Inter-Society Digital Cinema Forum (ISDCF)

The goal of ISDCF is to provide a forum to discuss issues for the World Wide launch of Digital Cinema. We have over 250 members participating including Studios, Exhibitors, Integrators, Equipment Manufacturers, Consultants, and other committees.

Our main method of work is through meetings - held about once a month in Los Angeles / Burbank. We encourage call-in participation.

Reflector for the main group. You can subscribe to this discussion group at http://lists.isdcf.com/listinfo.cgi/isdcf-isdcf.com all are welcome to join.

We post meeting notes, files, schedules in a private section of this site. (Private mainly to keep spiders and spamers at a distance. Send an email to ispassword-at-isdcf.com and it will auto-respond with the password.)
