Telecine is a method to make an illegal bootleg copy of an original movie. Telecine method can be done in various ways, but normally it includes extracting the movie directly from the reel to digital format and then encoded into VCD, SVCD or DivX format. Not to be confused with 'Telesync', defined elsewhere on UrbanDictionary.
Many people in the industry pronounce this word "telli-sin-ee", however, others say it like "telli-seen".
