excited that the Digital Screen Selector continues to prove such a popular tool

Selector to identify cost-effective solutions for digital cinema conversion and
encourage theatre operators throughout the world to utilise the insights the
application provides. We believe the
Digital Screen Selector is still very much achieving this aim and the rate of
growth of the user base strongly suggests so.
It’s clear that these types of applications are of significant value and
we’ll continue to look at ways to further enhance the Digital Screen Selector
and develop other tools to assist cinema operators across the globe over the

Digital Screen Selector is designed to maximise the return on investment in
digital cinema by optimising screen selection based on custom exhibition needs.
The Digital Screen Selector has a
user-friendly interface with no software download required and uses
industry-accepted standards and vendor data to compare different operating scenarios.
The Digital Screen Selector is intended to be a guide for theatre operators
when consulting with projector, lamp and 3D technology providers.

costs for 2D, as well as optimising light levels for both 2D and 3D cinema.
