Hollywood going more 3-D with new agreement for digital distribution


If you saw Beowulf in 3D this past holiday season, you were no doubt blown away. It looked fantastic, and with Hollywood gearing up more 3-D releases, animated and not, the smart theater owner is upgraded his equipment.

Thankfully, it’s starting now. Disney, Fox, Paramount and Universal will all start shooting with a standard 3-D system supported by Access Integrated Technologies to help outfit over 10,000 theaters nationwide with the requisite 3-D projection equipment.

This gear will also aid in digital distribution of films, giving the studios better management over where and when their features are shown, as much camcorder piracy goes on in lax theaters after hours.
