Silver halide film as a content distribution media will vanish before the end of the decade!

OK… perhaps a more surprising prediction! I wanted to take the opportunity to mention Coughlin’s excellent report on industry trends. There are many great predictions in it including this slightly left-field one! The obvious question arises – “People still use silver halide film for content distribution…. Really?” It is truly amazing how long legacy formats linger in the marketplace, and how long it will take to transfer legacy archives onto more adaptable technologies.

The Prediction

Silver halide film will disappear as a distribution media! But people will still be stuck with unmanageable, costly and non-revenue generating, legacy media archives.
