DCI Has Lost Its Way

Fri, 09/14/2018 - 12:11 -- Michael Karagosian

The way it’s supposed to work, a cinema should be able to acquire DCI Compliant equipment with the assurance that first release movies would not be withheld for reason of having the wrong gear. With the recent release of its DCI Memorandum Regarding Direct View Displays, it is no longer clear where DCI is heading.

AAM: Creating the Path to Cinema’s Future

Tue, 07/24/2018 - 13:04 -- Nick Dager

Arts Alliance Media first opened its doors in London June 17, 2003. In those very early days of digital cinema, the new company and its ten employees carved out a space in technology and what was then called alternative content.
