A new report from SCRI International found that 39.4 percent of producers already shoot feature films on digital as opposed to film.
The "2004-2006 Digital Cinema Marketplace Report" said the incidence skews to the film production and post vertical market at 47.1 percent, and less to the video sector at 35.2 percent.
There also appears to be a strong intent to acquire digital hardware in the next few years, particularly as HD prices drop. Cumulative use or intent to use digital hardware is expected to spike to 72.2 percent in 2005.
Data for the report was derived from extensive surveys conducted by SCRI, in conjunction with several industry sites.
