  International Edition No. 101 - year 9 - 3 February 2014


Dear readers,

this issue of DGT Online Informer is first and foremost an invitation to discover the new edition of DiGiTalk, to be presented at the traditional event organized by MEDIA Salles at the Berlinale in collaboration with AG Kino and CICAE.

As you know, DiGiTalk takes the form of a small, pocket-sized booklet, which is actually a reference point for those looking for a snapshot of the digitalization of movie theatres worldwide and, at the same time, a glance at its future prospects. All this complete with the most up-to-date statistics on digital screens in Europe and in the rest of the world.

This is why, whilst this DGT Online Informer offers an overview of digital at 30 June 2013, you are warmly invited to the Berlin event, where we shall be presenting the main figures at 1st January 2014 and announcing the next edition of our course DigiTraining Plus: New Technologies for the European Cinemas of the Future.

We look forward to seeing you in Berlin!

Elisabetta Brunella
Secretary General of MEDIA Salles

Digital roll-out as at 30 June 2013: 101,100 screens worldwide

Discover the situation as at 1st January 2014 in Berlin!

At mid-2013 over 100,000 screens were equipped with DLP Cinema™ or Sony SXRD™ technology, coming to represent over 80% of all commercial screens.
Of the world's 101,100 digital screens, over 39,000 - or around 39% - are situated in North America, whilst, with 27,457 theatres having converted to the new technology, Europe now represents around 27% of overall digital screens, a percentage very similar to that in Asia and Oceania.
As regards the growth rates, the areas that have recorded the largest growth rates over the first six months of 2013 are Latin America (+40.6%) and Africa and the Middle East (+33.5%), whilst digitalization has slowed down in those countries that are nearing the end of the conversion process, such as Europe (+9.5%) and above all North America (+7.6%).
