It has become part of our lifestyle choices. Its ramifications are widespread and inescapable for most people. In the digital era, cinema has been reformed into an advanced craft of art. The digital medium has penetrated the entire scenario of cinema including the way films are made, distributed and consumed. From the equipment used in the production to the software used in editing films are all practically in the digital realm now.

The archiving and reproducing of the film materials have also gone through tremendous changes since digital took over from analogue system. Movies have gone out of the dark space of the movie halls and are now available in the “cloud.”

Cinema’s transition towards the digital started towards the end of the twentieth century and has since then accelerated at a geometric progression in the last two decades. Distribution systems became simpler and faster than previous distributing process through internet or satellites, etc. Digital products can be delivered to those who want instantly via satellite link or digital OTT platforms.

The digital acceleration of cinema has been increased considerable by the ongoing pandemic that has affected the whole world.

The theatre became a place full of peril. Undoubtedly, there are some OTT platforms to overcome the jeopardy of the great loss of film industries all over the world.
