ITU-R REPORT BT.2053
Large screen digital imagery
|Publication Date:||1 November 2009|
Radiocommunication TG 6/9 was formed by SG 6 in 2002 as a result of the adoption of ITU-R Question 15/6 "Digital cinema (D-Cinema) broadcasting". Dr Joseph Flaherty of the North American Broadcasting Association (NABA) chaired the task group.
Radiocommunication TG 6/9 held its first meeting in March 2002. Some questions were raised concerning the scope of the task group; and it was concluded that aspects specifically relating to motion pictures (movies) should be based on standards developed by the motion picture expert groups. As a result, a revised Question was prepared and subsequently adopted, and the term "large-scale digital imagery (LSDI)" has been employed to describe the area of work of the task group. The revised Question is attached as Appendix 1.
This Report is intended to supplement the set of Recommendations prepared by the task group, giving a brief summary of LSDI and the work of the task force and providing detailed information on LSDI technology and LSDI applications. A progress report on standardization for digital cinema is also included.
