John Marino, NAB Vice President, Science & Technology, said, "Now in its fifth year, the Digital Cinema Summit is a very important educational segment of NAB2006." "Our partnerships with the Entertainment Technology Center at USC and SMPTE ensure that NAB2006 attendees receive the most relevant and up-to-date status of technologies critical for the analog to digital transition of the cinema industry."

SMPTE President Edward Hobson, said, "It’s time to step back and see what we can learn from the first wave of distribution and exhibition products and services as well as pioneering digital cinema release materials. The Saturday sessions will look at what has worked, what needs to improve, and what lies in the imminent future, so that digital cinema can continue to expand."

Added Charles S. Swartz, executive director/CEO, ETC-USC, "Digital cinema has moved rapidly from prototype to realization and there are a host of new prospects on the near horizon in production and post. We are excited to bring this real-world information to Summit attendees, so they can take their digital cinema activities to the next level as well as make informed decisions on the convention floor."

The Digital Cinema Summit is designed for people in the entertainment, entertainment technology, and creative and technical production and postproduction arenas. [1]
