In working with Studio 120 for the Twin Cities Film Fest this year, we have nothing but praise for their hard work and attention to detail in helping us produce the highest quality DCP files. The team at Studio 120 took our project and worked diligently to make sure that we were happy with the end result. The pricing for DCP conversion at Studio 120 is very competitive and we’ve even recommended some of our filmmakers to them for that reason. We hope to form a long term relationship with Studio 120 as we grow our organization.

Studio 120 Introduces Digital Cinema Packaging

Studio 120 is one of the few companies that have the latest technology, experience and knowledgeable engineers to assist with the generation of digital cinema packaging.

What is a Digital Cinema Package (DCP)?

A: DCP is a collection of digital files (equivalent to a 35mm film print) that store and transfer digital cinema image, audio, and data streams.
These files are converted into a digital format that is compatible for the equipment housed in a commercial theater (also known as “D-Cinema”) projector. Similar to 35mm print, a DCP is a universal standard. Any D-Cinema theater in the world would be able to play your DCP without an issue.

Compatibility – As a result of the development of D-Cinema, 35mm film has virtually disappeared in the last few years. Most theaters do not have any 35mm equipment at all! Essentially all new theaters are digital only, as a result, you’ll need a DCP.
Another advantage of DCPs is they don’t wear out like 35mm. Digital copies are very durable, so you’ll never have a broken, scratched or dirty DCP.
