Finally finished your film? Need to get it pressed and ready for the film festival screening? DCP (Digital Cinema Package) is the standard that has replaced 35mm prints when exhibiting final copies to a cinema. DCP’s can be a lengthy process and render heavy on your own computer. In order to help the community of artist we serve, we offer DCP creation services at reasonable rates to help remove presentation barriers for filmmakers.
Video: Apple ProRes 4444 or DNxHR 4444 export (24fps not 23.98)
Audio: Stereo audio mix or 6 mono stems for 5.1 (all labelled appropriately)
In most cases, the final DCP will be presented on a CRU drive. This is a specialized hard drive that is designed to interface directly with the cinema’s Doremi or Dolby servers. We highly recommend that you use a CRU drive when sending out to festivals since they can play directly off the drive and use it as a back up if there is any playback issues. Filmmakers can use USB sticks, hard drives or cloud services to send out their DCP to a festival.

Creating a DCP is not an exact science due to its format. We have noticed that a very small amount of DCPs get rejected at the ingest stage of the cinema server. This is not due to the quality of the process but something that does happen time to time. If there is at all any reason that the DCP we create for you doesn’t mount or has issues in projection we will be happy to re-export a new DCP for you at no additional charge. However, Trinity Square Video is not responsible for creating new DCPs if there is an issue with the video file you have provided or if you need to change something editorially with your film. It is the filmmakers responsibility to attend the cinema’s tech check to ensure the sync, picture and sound quality is adequate. Trinity Square Video does not check any audiovisual properties that do not pertain to the creation of the DCP. If you have any issues, please don’t hesitate to give us a call for clarification.
