In its newsletter dated January 12, 2009, the Digital Cinema Society published a list of motion picture and television productions that used digital or HD camera systems during 2008. The numbers are revealing:

•  High-profile TV movies and specials, approximately 26

•  3D (stereoscopic) live-action features, 8
