The “Digital Cinema Package” is a digital projection format that has replaced 35mm film in cinemas. It’s a group of digital files including a stream of images and one or several audio and subtitling data streams. These files are compiled and stored on a hard drive, and require a D-Cinema compatible projector and server in order to read the DCP format. 2012 was a transitional year for all Swiss cinemas as they changed over to this technology; all new films are now only available in digital format. The quality they offer is at least equivalent to that of 35mm film. Furthermore, the DCP format ensures that quality and compatibility remain constant from one theatre to the next.


Another argument in favour of the DCP format is that it’s a lot cheaper to produce than 35mm film, and that copies are easily transportable on small pocket-sized hard drives that only weigh a couple of grams, unlike their fragile and cumbersome 35mm film counterparts.


Your DCP can be encoded (or not) to avoid fraudulent copies from being made. In order to read the content, a digital key (code) unique to the server must be sent to the cinema and installed on the server, authorising the file to be read, and offering features such as projection logging, and defining start and end dates of authorised projections.
