SMPTE Hollywood will explore the digital cinema package and its role in getting movies to the theatre at its April 13 in-person meeting. A pair of experts in feature film mastering will explain the varying components of DCPs, best practices in preparing them and new ways of delivering them to movie theaters.
They will provide valuable insights into this complex but essential subject useful to professionals involved in every stage of the production cycle.
SMPTE Hollywood’s first in-person meeting since the beginning of the pandemic, the event will take place at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences’ Linwood Dunn Theatre in Hollywood.
DCP has been the standard format for the delivery of films to theaters since the advent of digital cinema.
For years, DCPs were shipped to theaters on hard drives, but today there is a move to deliver via satellites or the internet. The contents of DCPs vary considerably, based on such requirements as display format, foreign languages, and subtitling. They also involve precise technical specifications for encoding, security and other details.
The speakers are Sean Romano, senior vice president of operations at Eikon Group, Burbank, and Nick Mitchell, chief technical officer at WildAcre Company.
The event is produced by Bill Hogan.
Attendees must present proof of full vaccination or negative COVID-19 PCR test. Face masks required.
