only initiative in the MEDIA Programme to concentrate on new technologies from the cinemas’ point of view, updates and informs exhibitors and representatives of professional associations and public institutions on the status and latest news about digital cinema technology, not only from a technical point of view but also from the perspective of those who may be considering adopting new technologies themselves in the near future.

The 2009 Course, which will again take place in London from 25 February to 1 March 2009, will feature a unique and intensive programme, thanks to the collaboration of experts of international renown.
The lectures will cover the main points involved in making the digital transition as trouble-free as possible, whilst also drawing attention to the risks and opportunities involved. Professionals of the cinema industry from other parts of the world will share their knowledge on burning issues such as standards, availability of digital contents and the prospects for 3D. To make the approach more realistic, the case-study method will be used, to identify the business models that have been adopted in Europe. An important source of added value, which greatly enhances the programme, are the field visits to cinemas that already use digital projection, thus giving participants the chance to assess the technology at close quarters, on the basis of hands-on experience.

The Course gives to exhibitors and professionals the chance to:

Acquire the necessary knowledge and skills to successfully operate in the field of digital projection in cinemas;
Acquire skills to analyze the new markets and targets which might be reached thanks to digital cinema;
Get to know the most important international companies in this field;
Create a network of contacts to compare with;
Update on the latest offers of digital cinema.
