Digital Cinema at the 2015 Berlinale
Concurrent with cinema technology developments in recent years, the Berlin International Film Festival has been bringing its facilities up to the newest digital standards. The digital proportion of the approximately 2,500 film screenings will again be over 95 percent this year. The majority of festival screenings will be DCPs (Digital Cinema Packages). Seven companies - Colt Technology Services, Rohde & Schwarz DVS, Arri, Dolby, Barco, Highlands Technologies Solutions and Aspera, an IBM company - will provide support to the Berlinale in the area of digital cinema, ensuring that the festival's digital infrastructure is exemplary and digital formats are received, converted, tested, stored, transferred to the venues and projected onto the screens seamlessly.
