Digitale Cinematographie 2012 - Cinema Art in 4K


10 years Digitale Cinematographie! On July 5 and 6 Digitale Cinematographie will celebrate its anniversary at the Alte Kongresshalle on Theresienhöhe in Munich, Germany.

For the 10th anniversary of Digitale Cinematographie the organisers Martin Ludwig (Ludwig Kameraverleih GmbH), Gerhard Baier (Leica Summilux-C) and Martin Kreitl (MKMedia Production) have come up with some special highlights. A large cinema located in the new annexe of the Munich Transport Museum opposite the Congress Centre will serve as the venue for the acclaimed screenings. With a true 4K presentation equalling four times full HD resolution, show reels, documentaries and film clips of current productions made by international camera and director giants will be shown and discussed interactively with the audience. Ted Schilowitz (RED), Geoff Boyle (DoP), Jon Fauer (Film and Digital Times), Louis-Philippe Capelle (DoP) and Philippe Ros (DoP) any many others are expected to attend.

The event has become one of the most important industry events in the last decade and in 2012 it will once again show the way in the rapidly developing digital film and cinema world. Unlike in previous years visitors won't have to take tough decisions about which screenings and workshops they want to attend.

The workshop programme for the anniversary event features a host of international speakers and current workflow topics which we cannot announce at this stage. The workshops and the screenings will focus on 4K. Special attention will be given to the processing of 4K material. Other topics include: the challenge of recording and transporting major data streams, which codecs can ensure image quality and how to manage distribution. The latest solutions will be presented and critically analysed from a practical standpoint. The workshops will be booked out very quickly due to the high-end nature of the topics and the high calibre of speakers.As in previous years registration in advance will be necessary for some events.


Without a doubt the 10th Digitale Cinematographie - which this year is being held at the same time as the film festival - will be an extraordinary event with a level of expertise unparalleled in Munich.
