Tech Digest: Digital 3D screens generate on average three times more revenue reckons Analyst Screen Digest; which is why they’re rocketing in popularity – at the end of 2006 there were 258 digital 3D screens worldwide and already this has risen to 750.
By 2009 Screen Digest forecasts that there will be over 5,000 digital 3D screens worldwide; 5% of all cinema screens.
And with cinema admissions stabilising over the last few years, Screen Digest reckons 3D is a good way to get people back to the cinemas and away from those dodgy shakycam Bittorrent bootlegs.
“Digital 3D has the potential to give the cinema industry a shot in the arm to counter flat admissions over recent years.”
Just as the gap between cinema and home cinema seemed to be getting smaller, the cinema industry has again proven that it can reinvent itself in the face of competition…” says Charlotte Jones, Screen Digest Analyst.
