European Digital Cinema Forum to hold its first Annual Convention in Munich, December 2016

London, UK ( October 19, 2016 ) -

The European Digital Cinema Forum (EDCF), the impartial European organisation that brings together the major players in the cinema technology world, is to hold its first Annual Convention later this year in Munich, Germany.

The Convention will take place on 1 December 2016, at the internationally renowned HFF Film School which is 50 years old this year, and will include a tour of the historic ARRI studios at BavariaFilm in Munich on the eve of the conference.

Unlike other events of this type, we are building an open day around the membership survey of interests undertaken earlier this year, and the topics to be covered will include all or some of the following: High Dynamic Range, High Frame Rate, Wider Color Gamut, Ang Lee’s ‘The Whole Shebang’, RGB laser projection, laser phosphor, 4K and UHD, 3D, immersive audio systems, immersive audio standards, SMPTE DCP, electronic delivery of films, digital archiving, 4D, immersive motion seating, Haptic cinematography, Virtual reality: creation, Virtual reality: screening, Cinema analytics and more.

David Hancock, President of the EDCF, comments ‘We are very excited to be holding our first annual convention for members and non-members alike. The EDCF is a forum for discussion, information sharing, education and opinion and we have planned a full day around the most exciting topics that are engaging the industry at the moment. The idea of the EDCF is to share, and we aim to provide an impartial platform for all industry professionals to swap ideas, opinions, and information but also to learn about all aspects of the cinema technology sector.’

The EDCF is partnering with Germany’s local trade association for cinema and TV technology, the FKTG, whose President Siegfried Fößel is also an EDCF Board Member. The Convention is free for EDCF members and with a fee of EUR50 for non-members to attend.

The EDCF is a not-for-profit voluntary organisation that aims to act as a “Forum” to discuss key issues surrounding Digital Cinema in Europe.

The purpose of EDCF is to provide a basis of common understanding across all European territories of the business and technical matters of digital cinema. We were established in 2000, before the widespread rollout of digital cinema technology, in order to accompany the rollout and minimise any impact on European cinema, as well as putting forward a European point of view of cinema technology within global standards organisations. Our work has now widened to include all technologies in cinema.

Membership is open to any organisation or individual with a genuine interest in furthering the knowledge and understanding of digital cinema.
