B’cast India confab kicks off

BOMBAY — The seventh consecutive Broadcast India ’97, a three-day annual event, began here Thursday at the World Trade Center, with more than 65 exhibitors taking stands to display their latest equipment over the weeklong event to an estimated 15,000 visiting film professionals.

Gary Holt, managing director of Dolby Labs, London, is among those attending the trade show. “Dolby has been participating for six years,” Holt said. “We find this event useful because of the personal contacts we make with professionals in the business and with studios and theaters.”

Dolby now has its systems in about 200 cinemas, of which 40 also have upgraded to Dolby Digital.

“India is a huge potential market compared with other countries in Southeast Asia,” Holt added. While China has 900 cinemas, only seven or eight have installed digital Dolby; in India, which has just 200 cinemas, 40 already boast digital Dolby.
