Conclusion

This Analytic article has summarised the salient issues surrounding the Celluloid and Silicon? debate. The technology is not a barrier to the adoption of the system. It needs big investment, but the savings and new market opportunities could make the payback relatively short. What will it take to turn the industry round and look at the possibilities seriously?

Will it open new markets motivated by a commitment to preserving cultural heritage and diversity, or will it become just another tentacle of the mass media industry. Only time will tell. No one disagrees on one thing; the possibilities are very exciting and not too far away.
