‘Bride’ groomed for digital

“Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride” is making its way to Japan in bits and bytes. The toon is the first movie going out as part of a yearlong test Warner Bros., Nippon Telegraph & Telephone and Toho Cinemas are conducting to distribute high-resolution digital cinema over fiber-optic lines. The movies will be in 4K format, the highest resolution currently available for digital cinema. They will be sent over NTT’s fiber-optic lines from WB’s Burbank HQ across the Pacific and then distributed to three Toho theaters in Osaka and Tokyo. WB and NTT have been talking about such a test for a year, but had to wait until Digital Cinema Initiatives completed its technical specification for d-cinema, which occurred in August.
