Digital Cinema Packages

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.

Digital Cinema Packages

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


What is a Digital Cinema Package?

Digital Cinema Packages, or 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 format compatible with the equipment housed in a commercial theater (also known as “D-Cinema”), projector.  Similar to 35mm print, DCP is a universal standard and any D-Cinema theater would be able to accommodate your presentation without issue.
Compatibility – As a result of the development of D-Cinema, 35mm film has virtually disappeared over the last few years.  Most theaters no longer support this format!  Essentially, all new theaters are digital only and thus, you’ll need a DCP.
Another advantage of DCP’s is their ability to outlast 35mm.  Digital copies are incredibly durable so you’ll never experience a broken, scratched or dirty DCP.
