DCP (Digital Cinema Package) is a digital technology invented by the consortium of all world producing studios DCI (Digital Cinema Initiatives) for distribution and screening in film theatres. The films are distributing on hard disks and mirror disks, flash cards, and by satellite links also. The screening is checked by special record players and digital projectors.
This is a standard balance of screen sides which are used in digital cinema:
For the Flat format 1998×1080 (24 frames a second) resolution is appropriate. For the Scope format 2048×858 (24 frames a second) resolution is the best. If your film has a different resolution, we’ll try to adjust it for film theaters screenings.
2k and 4k — these are the labels of DCP’s resolutional ability, it shows round-off pixels amount across. It should be noted that currently 4k convertation into DCP is outdated for several reasons:
In Russia there are not enough projecting cameras that can hand out 4k resolution.
There are two options in tat case:
In the latter case FLAT will have small black margins on each sides on the right and left (on a big screen this won’t be visible). The margins for SCOPE format will be somewhat bigger.
All films set technical tests in film theaters, we use Dolby DSS200, Dolby DSP100 for DCP sets control. We can make screen prints to make not question of.
KDM (Key Delivery Message) is a «key», needed for playing of the codified DCP-file. For each film theater special key is generated with its own expiring date. As a rule this is not relevant for non-profit screening at the festival.
We can replace the audio tracks, add subtitles and different commercial blocks using additional DCP set (Supplemental), it uses original DCP media data when playing.
On the server there must be both sets: original DCP and supplemental one. If you plan to release your film on several languages, supplemental will save your time and resources.
DCP copies of the film are delivered to film theaters on hard disks and in special shockproof hard cases.
Nowadays digital film delivery via satellite and Internet channels is extensively developing. Cinelab and DCP24 work at it. You can send short length films to the festival on USB-card or portable hard disk. Absolutely all cinema servers support standard file systems as Windows: FAT32 and NTFS. If your film capacity is more than 4Gb (as in most cases), USB drive must be formatted to NTFS,as the FAT32 file system do not supply files with more than 4Gb capacity. We recommend to use caddies with DCP files only (without any additional ones).
You can use Stereoscopic player that play out no-ciphered DCP-sets (no key is needed). You can download program trial version on the official site www.3dtv.at. Private use license costs 39 euros, test-version can play only 5 minutes video part.
Short-length film (15 минут) seize 30 Gb (easily included into USB-drive). Feature length film (120 minutes) can be more than 100 Gb.
