How it Works

We can provide the following:

  • Complete 2K and 4K Digital Cinema Packages (DCP)
  • We do a quality control evaluation both the submitted file and the final DCP
  • 6-month download access for your DCP through Dropbox
  • Linux DCP formatted hard drive USB 3.0 or a theatre ready CRU-DX115 drive.
  • Priority mail delivery (2-3 days) of your hard drive (if ordered)
  • We can communicate with a festival or theatre technician to insure compatibility
  • For physical media (DVD or Blu-Ray) we can provide a single, autoplay movie in stereo; a movie with one menu for stereo or surround options; a movie with three static menus and six media elements.

What you provide:

  • A master file –
    • Preferred: HD ProRes 4:2:2 or 4:2:2 HQ with stereo or 5.1 sound
    • We can take most standard formats such s MP4 or MOV.
    • Contact us if you have a different file format
    • Do not have countdowns, color bars or anything extra. We process your DCP “as is” when delivered.
    • REMEMBER: Your DCP will only be as good as the file you submit to us. Errors on the big screen or more likely to be accented rather than diminished.
  • Multichannel audio (5.1) must be one (1) track of audio (with 6 channels), not 6 tracks of individual mono channels;  also do not provide a stereo pair on channels 7/8 or any additional wild tracks.
  • For DVD or Blu-Ray authoring, provide the same type of movie file as outlined below for DCPs.
  • For DVD or Blu-Ray authoring, if we are creating menus, please send preferred (static) artwork for menus and let us know what elements you would like on each menu.
  • For single-movie DVD/Blu-Ray auto play, please send a stereo file. If you need surround added, this will have to be the additional menu option or mastering for duplication option.

The process:

  • Deliver your master file digitally or send it via mail
    • We prefer you use our file server to upload directly to us.
    • Digital files can  easily be sent via Dropbox or Aspera. We avoid most other transfer services.
  • Once we receive and verify your file, we will send an invoice
  • When the invoice is paid, we will begin your order
  • In most cases it takes us 11-14 business days
  • You will then receive a link where festivals/theatres/you can download your files and/or we will send them via FedEx
  • We will send the hard drive and/or physical media to one location within the USA if you order a drive.
