[ EEPI-Discuss ] Disney to back digital film projection


   Walt Disney Co. on Thursday agreed to be the first movie studio
   to help finance the digital distribution of its movies,
   jump-starting a decade-long effort to usher the nation's theaters
   into the electronic age and phase out the treasured - but
   expensive - tradition of film.

   The agreement between Disney's Buena Vista Pictures Distribution,
   projector maker Christie Digital Systems Inc. and software
   company Access Integrated Technologies Inc., or AccessIT, calls
   for 150 new digital movie screens to be up by year's end and as
   many as 4,000 by the end of 2007.
