Analytic No. 3 is focussed on e-cinema. It is based on interviews with the management of Snell & Wilcox a UK leader in the field. The company is also the co-ordinator of the GFORS project in the EU 5th RTD programme (Interactive Electronic Publishing sector) - further details are available via the links below. We hope to continue to link analysis with interviews from projects in the programme.

Celluloid or Silicon?

Basic cinema technology has remained almost unchanged for over 100 years. The Celluloid or Silicon? roadshow, which took place in the UK during October and November 2000, set out to challenge the supremacy of celluloid and raise awareness of the new possibilities presented by the emerging e-cinema.

Celluloid or Silicon? received technical support from Aston Electronics, British Telecom, Cintel International, Digital Projection, HD Thames, Quantel and Snell & Wilcox. Additional support came from the British Film Institute, Department of Culture, Media & Sport, Department of Trade & Industry, and Screen Digest. You can find more information via the roadshow web site.

In this Analytic article, we look at the technology, applications, and business issues. We invited Roderick Snell and Peter Wilson of Snell & Wilcox to give their perspective on the issues raised, and their contributions are shown in quotes.
