Where digital cinema is concerned, Peter Wilson belongs to what could be called the ?don?t rush it? school of thought. Wilson, manager of HDTV and advanced technology at Snell & Wilcox, chairs the European Digital Cinema Forum?s technical group and has become a big ally of the Digital Cinema Initiative (DCI), which comprises the major Hollywood studios. ?The problem today is that we haven?t decided what we want, so we have to do that first,? says Wilson. ?The processes are being driven by people waving numbers in the air without knowing what numbers they need from a creative or aesthetic point of view.
