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.
    • Audio should already be embedded into the video, otherwise, you will need to purchase separate service.
    • 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.

The process:

  • Deliver your master file digitally or send it via mail
    • We prefer that you send files directly to our file server
  • Once we receive and verify your file, we will send an invoice
  • When the invoice is paid, we will begin making your DCP
  • In most cases it takes us 5-7 business days (for standard DCP services)
  • For festival pricing and services, we typically send DCP download links about 10-14 days following the festival.
  • You receive a link where festivals/theatres/you can download your DCP
  • If you order one, we will send the hard drive to one location within the USA if you order a drive.
