Digital Cinema Package Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the benefit of DCP (Digital Cinema Package)?
there are two reasons: First, compatibility by 2015 - Due to the emergence of D-Cinema, 35mm film has nearly vanished in the last few years. Many theaters do not have any 35mm equipment at all! Virtually all new theaters are digital only.
The second reason is cost. The process of converting your digital files into a film
print is typically $40,000 or more.
With such large cost savings, it is easy to see why all the major film studios have moved towards digital distribution.
Another benefit is that DCPs don't wear out like 35mm. Digital copies do not degrade, so you'll never have a broken, scratched or dirty DCP. The 1000th screening will look just as perfect as the first.
